Trivia

Goofs

Strange is at home, looking for help on a video chat, then throws a tantrum by throwing everything on the table to the floor. Christine enters with food, and the reverse shot shows some of the items back on the table although he had not picked anything up. He then picks up his laptop and puts it back on the table, but the amount of papers on the floor is not right - all the things that are now on the table (except laptop) should still be on the floor, not just three papers.

One of Marvel's best
14 February 2017 | by maxnexus-97144See all my reviews

This movie is fantastic. I truly enjoyed watching it!

Unlike most other movies of Marvel franchise, there is a heavy emphasis on character development. This keeps audience glued to the story on a deep cellular level.

The movie is littered with spiritual themes which adds further depth to this already amazing story.

Those who like movies and TV series of medical genre are in for a treat. As the title suggests the story involves a doctor.

I also like how the story blends in and moves forward, in prefect synchronization. Particularly given the complexity of the plot. Quite a tribute to the three screenwriters.

Great movie, can't wait for the next one!
