- Amir Steklov
Directed by: Christopher Nolan.
I enjoyed the time reversals and the twisted plot. But I think the film is lacking characters with strong motivations. I couldn't care less for the protagonist. I also didn't like the score and sound design.
After a 2nd watch: I understood a few missing links but the problems of story telling are still there. I am afraid more screenings will lead to diminishing returns in understanding, so I might just give up.
I still think the sequence of action scenes in the middle when the movie reverses is an amazing cinematic accomplishment (from the first air plane until the reverse air plane and vault fight)
And i believe that if the last fighting scene had been good, the film would have been an excellent one.
Verdict: 3 / 5 ★ - Fun but not much to it under the surface.
