Tenet ★★★

Honestly this movie would have been better as a video game, the first hour is easily the strongest part of the movie and feels like a bunch of Hitman setpieces strung together by scraps of a plot anyway. John David Washington and Robert Pattinson are great, their performances carry most of the movie but the inversion bullshit is virtually unsalvageable as is, if Nolan had more confidence as a film maker and just let the viewer roll with it maybe it would have worked. Instead there are whole 10 and 20 minute segments in the back half where I just zoned out. I dunno I honestly think this would have been way better as a 90 minute James Bond-esque spy thriller starring Washington and Pattinson. Can't believe people risked getting Covid to see this in theaters!
