We would like to remind everyone that “Doctor Strange” is playing in cinemas in the U.K. and Ireland starting today. The movie will also get released in several key majors including the France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Australia and Korea this week. The movie will be released in the United States on November 4th and currently holds a 97% rating at Rotten Tomatoes (based on 37 reviews) and a 75 score at Meta Critics (based on 15 reviews). The visuals and visual effects have received critical acclaim thus far. We made a review round-up in this post. Sadly, critics seem to agree Rachel’s Christine Palmer is being underused.
““Strange” arguably features the most talented Marvel cast to date with acclaimed actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen bringing the origin of the Sorcerer Supreme to the big screen. It goes without saying that McAdams will never get the credit she deserves for transforming the barely sketched out role of Strange’s former medical colleague Christine Palmer into a captivating three-dimensional character that feels like an integral part of the storyline even when she isn’t.”
