[7.25/10] Tenet (2020)

Tenet (2020)

Quick Review: A time-twisting sci-fi mind-bender that trickily clashes the past, present, and future via loops, bridges, parallel universes, and time inversion, "Tenet" is as high-concept as it can get, and further enhanced by Nolan's astonishing vision, sleek looks, and thrilling action set pieces, featuring a wow 'inverted' technique, but what detracts its ingenuity is the excessive intricacy, no sense of fun, over usage of sound and score, and devoid-of-depth characters, despite the stellar cast involved.

I'm still excited to see it (whenever our darn theaters open again!) but I'll be prepared for a lack of fun. That's what made Inception so good.

Alex, it is undoubtedly a good film, but then again, it takes itself so seriously it becomes ludicrous at some point. Inception was way better in my book.
