I'll almost certainly be viewing this one again in the near future. I can't say for sure how much of it makes sense, or what Kenneth Branagh is supposed to be saying half the time, but there's something genius at work in "Tenet" whether it always works or not.

It has finally happened. Christopher Nolan has pushed me, a longtime admirer and irate apologist, over the edge. This madman cannot expect me to develop superhuman hearing just to discern his incredibly complicated, armchair temporal physics theory exposition over Ludwig Göransson's droning base. That's 80% of the film! Top marks for spectacle, medium marks for suaveness, low marks for pacing. Nolan's films usually go at a breakneck pace, but with a new editor working on this one I think Chris' worst impulses were indulged a bit too much. And who keeps letting Kenneth Branagh do accents?!

Christopher Nolan gives another blockbuster that’s not lacking in ambition. Even if it’s sometimes incomprehensible explaining the mechanics of what I think passes for Nolan’s version of time travel. It’s an interesting take that sounds baffling but it lends to some great action scenes. Particularly a plane crash sequence and a finale that plays with Nolan’s love for set-pieces that require multiple components.
John David Washington is good as the protagonist (literally that’s his name). Robert Pattinson is pretty suave as his cool sidekick with connections. Kenneth Branagh is menacing as a villainous Russian that has insight into the future.
The setup for “Tenet” requires explanations that would spoil plot twists. So par for the course of a Nolan joint. I’d certainly …
