Bloody, gruesome, occasionally gory make this film for teens +.
Do not be deceived by the main review. Doctor Strange is an amazing, effect-filled Marvel adventure, true. Although, this one comes with considerably more grit than previous hero flicks. With the opening scene containing a bloodless beheading, things get worse from there. An incredibly brutal car crash sends the main character flying and eventually lands in a seemingly excruciating position. A brief shot shows his mangled face covered with blood. However, the film then makes the viewer watch him being operated on, with metal rods sticking into his hand through to the bone, and a mask on his blood soaked face. Several more surgery scenes throughout the film, as Strange is fatally wounded by magical means more than once. Also, a main character suffers an incredible fall from a building an crashes through glass before hitting the ground, near death. She is then rushed to the hospital by Strange, and some gruesome shots of her blood covered face. She eventually dies. Strange is stabbed at one point, and stumbles around dripping blood. One surgery includes what looks like muscles being removed from Doctor Strange's hand. Also, lots of martial arts/magical combat throughout. As for Sex, just some light romance, and a mention of "sleeping together." Some swearing, done only occasionally by Doctor Strange, including: "s--t," "bulls--t," "a--hole," and "a--." In one scene beer in drank to excess. Overall, Doctor Strange is an amazing film with dazzling effects that your brave teens will love!
