Saw it tonight and loved it. Still trying to figure it all out. I will go and see it a second time, maybe in IMAX, but I will definitely request the closed captioned device at my second viewing.

It is by far, the loudest movie I have ever seen. I've got an app on my phone that purports to measure db levels and it peaked at 109 during the last segment of the film.
When I saw it 1st at the AMC LieMAX, volume level was fine - don't recall it being too loud.

2nd time at Harkins real IMAX in Arizona? LOUD! Had to wear earplugs to make it tolerable!

Also, I must be the only person who didn't struggle to understand the dialogue! :D

Not to impressed with this one. Convoluted for a story that basically boils down to a
guy saving a woman from an abusive controlling husband. The reverse time stuff
just felt contrived to me and pretty well just got in the way of understanding the story. Some dialog was unintelligible from both an auditory POV and an explanatory one. Unintelligible mumbo jumbo for the most part.

Maybe, I will think better of this film on a second viewing but it certainly will not be in a theatre.

The film does play better 2nd time because it's less confusing.

Not that it's not still confusing in some ways, but it's less so.

It's best to view "Tenet" as a Bond movie with some wacky twists. At its core, though, the plot = straight Bond...

I saw it opening weekend and I enjoyed the film. It is crazy to follow and I would love to see it again too.
