Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Doctor Strange

Marvel have now reached a point - aided by the lacklustre attempts of rivals - where they can comfortably dig out tertiary characters and use them to print money, so long as the framework doesn't stray too far from the origin/villain/twist formula. Remarkably, even 14 films in, watching 6 great actors - Swinton, Wong, Ejiofor, Cumberbatch, McAdams and Mikkelsen - having fun still feels like a breath of fresh air.
