Review: Well, ever since The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan movies have always piqued my interest. Tenet is no different, given that it took Christopher Nolan over a decade to put together central ideas for the movie. I thought John David Washington was brilliant in the TV show, Ballers and his performance in this movie was no different. Also, Robert Patterson will be suiting up as Batman for the next DC offering movie, The Batman, so it was good to see he hasn’t lost his touch. Aaron Taylor-Johnson can’t seem to keep out of army attire, but a suspenseful scene was triggered and executed brilliantly by him. Slight reference to climate change in the movie (although it could have been intentional) and if the ending is anything to go by, hopefully we will be expecting a sequel for a very interesting concept and idea.
