Cool movie. Had no desire to think hard enough to figure out what was going on. This movie is spoiler proof.

Tenet was amazing! I thought I knew what to expect going in but I was completely blown away! When and how I expected things to be wasn’t. Instead, it was so much better!

I personally think this is one of the most misunderstood movies of all time. This film was expected to single handedly carry the theater industry on its back and raise it from the dead. It was expected to do this by resembling that of inception. This film is not inception, it is yet again an extremely original story with a mind bending scientific overlay. This film is not meant to be seen once and judged. This is art, it requires time (no pun intended) to process and ponder. Upon my third viewing finally realized how much I truly love this film. Yes the sound mixing is off. But the minor defect of the sound mixing pales into comparison ti the positives generated from the score, storyline, science, and characterization (yes characterization) of the movie. Come a few years from now, we will all be thanking tenet for being bold and willing to save theaters, revitalize true and original cinema, and make science nerds like me sit on the edge of our seats with a smile from ear to ear.

Very intriguing story, amazing score, most adept casting, and elegant set pieces. Only various flavoring from C. Nolan's previous films, but just enough to still stand on its own.

Christopher Nolan did not disappoint again. What a great movie! Makes you think, both during and especially after the movie, but you still enjoy the car chases and the crashes and the fights.

Our primitive minds were never going to be ready for this movie. Original concept, you’ll have to see it a couple time to grasp exactly how the plot structures. Christopher Nolan never disappoints.

This movie is fast paced, action packed, and very abstract. By the end of it, your brain will hurt, but in a good way. My husband and I were amazed by this movie. Definitely a must see! And we will be going to see it again to understand more!

Not one of Nolan’s best. Maybe the worst. But interesting enough to watch. Confusing with no help from the sound mix, but the theater sound system could be to blame for that. I may give it another chance when i can watch it at home.

Definitely a Christopher Nolan plot, a bit confusing, hard to understand the speech of characters over music and special effects. Accepting certain things without much explanation is a must, then story comes together piece by piece as the movie ends.

As an action film, it’s a good recommendation. As a Christopher Nolan movie, it’s one of his weakest

Even at their most bewildering, the raw imagination and distinctive imagery on display are always thrilling.

Tenet makes you feel floaty, mesmerized and, to an extent, soothed by its spectacle — but also so cloudy in the head that the only option is to relax and let it blow your mind around like a balloon, buffeted by seaside breezes and hot air.

Tenet is as generous as any Bond when it comes to a big-buck opening sequence and regularly-scheduled, muscular set pieces. If anything, it showers the viewer with too much, over-balancing a ticking-time-clock finale which is only saved by Elizabeth Debicki’s raw acting talent.
