Tenet

Action Sci-Fi Thriller


 

A man learns how to manipulate the flow of time and uses this knowledge to save the world from certain destruction.

Watching "Tenet" is like being stuck in a conversation with someone who knows a lot of really big words, but doesn't actually know what they mean. The fight sequences and the use of unusual production techniques are to be admired, but what's the point if the entire film ends up a convoluted mess that doesn't make sense? The cast does an admirable job in their roles, but they can't save this film from being weighed down by badly placed lore dumps and a refusal to make the narrative enjoyable or accessible to the average layperson. Invert.
