Love this movie and Cumberbatch plays the Doctor just perfectly. Good acting all around, great action sequences and the special effects are out of this world, stunning. The story is good and the esoteric mentions have been well researched, works well in the plot.
My brother took me to see Infinity wars when it first came out and apparently I missed a few movies because when I noticed a guy with a cape floating around using magic I didn't know, I knew somewhere I was lost in the series... So I decided to go and buy all the movies before Infinity Wars and seen this one and finally caught up to where I am no longer lost in the series! XD
Not a big fan of comic book movies, but this was remarkable. A simple story with deeper themes told in a visually orgasmic way. Well worth watching, even if (like me) comic book films aren't your regular jam.
One of my favorite Marvel movies! Beautifully done and stays pretty damn true to the origin. They modernized it a little, but I'm completely fine with that. Make sure to watch all the extras, after credit scenes, and gag reel! They're fantastic!
