Trivia

The first building-bending battle between Kaecilius and The Ancient One was filmed on the road Great Scotland Yard in Central London. Opposite the end of the street (but not visible during the scene) is the Sherlock Holmes pub on Northumberland Street. See more »

Goofs

When Dr Strange is choosing a watch from his drawer of watches, all of his watches are shown as being on watch-winders, but the winders are all rotating about the horizontal plane (in order to fit nicely into the drawer, no doubt). Since an automatic watch is wound by the movement of a weight, a winder work by turning the watch either about the vertical plane or something near vertical, leading to the weight's moving under the force of gravity. There is no way on Earth that a horizontally mounted winder could provide sufficient wind to a watch to keep it powered-up. See more »

Quotes

The Ancient One: Master Kaecilius. That ritual will bring you only sorrow.

A waste of time, money and effort
3 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Basically, a bad movie that was a waste of time on everyone's part. The visual effects were one of the few strengths. Whatever strengths exist, they're not enough to justify the money spent in movie making and not worth the price of a ticket. The only reason I didn't leave mid movie is my wife fell asleep and I didn't want to wake her. Mr. Cumberbash with an American accent demonstrates his abilities but why? That would be like having Tilda Swinton with a cue ball. Oh wait ... Even Stan Lee's cameo was a question mark. As I proceed with this, it's just to fill the required number of lines in the review. How many different ways can one state that this was a bad movie and all this a waste of time?
