In the end Tenet really should have been six 70 minute episodes of a TV serial. You just can't do what the writers/director/producers wanted to do in even the extended length of this film. A great shot, but it's also mostly, sadly, a miss
If I was being charitable I'd say that every brilliant film-maker is allowed the occasional miss.
If I was being cynical I'd say that Nolan has run out of ideas.
(I found Interstellar to be mind-blowingly boring, but his next movie was the brilliant Dunkirk)
I'll be waiting with baited breath to find out if he can recover from this with his next film.
Knew before watching to bring fully-charged brain after 10 hours sleep. (yes, this should be great!)
Really? Haven't heard anyone online (anywhere) that could describe the storyline beyond the vague impressions.
Enough. This should have been my domain, but the more I concentrated the more the hypnotic flash dance took over and the story got lost. Is this now, then, before, the future? What's the point? What is the entertainment value?
So... impress your friends by saying "yep, totally got it and think it's fantastic".
2nd... 3rd... 4th viewing? Not likely, but then again I hate getting kicked to the curve so maybe a ''angry viewing''.
However, after an initial viewing I felt that I couldn't relax into this movie and just enjoy it.
I accepted the concept of "inversion" and found the overall premise fascinating - and I found the majority of the acting superb. Pattinson and Washington and many others were charismatic and thoroughly entertaining.
The inclusion of well-known actors like Branagh unfortunately muddied the character depiction for me, for although he is an excellent actor I was too aware of his recent role as the highly admirable (& decent) commanding officer in "Dunkirk."
- I don't know whether Amazon's delivery system was at fault or not but the sound was very poor for this movie, it alternated between mumbling, muffled low-pitched conversation and relentless high energy "action" music which I constantly had to adjust for. (After testing other movies on Amazon afterwards I'd say there was definitely a fault with the movie's sound).
This is definitely an epic movie but it is probably geared towards a younger audience who are into online role-playing with ad-libbed, off-the-cuff strategies (ie. they don't care if their actions get them 'killed' because they can just respawn).
I was also constantly trying to analyse whether the backwards/forwards action "made sense" according to this movie's logic.
I would like to see Tenet again in a few month's to see it with a fresh perspective but for now I would stick with "over-anticipated."
I paid the $24 to buy as it was marketed as a sequel to Inception, which I liked a lot.
Was expecting something sci-fi ish with a clever twist, good acting, script, great visuals etc.
Tenet is NONE OF THESE THINGS.
I have watched 2/3 of Tenet and will not watch anymore.
It is a extreme violent action movie with scenes of torture, violence to defenceless women, etc
There is a light veneer of time travel, but really it get a little mention ... couple scenes with film running backwards (like I can do that on my iPhone) .... otherwise nothing more.
If you want a violent action movie you may well like it.
If you want something interesting, entertaining with a clever twist do NOT try Tenet.
The only reason I watched it to the end was that I had invested so much time already and the hope that there was some sort epiphany at the finish that made some sort of sense of this load of rubbish.
I hope the stars, including Elizabeth Debrecki, don’t regret appearing in this futuristic nonsense and they were paid handsomely for appearing in such drivel.

Some Actors deserve an extra thank you; Kenneth Branagh is the embodiment of the psychology of the role he is playing and if he does not win an Oscar then I will be extremely surprised and disgusted. John David Washington was, in my opinion, the character who by his excellence in acting drew the viewer through this incredible tale. In fact, he made all the difference and is another who deserves an Oscar. Any review would be for nothing without a strong mention for Elizabeth Debicki who provided an exceptionally balanced performance that acted as a reference point to all that was happening. Another Oscar I hope.
Tenet is a film I shall watch a few more times in the future, or past, and I am certain that I will learn each time.
Thank you Christopher Nolan, you are a genious.
I do not wish to say much more about this movie, all I can say it was a disappointment. The Blu-Ray picture was rather good, let down by the soundtrack.
Leider war die Erfahrung sehr enttäuschen.
>> Sound: Die Dialoge sind ohne Regelung der Lautstärke kaum zu verstehen, Musik und Soundeffekte sind unerträglich laut. Dieser "Effekt" hat mir schon einige Filme versaut, aber Tenet toppt alle. Statt entspannt den Film anzusehen war ich permanent damit beschäftigt die Lautstärke zu regulieren und auf ein erträglich Maß zu reduzieren.
Da das Problem auch in meinem Freundeskreis zumeist auf Unverständnis sorgt, habe ich mal ein paar Artikel dazu gelesen. Soweit ich es verstehe ist das Absicht und soll den Gesamteindruck unterstützen. Für mich funktioniert das in kleinster Weise, das mag eventuell im Kino Spaß machen, zuhause finde ich es nur nervend.
>> Inhalt: Ich empfinde den Plot als verwirrend und langweilig. Das verwirrend würde ich nicht als negativ empfinden, wenn es denn interessant umgesetzt wäre. Dem ist leider nicht so….Gefühlte 80% des Films sind eher langweilig und durchschnittlich. Ein zähes Hinziehen zu dem Höhepunkt am Schluss, an dem dann endlich die Zeitthematik etwas anschaulicher umgesetzt wird. Da ich wegen der oben genannten Probleme eh schon ausgestiegen war, hat das für mich den Film nicht wirklich gerettet.
Aktuelle Filme auf Blueray lass ich dann erst mal. Vielleicht gibt es irgendwann mal eine Lösung für die Soundproblematik. Ich möchte einfach einen Film einlegen, anschauen und die Dialoge verstehen. Ich habe keinen Bock erst mal eine halbe Stunde an meiner Soundbar oder dem Fernseher selber den richtigen Ton einzustellen ( so es denn möglich ist).
British-born director Christopher Nolan clearly has a ‘thing’ about time: the effects it can have on people’s conscious and unconscious mind; how time affects reality; how time is relative. It is a thread running through so many of his films, from ‘Memento’(2000), a Neo-Noir which deals with murder and amnesia; through the thriller ‘Insomnia’(2002), set in Alaskan summer and it’s eternal daylight; Sci-fi drama ‘Inception’(2010) where dreams and reality are manipulated; ‘Interstellar’(2014) dealing with the effects of space travel on time. Even ‘Dunkirk’(2017) uses different time frames running parallel, to cover the action of May-June 1940.
In his latest block-buster, which weighs in at a whopping 2 hours 30 minutes, Nolan again makes time the centre-piece of his plot. It is another Sci-Fi thriller, and again is written by Nolan himself, using ideas he has been working on, literally, for years. But if you struggled with the notions of time in the notoriously complex but scientifically accurate ‘Interstellar’, or the notoriously controversial “Dunkirk’, you are in for a torrid time here. Because the timelines here are running forward and backwards, sometimes separately, sometimes concurrently, and the complexity is such, you probably need to watch this film with a calculator in your hand!
Whilst I followed both the 2 earlier films pretty well, at first viewing, here, I was totally flummoxed quite early on. Eventually, I just decided to sit back and enjoy the ride. And the ride is pretty good.
The film is firstly, VERY handsomely filmed, with magnificent scope and sweep. We get a world tour of good-looking places, all beautifully photographed. We also get some seriously brilliant set-pieces. I would recommend especially a spectacular scene with a cargo plane, and another with a pair of F50s, the world’s fastest sail race boats, racing in the Solent (standing in for the Amalfi coast!); and also a bungee jump to make the eyes water. There are several equally spectacular car chases, armed excursions of various sorts, and fights.
Former American footballer and actor John David Washington, who came to prominence in the mordantly funny ‘BlacKkKlansman’(2018) makes an attractive, muscular and effective hero, surrounded by several excellent British stars, including a viscerally unpleasant Kenneth Branagh, a very couth Michael Caine, and a nicely understated Robert Pattinson, making up for his serious thespian own-goal, in ‘The Lighthouse’(2019).
So, did I like ‘Tenet’? Yes-ish. It probably needs at least another viewing, but at first sight, I don’t rate it as highly as several of Nolan’s other works. I thought it was slightly over-clever, at the cost of understanding, and also a bit chilly and un-involving. Moreover, I was also left asking ‘Why?’, rather loudly. So, just 4 big, brutal Stars.
As for the movie itself, it is a masterpiece of storytelling and action. A callback to the times of old where style, scenery and scale were hallmarks in spy thriller escapades. The casting was superb and daring, each captivating in their roles. The score perhaps the only disappointment, not being bad on any level and thoroughly enjoyable but left me intrigued to wonder what Zimmerman would have come up with to fit the movie's theme much like the excellent Inception score.
For most the story will require more than one playthrough to truly grasp the intricacies expertly woven from start to end.
Where it inevitably and often unfavorably will be compared to Nolan's previous works by those far less appreciative of the excellent dynamics, don't let that or them put you off in any way. Each of Nolan's personal works explores the wonder of the nature of time itself and he is careful not to retread or revisit paths he has walked before. Tenet is no exception but rather stands as a far more direct venture into his passion and fascination with time.
Ironically the movies only Achilles heel was it's timing as this year's upheaval placed undue expectations on it and also never allowed it the be promoted as it deserved.
Hopefully now it is available for direct release it will find appreciation in viewers although they will likely never again get the opportunity to be impacted by the intended iMAX presentation it was made for.
This has easily become one of the best films I have seen in recent times. And hopes it will welcomed by many more, for "posterity".
