Doctor Strange leaves NY City across the George Washington Bridge going westbound towards New Jersey and is then seen driving a winding road along a cliff that ascends to his right and descends to his left. When the car spins out of control and leaves the road on the left side going down the cliff, the vehicle is shown at rest in the Hudson River north of the George Washington Bridge. If he went off the road to his left and into the Hudson River, the vehicle should have been shown south of the George Washington Bridge. See more »

The worst part of being a medically trained super-hero is everybody wants a free diagnosis.
Thankfully, the villain in this fantasy film is keeping their moles to themselves.
When an accident leaves his hands mangled, noted neurosurgeon Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) seeks out a powerful mystic (Tilda Swinton) in hopes of regaining mobility.
Instead, the conceited clinician is introduced to an ancient magic that imbues him with the ability to cast-spells, travel between realms and astral project.
Elsewhere, an embittered ex-student (Mads Mikkelsen) gathers the numinous articles needed to summon a dormant evil from the dark dimension and release it on New York.
Intriguing enough for amateurs and faithful enough for diehards, this mind-bending adaptation of Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme is a masterpiece. A visual feast paired with formidable actors and a whimsical script, this origin story is absolutely original.
Unfortunately, doctors who practice magic tend to stitch rabbits into their patients.
