    Lol. This was my thought exactly. Good movie overall but the plot was hard to follow. I understand what they were doing with time but I got lost in the beginning. I'll have to watch it again.

    Saw it today with a friend. Great build up but the last half hour gets confusing. Also, there's only so many scenes of soldiers running you can show before your action shots start looking the same.

    Intelligent plot AND I need a second watch. This plot and movie were made with the mind more than the heart, which is why I prefer his other movies. Also, as a long time science fiction book fan I'm kind of over time paradoxes.

    The subplot with the woman (bad guy's wife) didn't really go anywhere and seemed a bit forced in terms of its connection to a crucial plot element towards the end of the movie.

    Good movie (the action sequences are great) but it left me kinda cold in the end.

    I read this and still only understand 70 percent haha. I'd have to go see the movie again and read this explanation, especially what happens in the last 30 minutes, right before I go see it. looks like I'm gonna be stuck in a time loop myself

    I have watched the film three times and each time Iíve learned something new. Nolan and his team always work hard in order to bring an original story to the big screen. If you have seen the movie, you'll understand that itís all a temporal pincer movement like Ives stated prior to the climax.

    Tenet does a good job executing the plot beautifully. (In the special features in the blu-ray, the crew stated that after they had read the script, they were very confused as to how theyíll film it without confusing the viewer). Well, luckily, they got it right.

    I like the idea of reverse chronology (retrocausality) as a form of time travel. Itís based on theory and a few scientists conducted an experiment reversing the flow of time. In the film, itís called inversion. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/articl...um-experiment/

    In Tenet, Nolan hired the same physicist who was a consultant in Interstellar to come up with formulas and ideas for the filmís time travel concept. They didnít go into detail as to how time inversion was created but we can use our imagination (If thereís a sequel, I assume that theyíre explain this).

    Tenet is a spy movie, an original one at best. Genius level film making. Their objective is to prevent global destruction. The cast overall did an excellent job with their performances. I like the score and music, too (People, including myself, said that the music is louder than the dialogue and that itís hard to understand. The dialogue is fast and packed with important information which makes it hard to keep up. If you turn on the subtitles, youíll comprehend the film a lot better).

    Tenet evolves around the Sator Square which is a palindrome. Each one is important as the other as theyíre linked with the plot of the film.

    SATOR Ė Andre Sator
    APEPO Ė The Spanish artist/painting
    TENET Ė The organization
    OPERA Ė Opening scene/attack
    ROTAS Ė Construction company/Freeport

    Pay attention to the Sator Square. Itís forward and reverse. Good for them to use this in the film. Again, itís genius level film making.

    Rating: 5/5


    P.S. Itís possible that a sequel is in the works. Hopefully, itíll be longer and more complex.

    It's a great film. There may be a Tenet 2. Maybe. Denzel Jr. said in an interview "we will be doing this again, we'll see you in a couple of years."

    Now that I think about it, WB may say no because Tenet made $362 million due to the COVID.

    I thought it was visually very cool, but it's almost like the plot didn't matter. I didn't understand it, but it also didn't make me want to.

    Plus as Hal alluded to, time travel stuff in movies is nonsense, screenwriters just make up anything they want for any purpose.

    You need to watch the film again to understand it. I was like this when I first saw Tenet.
