Goofs

(at around 6 mins) The MRI scan should not have been performed if there was a bullet in the brain, as the patient would have died due to the magnet and its strength. A CT scan would have sufficed.

Actually a CT would not show the brain stem (the area the bullet is located). So the only chance saving the patient's life (with time being of the essence) IS the MRI - hoping the bullet is not magnetic (for example titanium). Most modern bullets in production today are copper jacketed lead or just lead. While steel core copper jacketed bullets are available, they are uncommon. Copper and lead are both non-magnetic so this would not present a problem. See more »

Most amazing CGI ever
16 December 2020 | by chinandchinSee all my reviews

The Jungle book won the Oscar for best visual effect, without a doubt it was very great.. but everything was predictable, it was just perfectly done. However, what Doctor Strange did was more than perfectly done, it's about the most craziest imagination that anyone had ever done in movie industry up to date.
