PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
While on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts.
Scott Derrickson admitted that the MCU films dedicate little time to developing antagonists, so he just hoped to show Kaecilius's point of view, describing the character as a "villain of ideas with watertight logic," like John Doe from Se7en (1995).
The Ancient One:
Master Kaecilius. That ritual will bring you only sorrow.
At least twice in the film Strange refers to Pangborn's spinal cord injury as having occurred between "C7" and C8" - meaning the 7th and 8th cervical vertebrae. But humans only have 7 cervical vertebrae. An injury in this location would actually be between C7 and T1 (the first thoracic vertebra). There is absolutely no way Strange - a brilliant surgeon with a photographic memory - could get this wrong.
SPOILER: There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: Baron Mordo meets Pangborn and takes away his healing magic.
