Tedious, convoluted, simply doesn't make sense.
Had to fast forward to get through it!
The "Protagonist" (John David Washington) has a hard act to follow with Denzel Washington being his father in real life. But there's only so much you can do with a really bad movie.

If you enjoyed Inception, you'll love it.

It's clever. More clever than many and yet not as much as Nolan's previous movies. Convoluted without being equally as interesting or gratifying in understanding it. Still liked it even with it's hype that is didn't quite live up to. Manage your own expectations and you'll enjoy it for the wild spy romp it is.

Is this simply a set-up for a gaming franchise? It sure isn't anything I would want to see again. Seems to be a Roadrunner/Coyote take-off. And most cartoons are short - how many chase scenes and blow-ups before boredom sets in?

Blu-Ray quality is top-notch. John Washington is superb in this suspenseful and fast-paced brain-teaser. There are so many intricate detailed variables in this film. You must closely monitor (re-watch) every scene, dialog, and recollections of each character for maximum plot comprehension. I liked the sound mixing.

As per the reviews on Netflix...most people can’t figure out this movie. It definitely REQUIRES your concentration. By the time Tenent sees himself in both time frames @ the heist if you haven’t figured it out then it will be incomprehensible. 4 stars only for the poor audio.

It's like watching an action movie that has dementia.

DID YOU LIKE INCEPTI- "THEN YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN THIS!"...
Hard to shout over your own text, but deserved here; a blatant "re-telling" with a mechanics twist and cast that may have done something else (obviously Brannagh and Pattinson have credits).
Bay-esque is the best I can say about it; particularly the driving stunts, if indeed stunt and not CGI work. Nolan needs a new angle and hopefully this breaks all character ties so everyone involved can move on; MAYBE Pattinson took the role to pick Nolan's brain about his upcoming Batman effort, But a laboured story poured into TWO HOURS AND A HALF, with a dual layer break?
INSTEAD, check out THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT (1 or 2, your choice), SOURCE CODE, with Gyllenhaal, DEJA VU, with Washington and Patton, for the central gear works, and for the "Whodunit" angle, go back to THE USUAL SUSPECTS.

Agreed this is impossible to follow almost incoherent. I did wonder why the villain in the story kept taking his pulse rate like an obsession? Perhaps time travel is bad for the heart? or perhaps maybe the result of some medication he was given?

Don't waste your time. The story is impossible to follow unless you wrote the script. Too many twists without logic. Action scenes were just ok. Totally unbelievable story.
