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!

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.

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.

Upon 2nd viewing became my favorite Christopher Nolan film. So many things I missed the 1st viewing became apparent in the 2nd and then everything hit me at once. This is incredibly well written and a cinematic masterpiece. I saw this in IMAX instead of dolby. Great thought provoking film. Loved it! its insanely mind bending i warn you

You really need to pay attention to understand what is going on and chances are you will still be lost at some point. It all ties together in the end so if you remember the earlier things you will enjoy it.

The story is very intellectual. Mix in a little bit a time travel paradox and some good action. A good movie.

I loved this movie. The cast was great and the action was some of the best that I've ever seen in the movie. My only complaint is that at times you couldn't hear what people were saying due to the loud background music.

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.

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.
