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.

I think this film hugely benefits from being something at least a little different from most Marvel films. It's different in the focus that is on magic and sorcery and all of that. However, it's still quite familiar in its arc and predictable beats. The cast is fine, although nothing ever really great. Swinton manages to rise above her material, as predicted that she would. Rachel McAdams also adds a lot of heart to her character, who has a lot of screen time but who is really likable. The action sequences here are really impressive and they make a lot of the film worth it. As it is, it's not bad at all and it's enjoyable, just nothing too memorable.
