You know you’ve seen jaw-dropping action scenes in movies. What you don’t know is how jaw-droppingly awesome the action is in “Doctor Strange.” Please, dear reader, if you enjoy grand visual spectacles that push modern visual effects to new limits, do not miss this movie.
Director Scott Derrickson (“Sinister”) takes the sidewalk and road bending of “Inception” to the next level and then some. Characters fight on the side of buildings, open portals to different dimensions, skyscrapers split in half, floors change shape and size, and more. So much more. These aren’t just exciting action scenes, these are fantastic visual sequences that truly have to be seen to be believed.
