Doctor Strange has already been released in the UK and a handful of other international locations ahead of its debut in North America next Friday, but if you're curious about what to expect and not too worried about some potentially major spoilers, you're going to want to keep on reading. As of right now, the movie has a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes, but does it actually deserve such high praise?
Yes and no. There's an awful lot Doctor Strange does right and it's undeniably a strong introduction for the Sorcerer Supreme and the concept of magic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there are inevitably some things which don't work quite as well, and while these are perhaps minor nitpicks compared to the amazing things the movie gets right, they're definitely still worth highlighting here.
