I’ve sort of had this movie in my radar since hearing about it before TIFF a few years ago. Never had gone to TIFF of course but the movie always sort of lingered somewhere in my brain. Found out a while ago that it was streaming on Netflix and here we are 🙂
I remember hearing that this movie was being adapted from a manwha by the same title and thought it was cool that Paul Bettany was headlining the movie (he rarely gets a lead role, I find, which is strange because he’s a good actor). I had no idea what to watch on Netflix one time and ended up choosing this flick, lol.
Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
This is the first movie I’ve seen in theatres since the lockdown. It’s an interesting experience–you have to reserve, you choose your seats. We watched the movie in the mid-afternoon so there was barely anyone in the theatre–maybe 7 of us, tops. So yeah, we chose to watch Christopher Nolan’s latest flick.
An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
This was actually the first movie I watched this year, wheeeee! Until the day I watched it I was sort of on the fence whether or not to watch it; I had the book on my wish-to-read but I heard from many people that the movie was a simplistic adaptation that doesn’t do the book justice (well, ranging from simplistic to downright not good). Anyway, I went ahead and watched it, with the plan to read the book shortly afterwards.
April 6th, 1917. As a regiment assembles to wage war deep in enemy territory, two soldiers are assigned to race against time and deliver a message that will stop 1,600 men from walking straight into a deadly trap.
I was hearing a lot about this movie in the latter half of last year, especially after its (surprise?) win at the Golden Globes earlier this year. I heard this movie was interesting in the way it was filmed so I decided to keep it in my radar. Got around to watching it in the theatres back in January shortly after I returned from my trip.
