Tenet ★★★½

Really enjoyable sci-fi action that’s probably presented a whole lot more complicated than it needs to be. Christopher Nolan’s writing during “emotional” scenes always comes across like artificial intelligence trying to explain human feelings to me but his knack for inventive, mind-bending concepts and plots is always great.

The cast are a mixed bag of wooden and charming. The main hero and villain are pretty bland but the supporting characters around them bring a lot of life to proceedings. I THINK it’s a lot more confusing than it needs to be. There’s a lot of dialogue that’s hard to understand or make out which doesn’t help things. But there are some lines within the film to the effect of “don’t overthink it, just go with the flow” and that’s what I ended up doing with this and it was a fun ride! Great to be back in the cinema for the first time in months!
