The best way I can describe this movie is “Primer with more explosions”.

Though I don't really like much about the movie, I respect the effects, the fight choreography and the attempt to make the script work.

It's an impressive work of entertainment - but it's not a movie for me.

Fast paced and entertaining. The plot is nonsense of course, but it's refreshing to go to the cinema and watch something that is at least thought provoking.

Surprisingly uninteresting. The sole female protagonist is reduced to a boring hausfrau, almost anything of value in the film's world is accomplished with guns or melee combat. There is also quite an obvious problem with the film's central conceit--why was the algorithm not destroyed rather than hidden by its inventor? Tenet is too clever for its own good, with too much hand-waving about the pseudo-metaphysics of time travel.

Caught an advanced screening of this tonight. It is a film packed with ideas and feels condensed rather than bloated at 2.5 hours. An entertaining ride, but not nearly Nolan's best.

At the end, Robert Pattinson spoiler

In all seriousness, this movie was annoying. Nolan needs to understand that complex mechanics don’t add much to the core drama of a story. The audience only needed evil guy abuses woman-end of the world scenario to get things going. The rest felt like homework. Too many characters and too many stop and explain scenes. Positives? John David Washington’s acting saves a thin character, the action is nice for the most part and some of the ideas are cool but that ain’t enough to recommend it.

The action set pieces were really cool, too bad I had no idea what was happening in them.

Nice to watch an original film in a market full of remakes and sequels. Not Nolan's best but he still manages to create an enthraling atmosphere with the sound design and music. Perhaps the only slight complaint would be the fast pacing in parts that made it seem slighty rushed.

Primer meets Bond.

At two and a half hours this film feels too short. There is barely any time to take in and digest what's going on. Definitely requires repeated viewings.

Tenet is... Inception meets Memento. There. Done. All kidding aside, what Nolan has made here is a time travel puzzle movie that won't surprise fans of things like Primer, Timecrimes or Moffat's Doctor Who too much, but that still puts incredible images on screen. The locations feel fresh and new, when things blow up it feels like it's all done in reality, and the way time-reversed elements interact with forward-moving elements could make you as giddy as those topsy-turvy sequences in Inception. But it's a very intellectual film, by which I mean I was never truly emotionally involved in events where the characters are MacGuffins looking for MacGuffins. In Nolan tradition, Nolan offers a lot of exposition to explain the rules of his world - though to be fair, a lot of it is still nonsense - dovetailing into pretentious philosophy when he feels like it. I was much more interested in John David Washington as a quick-witted superspy - his dialog made me smile and laugh - and would totally give the Broccolis permission to cast him as James Bond (Brit or not). R-Pat is fun as his sidekick too. Tenet is well made, to be sure, but almost everyone is a cipher, at some remove from the audience.

If there ever is a sequel, for some reason, it should be called Elevele.

Overly long and overly loud.

It's a pity "pretensious" is not a palindrome. Would be a better name than Tenet.
