Goofs

The Eye of Agamotto was first seen as one of Odin's relics in Thor, yet it turns up in the Kamar Taj in this movie without any explanation. However, the same thing was previously said about the Infinity Gauntlet being seen in Odin's vault but then showing up in Thanos' possession without explanation. In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela goes down into the vault and states that Odin's Infinity Gauntlet is fake (thus revealing that Thanos always had the real one), and then says that most of the other relics are also fake. This could suggest that the Eye of Agamotto that was previously seen in the vault is one of the fakes that Hela was referring to, which means that the real one could have been with the Ancient One the whole time.

Great
24 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

I was not prepared for the visuals this movie offered. Nevertheless, I absorbed it in its full glory. It was easy to enjoy this movie not only because of its visuals but also because of the quirkiness and lovable characters. A must-watch!
