Another mindblowing film from Nolan that REQUIRES multiple viewings. Lacks the same emotional connection and character depth as Inception, Dark Knight and Interstellar, but its well-crafted plot and perfect pacing makes Tenet one of the greatest spy movies.

Yay, another complex film just for the purpose of being complex. Take note: complex, not deep. Of course the fans of this will say you didn't understand it if you don't like it.

Don't get me wrong, I dig Nolan and I want to watch this, but a part of his fandom is cancer.

Solid and good movie. It's not as good as Inception but still fun and action packed. Can't wait for the Blue-Ray disc to be released. I feel multiple watches would improve the story and understanding it.

Man, is Nolan on a losing streak. Bad babbling efforts one after another. Put anyone else's name on his recent duds and release them shot for shot and they would have been trashed by the critics. This reminds me of M Night Shyamalan's skid down the drain.

And then you woke up. How about the latest Marvel film?

Textbook proof that Nolanzombies praise anything he does even the disappointing garbage.

I wouldn't say that's so. Many people are saying it's disappointing- but that doesn't translate to "bad". I can admit that it's flawed and maybe a little rushed but it's damn well made and the concepts are very imaginative. Nolan is one of my favourite directors and sure his films aren't always perfect (except Memento, Memento is perfect) but nearly all of them engage and excite me on some level! This is no exception!

You're talking to the biggest Marvel-zombie on this site. Delusional enough to vote for Iron Man 2 and Last Stand over TDK and TDKR.

You should stop using sock accounts, Yellowjacket.

A more sterile 007 by way of Inception. Has great pacing, but at the price of characterization due to the lean story.

Tenet is just so bad. I'm kind of stunned at how bad it turned out. So pretentious and so full of itself that it's nonsensical.

I think people would have like this movie more if it was marketed as Christopher Nolan making a spy movie. I thought the movie was easy to follow after the first act. But the sound mixing was a bit of a problem in the Cinemark XD theater I watched it in, mostly during dialogue heavy scenes.

One of the worst movies of the year in a year that will forever be known as THE YEAR OF CRAP FILMS. That says a lot.

Did Nolan kill cinema with his Tenent flop? Honestly, he pooped the bed so bad that all studios are now pulling movies and won't release anything before 2021. If Tenent wasn't crap, maybe word of mouth would have gotten butts in newly opened seats. Don't blame covid fear, blame a BAD movie.

It's a rare misstep for Nolan. One of the only of his movies that thinks it's smarter than it is, loses sight of it's pretentious concepts. But more than anything it lacks any kind of character or emotion. It's a robotic, cold, dead script played out amongst amazing innovative action set pieces.
