Tenet

This movie was a refreshing addition to the action / thriller genre.  Rather than just having a run-of-the-mill bank robbery or stop-the-master-villain movie they came up with a fresh angle.  That said, it is not always an easy watch.  I love movies that are complicated and require thought.  If I am being honest I didn’t always understand everything about the sci-fi aspect of the film, but it really didn’t matter.  I got the gist of it and could follow along (towards the end of the movie it makes more sense).  It kind of felt like a Bond movie without having to be limited to the expectations that come with the Bond character.  The lead was excellent, although he could be a bit wooden when delivering some of his more conversational lines.
