Tenet - Prepare to Have Your Mind Blown

Check out Joel's review:

We very purposefully did not watch any previews for Tenet. As one of the only blockbusters coming out this summer, we knew we were going to see it, and we didn't want any of the spoilers that previews often give! If you can do yourself the same favor, do it. I just watched some previews and they are full of way too much information!

If you go in preview-free as we did, the movie immediately throws you into a brave new world. There is action upon action with explanations coming much later, if at all. It feels chaotic and crazy-making but also kind of like a ride on a really awesome roller coaster. The story is fascinating and will likely give you a headache trying to puzzle it all out. I honestly don't know what else to say in this review because I don't want to accidentally give anything away! 

If you enjoy action films that make you think, this one should be at the top of your list. There are plenty of explosions and bullets and fight choreography mixed in with mind-bending concepts that make you feel like you are always a step or two behind. If you enjoy it, this will be a movie you'll want to watch at least twice - I imagine a second viewing gives you an entirely different experience! Who knows, perhaps we'll report back, after all, our new Unlimited Passes mean we can go see this movie in the theater as many times as we want!
