(2016) (Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A gravely injured surgeon seeks out a hidden world of mysticism for healing, acquires supernatural powers, and becomes embroiled in an interstellar war that threatens Earth.
- Dr. Stephen Strange (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) is one of the world's top neurosurgeons. He appears to have everything. Money, prestige, a staff position at one of New York City's finest hospitals, and an ongoing flirtation with the pretty Dr. Christine Palmer (RACHEL McADAMS). But the good doctor takes his hand off the wheel for a moment ... literally …... crashing his sports car outside the city and causing terrible nerve damage to his hands and fingers.
After seeking the advice of Jonathan Pangborn (BENJAMIN BRATT) a man who miraculously beat paralysis, Strange travels to Nepal to seek out a secret society of healers. What he finds is a cult-like order under the direction of The Ancient One (TILDA SWINTON). He is accepted into her inner circle, which includes the warrior Mordo (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR) and keeper of the records, Wong (BENEDICT WONG). Among them, he learns to control energy, create portals to other dimensions, and wield supernatural powers.
He also is placed into harm's way. A former disciple of The Ancient One's, Kaecilius (MADS MIKKELSEN), has returned to steal pages from a centuries-old text that he hopes to decipher. His goal is to present Earth to a malevolent, all-powerful, intergalactic tyrant named Dormammu (voice of CUMBERBATCH), who yearns to bring our world into his dark dimension and consume it.
