The New York Times’ Jessica Kiang’s gave mixed reactions. She noted, “Indeed, take away the time-bending gimmick, and “Tenet” is a series of timidly generic set pieces: heists, car chases, bomb disposals, more heists. But then, the lie of Nolan’s career has been that he makes the traditionally teenage-boy-aimed blockbuster smarter and more adult, when what he really does is ennoble the teenage boy fixations many of us adults still cherish, creating vast, sizzling conceptual landscapes in which all anyone really does is crack safes and blow stuff up.”

The Guardian critic Catherine Shoard wrote, “Tenet is not a movie it’s worth the nervous braving a trip to the big screen to see, no matter how safe it is,”. “I’m not even sure that, in five years’ time, it’d be worth staying up to catch on telly. To say so is sad, perhaps heretical. But for audiences to abandon their living rooms in the long term, the first carrot had better not leave a bad taste.”The New York Times’ Jessica Kiang’s gave mixed reactions.

IndieWire critic Mike McCahill opined, “What kind of picture is it? Big, certainly: IMAX-scaled, and a hefty 150 minutes even after a visibly ruthless edit,”. “It’s clever, too — yes, the palindromic title has some narrative correlation — albeit in an exhausting, rather joyless way. As second comings go, ‘Tenet’ is like witnessing a Sermon on the Mount preached by a savior who speaks exclusively in dour, drawn-out riddles. Any awe is flattened by follow-up questions.”

The Wrap critic Nicholas Barber wrote, ”… there is one solid reason why ‘Tenet’ could make a profit,”. “Even if not many people pay to see it, some of those people will pay to see it again and again and again in the hope that, eventually, they will be able to work out what on earth is going on.”

The Metro settles on a more measured four-star writeup, with Nola Ojumo saying the film delivers “a fast-paced action thriller” from a smart premise, and reserving particular praise for the performances of John David Washington and Robert Pattinson. The i also strikes a mixed tone, with Joseph Walsh writing that the film is “blissfully ambitious” but adding that “[Nolan’s] methodical approach can feel cold”
.On the consumer side, UK stalwart film mag Empire also has gone four-stars, praising the viewing experience. “By the time it’s done, you might not know what the hell’s gone on, but it is exciting nevertheless,” writes Alex Godfrey. In Little White Lies, Adam Woodward writes “[Tenet] is a natural successor to Inception – for better and for worse.”
The BBC’s Will Gompertz also lands on four stars, writing that “it won’t leave you shaken, but your mind will be stirred,” but also saying it “has to be worth a trip to the cinema.” A separate review on BBC Culture awards three stars, with critic Nicholas Barber writing that ultimately the film “collapses under the weight of all the plot strands and concepts stuffed into it.”
