FW MOVIE PICK: DOCTOR STRANGE: THE SORCERER SUPREME

Doctor Strange (2007)Way before the 2016 “Doctor Strange” was introduced to me, I was treated to this Marvel Animated Feature and I have to say its not that bad of an adaptation of the soucre material! Talented yet arrogant surgeon Dr. Stephen Strange (Bryce Johnson) suffers a crippling injury to his hands in a car accident. On a recommendation from his colleague Wong (Paul Nakauchi), the doctor travels to far-off Tibet to receive physical and spiritual healing from the renowned Ancient One (Michael Yama). During this process, Strange unwittingly acquires immense power, turning him into a sorcerer. He then uses his new abilities to fight an evil villain who’s trying to take over the world. The movie does manage to get the character’s origin right even though its pacing is off, but once the action scenes kick into overdrive, you won’t be disappointed near the end.
