Is "Doctor Strange" worth your time and money? Check out what the critics are saying about Marvel's latest movie:

"A kaleidoscope of weirdness and innovative visual effects successfully introduce the newest Marvel superhero in director/co-writer Scott Derrickson's brilliantly bizarre Doctor Strange." - USA Today.

"The key is an in-on-the-joke script, which Derrickson co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill, that ingeniously navigates major plot potholes even as it saddles its actors with ludicrous dialogue. But what actors!" - Variety.

"An engaging, smartly cast and sporadically eye-popping addition to the studio's bulging portfolio." - The Hollywood Reporter.

"If "Doctor Strange" can be dispiritingly safe, it can also be just as impressively bold - an hallucinogenic trip along a very familiar path, watching the film is like adding a large dose of LSD to your morning commute." - Indiwire.

"Doctor Strange is a movie very much built up of other movies yet it still manages to keep its own identity." - Digital Spy.

"The visuals are worth the price of admission, but this is as generic and by-the-numbers an origin story as the MCU has ever made. It's better than 'Green Lantern,' but it will remind you of 'Green Lantern'." - Forbes.

"It's a tremendously engaging and likeable superhero ride, in which the classiest of casts show they know exactly where to take it seriously - and where to inject the fun." - Guardian.

"Doctor Strange is thrilling in the way a lot of other Marvel movies are. But what makes it unique is that it's also heady in a way most Marvel movies don't dare to be." - Entertainment Weekly.

"Happily, it's [Marvel 's] most impressive visual film yet." - GQ Magazine.

"Director Scott Derrickson creates a cinematic experience straight from the comic books, an incredible feat that needs to be seen on the big screen." - Independent UK.

"Thankfully, amid all the film's wacky-trippy bending of space and time, [Cumberbatch] manages to steer an ideal path -- taking the role seriously but allowing himself to be flummoxed by it, wittily traumatised and taken off-guard." - Daily Telegraph.
