Tenet ★★½

I was more impressed by the filmmaking in Tenet than I was actually entertained by it as a film, if that makes sense. Once you comprehend the concept it's basically Nolan does Bond with some sci fi thrown in.

I thought it was almost arrogantly overlong and Nolan's penchant for writing characters who are difficult to like reared its ugly head again, I felt starved of compelling reasons to feel anything for anyone in it. The acting itself was fine and the action sequences were incredible, but once the credits rolled I couldn't help but feel a little hollow and I suppose, tragically, ambivalent.
