Goofs

In the OR, there are multiple errors. Sterile technique is not observed as neither the C-arm doing x-rays nor the microscope are draped with a sterile cover. Also Images in the c-arm for x-ray are static on the right monitor and can only show a single image, showing the bullet being removed in real time would only be shown on the left side of the screen. Take it from an experienced OR x-ray technologist. See more »

A fantastic, excellent and glamorous movie with everything. A class act
20 October 2016 | by ibynadatSee all my reviews

Without giving away too much, Benedict Cumberbatch just kills it. He is one class actor. Cumberbatch rocks as Strange and pulls it off with ease. The impressions his portrayal gives us is that he was born to play the role of the ex-neurosurgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. Such is the talent of the lead cast, that it represents just how good the movie was overall. Every normal movie watcher will love the action, humour, adventure and fantasy throughout the film.

A solid new character introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with loads of potential. Cumberbatch solidifies and anchors his role in the MCU as Stephen Strange in a similar fashion to RDJ doing so with Tony Stark.

A must watch! Enjoy!
