Tenet

Tenet

I honestly don’t know how to feel about Tenet. Finally there’s a film worth going to the cinema for, and a Nolan flick no less! But like a lot of the characters in the movie, I didn’t know what the hell was going on half the time.

The plot at first glance looked like it was going to be mind blowing (Imo it had the potential to be Inception but with time traveling). Halfway through the runtime I was baffled... and not in a good way. Don’t get me wrong, the production value and the choreography in some of the scenes are fantastic, and Robert Pattinson proves once again how charismatic and a good actor he can be. But I fear that this is one of those flicks that the moment you start tearing apart it will crumble to pieces. And I don’t know what the consensus is regarding the third act, but let me tell ya, it’s one of the weakest in Nolan’s filmography.

My experience is mostly positive and I’m glad I got to see it on the big screen cuz no matter its flaws, it can’t be denied that Tenet is first and foremost a cinematic experience. (Just don’t start thinking about the plot and you’ll be fine I guess).
