Tenet

Tenet ★★★★½

While Tenet has more flaws than most Christopher Nolan films, I loved the ride this took us on, the film making and technical expertise that went into make this has me in awe. I can't wait to see how some of the scenes were put together.

The start of Tenet is a bit rough, you are assaulted with a huge amount of dialogue and exposition while the score often overpowers the voices you are trying to listen to and it is all very rushed.

However, after the film has explained to you about the use of time inversion and inverted weapons, it slows down and sets up a fantastic time based heist plot.

My other issue is the love intrest, it came from nowhere, at first she was part of the job and i took it that he wanted to avoid any collateral damage but then suddenly it seems he cares for her above anyone else.

The action in Tenet is what won it over for me, unlike anything I've ever seen on film before. Not your typical action but the mix of inverted time and reverse shots into normal shots are mind blowing.

The sound and the score is also amazing, its tense, its exciting and its loud.

This is one to see in theaters if it is safe to do so.
