Tenet ★★

I wanted to like this more than I did. A superb cast and some truly astounding visuals made this movie all that much harder to dislike.

But, I didn't enjoy it. The opening scene hits the ground for what I thought was going to be an exciting 150 minutes. By the end of that runtime I was wishing it had ended sooner. A convoluted plot that throws twist after twist in for seemingly no other reason than that it can was a huge distraction. I shouldn't find myself thinking "why can't this just get to the point?" Aside from the plot, I want to punch whoever decided to turn the dialogue down lower the score or sound effects.

Style over substance can work, it just doesn't here.
