Blu-ray Review: Doctor Strange

February 28, 2017

By John Corrado

doctor-strange-blu-rayThe most recent piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange introduces us to Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a neurosurgeon who injures his hands and searches for healing in Nepal, leading him to be trained in the dark arts of being able to manipulate space and time by the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton).

Chock full of visually stunning set-pieces, and even mixing in some elements of pure psychedelia, Doctor Strange is more unique and interesting than the average blockbuster, providing an incredibly entertaining ride that takes the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some pretty exciting new directions.  We were fans of the film, and you can read our three views right here.

The Blu-ray includes a commentary track by director Scott Derickson, as well as deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, and five solid featurettes showing different parts of the production.  There’s also an exclusive look at Marvel’s upcoming slate of Phase Three films, which are all building towards next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, as well as the charming little short film Team Thor: Part 2 which catches us up with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his earthly roommate Darryl (Daley Pearson).  It’s good stuff all around.

Doctor Strange is a Marvel Studios release.  It’s 113 minutes and rated PG.
