The Reel Review


The latest outing by Marvel Comics stars Benedict Cumberbatch as an arrogant, ostentatiously successful neurosurgeon, who, after a career-ending auto accident, lands a new gig as a sorcerer during a life-changing trip to Nepal. The true star of this eye-popping cinematic extravaganza, however, is the Matrix-meets-Inception visual effects, underscored by a clever, funny story and solid performances by Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton as his mystic/teacher. Despite the lack of character development or details on the time-bending aspects of the story, it’s still a fun ride that comic book nerds will go nuts over and will clean up in the technical categories come Oscar night. This is one that should definitely be experienced in IMAX 3D if at all possible.
