Do you know the feeling when you want to watch a movie but spend too much of your precious time not knowing which to choose? Do you? Excellent! Then, you are at the right place!
For you, through the edition of the Seventh art, we search movies and TV shows. This time we present 'Tenet' (2020) by Christopher Nolan. Starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and Kenneth Branagh.
This newest Christopher's mind game movie follows a secret agent (we do not know his name initially; played by John David Washington) who embarks on a personal mission to prevent World War III. He got caught in an unsuccessful SWAT mission, after which he tries to commit suicide (so he can show his loyalty) by swallowing the fake suicide pill. The protagonist wakes up on the boat, and an unknown superior enlists him for a battle to save the world. It's one that will be fought with reverse shooting, time-traveling, and many more.
Time is a luxury that can be easily spent. Nolan shows us how someone can benefit from bending the rules. That traditionally leads to a battle between good and evil, but it is shown in an untraditional way. This fantastic sci-fi action doesn't forgive if you blink for too long. You have to be focused, or you may lose the plot.
Easily one of the best films of 2020 but it can kind of leave you with a headache for attempting to understand the storyline. Personally, that makes the film even better. Pressing pause and saying, 'Whaaaat?' doesn't happen that often. As it is displayed in the movie - '...Just feel it!'. For some time, we can only 'feel' the movie because we won't understand what's happening until the near end. That's not the problem because acting is on point - especially the main antagonist Sator (Kenneth), a stylish but brutal Russian millionaire willing to do anything to get what he wants. He's that villain who will end the world with his family as casualties.
Oh, yeah! Did I mention that the film lasts two and a half hours? It will keep you busy in your thoughts. The only problem is the fact that you need to prepare yourself for this movie. You must be present; it's not something that you watch to relax. It will get you angry and happy at the same time. Well, it is Christopher Nolan's movie. Feel intrigued?
A film to watch! Prepare your popcorn and a nice drink and enjoy for almost three hours. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon, to keep your mind in training for the coming week.
