Doctor Strange is one of those Marvel movies that never really worked for me.

The biggest reason I watch the Marvel movies are for their characters and stories, and this movie falls completely short on that aspect. The story line felt very basic and uninspired. The writing for the most part has no charm or wit. It is practically a Marvel tradition to have comedy, but that falls flat on virtually every occasion.

As for the characters, they are pretty weak. Benedict Cumberbatch is fine as Doctor Strange, but his character never felt strong enough to support an entire movie. He worked better in Infinity War because he was part of a team and had others he could work off. Rachel McAdams’ character is... a nurse, that’s honestly just her character. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen and Benedict Wong are fine in their roles, but I never truly felt a connection with their characters.

The biggest problem I have with the characters is that they have no chemistry with one another, so it becomes really difficult to care about any of them. The fight sequences and visual effects are undoubtedly amazing, but they are ultimately weighed down by a story that feels painstakingly basic.

Doctor Strange mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Doctor Strange experiments with the magical doorway in the Sanctum Sanctorum, he leaves it on a desert view and we cut to a shot panning across all the artifacts. At the very start of the shot on the right hand side of the screen is a crewmember standing in the shadows looking bored. Really blatant if you turn up the brightness, but easy enough to spot if you know what you're looking at. (00:56:00)

Question: When Strange is surgically removing the bullet from the patient's brain, why did he ask the one doctor to cover his wristwatch?

Answer: I took it to mean Dr. Strange could hear the watch ticking, and he wanted complete silence.


Answer: Perhaps to also protect the watch from getting blood-stained.


That's quite a blood spray you would need to reach him.


Chosen answer: The watch was reflecting light into his eyes.
