Nolan is a storyteller of the purest form. He is allowed to go anywhere with his ideas. And in this case he takes it far and wide. To be honest, you won’t necessarily understand everything in this film, we didn’t, but it’s oke.
A secret agent embarks on a dangerous, time-bending mission to prevent the start of World War III.
Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight”, “Inception”, “Dunkirk ») is a visionary like no other. The scale of the film is impressive knowing that he doesn’t use green screens or too much CGI. The music is an important character in his film (and all his films) and plays a crucial role in pushing the viewer in the middle of the action. It is loud and present, like the whole picture.
This is a spy thriller that looks and feels at times like you’re watching a James Bond film until it doesn’t and becomes something completely different. But the greatness lies in the fact that you don’t need to understand the film to enjoy it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat while your brain is desperately trying to put the pieces together (this is a puzzle that needs multiple viewings).
The cast is the beating heart of the film, it is what’s makes this film believable. John David Washington is the star and his charismatic turn is quite impressive! Robert Pattinson is charming as hell and Elizabeth Debicki is fierce full. The cast is full of recognizable faces but we won’t spoil the fun.
