Chris Stuckmann Reviews Tenet

Directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet, follows a secret agent known as the Protagonist, as he embarks on a mission to try and prevent the start of another world war. The film, who stars John David Washington as the Protagonist along with Robert Pattinson, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh, is set to release in theaters in the United States on September 3. YouTuber Chris Stuckmann gives insight to the long-awaited action thriller.

The spectacle is awe inspiring, visually it's miraculous, the things he’s able to accomplish in camera with very little visual effects is really impressive.

The movie is visually stunning, says Stuckmann; with characters moving backwards through time, characters moving forward through time and then other characters fighting while they are simultaneously moving in different directions through the timeline. The YouTuber notes this film follows a similar theme to most of Christopher Nolan movies that feature time manipulation as a center plot point: the concept of time inversion.

In the past his films have often featured nonlinear storylines. Here he takes this a step further by featuring objects and even people who are moving in different directions in spaces of time within one frame.

However, the main plotline of the film doesn’t become clear to the audience until almost midway into the movie, according to Stuckmann. The YouTuber describes the first hour of the movie as playing catch up and trying to figure out what this world is and who the hero is and what his place in the world is. It all seems unclear and quite confusing.

Despite the somewhat confusing plotline, the YouTuber found the film to be so visually stunning that it outweighed most of the flaws of Tenet.

This one though is held up so much by an incredible amount of visual spectacle that is constantly exciting and different and new. It’s another intriguing and fascinating film.

YouTuber Chris Stuckmann saw this film in theaters for the first time since the pandemic hit in mid-March. He rates and reviews new movies and TV shows on his channel weekly.
