Tenet | Ratings & Reviews

"Tenet is absolutely everything I wanted and needed and clearly a big welcome back to the movies."


"Tenet is self-indulgent and wildly in love with its own cleverness. While parts of it work extremely well, it just doesn't add up to a satisfying narrative."


"By the time it's done, you might not know what the hell's gone on, but it is exciting nevertheless. It is ferociously entertaining."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A concrete cornucopia of global chaos and threat, in which humanity's survival depends on the minor matter of reshaping time and space, "Tenet" looks well suited to an anxious age."


"The stakes have never been higher, but Tenet is exactly the film cinemas need right now."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The world is more than ready for a fabulous blockbuster... It's a real shame Tenet isn't it."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Nolan's latest may well be full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, or it may signify something imponderably resonant, and signify it forward, backward and inside out. Does your head hurt yet?"

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"It's a dream ride... for the most part, for anyone looking for glitzy escapism, and who wouldn't include themselves in that demographic right now."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Seek it out, if only to marvel at the entertainingly inane glory of what we once had and are in danger of never having again."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"The real joy of the film, nonetheless, is the sheer spectacle."

The TimesThe Times

"Altogether, it makes for a chilly, cerebral film - easy to admire, especially since it's so rich in audacity and originality, but almost impossible to love, lacking as it is in a certain humanity."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"If Nolan has out-Nolaned himself, it's in the action set-pieces which, despite being of head-scrambling technical intricacy, are sharper than Occam's razor and carried off with astonishing economy."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"No doubt avid students of the Nolan formula will get months of entertainment out of repeated viewings, but for me it was oddly tantalizing -- full of good things but ultimately frustrating."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"After five months stuck in front of the small screen, maybe being a little overwhelmed is no bad thing. But it's hard to escape the sense that less might have been more."
