Plot [edit | Edit source]

Kaecilius, a magician, kills the Kamar-Taj librarian and steals pages from the book of Cagliostro about a dangerous ritual. The eldest, the former master of Kaecilius, tries to stop him, but he escapes.

Dr. Stephen Strange, a famous and wealthy neurosurgeon, is known for his arrogance at the hospital where he works. He performs the most complicated procedures with ease. He shows interest in Christine Palmer, but his arrogance prevents a relationship.

When Dr. Strange drives his sports car to an event, a serious accident occurs because he is distracted from the traffic by remote diagnosis. His car overturned several times and his hands were crushed in the dashboard. The wrecked car is found hours later.

When Dr. Strange wakes up in the hospital and is appalled by the severity of his injury. He blames his colleagues for not being able to save his hands. He says he could have patched up the neurological damage on his hands. Dr. Strange gets his colleagues to operate on him again and again, even with experimental methods, but none of them have any effect and his hands are still restricted in mobility. A world is collapsing for him because he has defined himself through his skills as a surgeon. During a rehab session that Strange finds pointless, his therapist tells him about a paraplegic man who was able to walk again. Strange doesn't believe him, which is why the therapist sends him the patient's file. Strange then visits Jonathan Pangborn, the patient, who tells him where he was healed. Dr. Stange spends the last of his money and travels to Kathmandu to find Kamar-Taj.

In Kathmandu he asks his way around in the hope that someone will know Kamar-Taj. In an alley, Dr. Strange ambushed by muggers trying to steal his watch, his last possession. He is beaten up but rescued by Mordo, who heard that Strange was looking for Kamar-Taj. He leads Strange to the elder, in Kamar-Taj.

The eldest explains to Strange how the world really works, but he doesn't believe in magic and chakras. To convince him, she separates his soul from his body, shows him other dimensions and magic. Strange eagerly wants to learn all of this, but the eldest becomes concerned and throws him out. Strange tries to get back inside for five hours. Mordo stands up for Strange, and the elder changes her mind. Dr. Strange begins.

Strange has trouble using magic, but is an avid student. In the beginning he still had great problems opening portals with a sling ring, but he kept improving. Wong, the new librarian, is amazed at Strange's quick way of learning. In the library, Strange also discovers the book from which Kaecilius had stolen the pages. Wong explains to him that there is no such thing as forbidden knowledge, only forbidden practices.

Strange keeps learning, even from the more dangerous books. In doing so, he discovers instructions for the Agamotto eye that is kept nearby. He puts the chain on and realizes that he can use it to manipulate time by making the time for an apple run faster backwards and forwards. The Masters notice this and rebuke Strange. They explain to him that manipulating time can create paradoxes which, in the worst case, time itself could obliterate.

Immediately afterwards, Kaecilius attacks a temple in London. Strange ends up in the New York temple through a portal and has to help defend it shortly afterwards. It is explained to him that this temple, the one in London and the one in Hong Kong protect the world from threats from other dimensions. In the fight against Kaecilius' followers, Dr. Strange as a master. This helps him to make Kaecilius harmless. Kaecilius tells Strange of his plans. He is afraid of time and inevitable death, which is why he wants to open the way to earth for Dormammu, a being from a dimension in which there is no time. He tries to get Strange to his side, which he almost succeeds. Strange refuses, however. Strange is seriously injured by one of Kaecilius' followers, Lucian, and Kaecilius escapes. Strange can just open a portal to his hospital and collapses in front of Christine Palmer. On the operating table, Strange switches to the astral plane to support Christine with the operation. Lucian is stopped by Strange's coat. He also leaves his body to follow Strange. A battle on the astral plane ensues between Lucian and Strange, which Strange wins by having Christine give his body electric shocks, which give his spirit more strength. Back in his body, he says goodbye to the confused Christine and returns to the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Strange had learned from Kaecilius that the Elder used the dark energy of Dormammu's dimension to be immortal. Mordo doubts her and Strange has doubts too. The oldest says that sometimes you have to break rules.

When it comes to the renewed battle for the New York Temple, Strange and Mordo have no chance against Kaecilius. Dr. Strange succeeds in using the mirror dimension to protect the New York temple from the worst damage. In the mirror dimension, however, the forces of Kaecilius and his followers are much stronger due to their connection to the dark dimension. The eldest interferes in the fight and is seriously injured by Kaecilius. Strange brings her to Christine, but the eldest is dying. She leaves her body and changes to the astral plane, since time can pass more slowly there. She says goodbye to Strange. She knew for a long time that she would die here.

Dr. Strange and Mordo follow the other masters to Hong Kong to defend the last temple, but they are too late. The temple was also destroyed and all the masters were killed. With the eye of Agamotto, Strange lets time run backwards and thus revives all victims. Nevertheless, Dormammu's dimension breaks through the sky. Strange and Mordo face off again against Kaecilius and his followers. Strange realizes that there is only one way to stop Dormammu. He flies in Dormammu's dimension and performs a spell with the eye of Agamotto.

Once there, he offers Dormammu to negotiate. Dormammu just laughs at this and kills Dr. Strange. Again, Dr. Strange in front of Dormammu and offers him negotiations. Dormammu kills him again. Dormammu realizes that something is wrong. Strange explains to him that he has created a time warp in which the moment repeats itself until Dormammu is ready to spare the earth and withdraw his followers from the earth. Angry that he is trapped in time as a timeless being, he kills Strange over and over again. Strange endures it until Dormammu gives up. He withdraws into his dimension and takes Kaecilius and his followers with him. Strange then restores the Hong Kong temple.

Mordo is appalled by Strange's gimmick over time. He cannot approve of how the world was saved. After learning the truth about the elder and seeing how Strange breaks the rules too, he turns away from the other masters.

Dr. Strange casts off Agamotto's eye because he doesn't feel ready for it yet. Wong also says that you shouldn't be careless with an infinity stone.

In the mid-credit scene, Dr. Strange in his new seat in the New York Temple, visit. Dr. Strange asks Thor about his adoptive brother Loki and why he brought him back to Earth. Thor explains that they are looking for their missing father, Odin, who is said to be on Earth. When Thor assures him that he and Loki will promptly leave Earth as soon as they find Odin, Dr. Ask for his help in the search.

In the post-credit scene, Mordo attacks Pangborn, who can walk with magic despite his injuries. Mordo drains his power and says there are too many magicians.

Occupation [edit | Edit source]

Controversy Edit source]

The film was already accused of "whitewashing" (cast non-white characters with white actors). The reason for this is that the Asian The Ancient One is played by the Scottish actress Tilda Swinton. In conversation with Double toasted Screenwriter C. Robert Cargill justified this decision as follows:

"There is no other character in Marvel history who is such a cultural landmine that you just can't get around. [...] The Ancient One is a racist stereotype that comes from a region of this world that is in is in a very difficult political situation. [...] And you risk the Chinese government saying 'Hey, do you know one of the biggest cinema countries in the world? We won't show your film because you made up your mind to do it politically to become.' If you [again] think it would be a good idea to cast a Chinese actress as a Tibetan character, then you've lost your bloody mind and haven't the slightest idea what you're talking about! "
