Improves towards the ending.
The beginning throws a lot at the viewer without really giving you time to understand whats going on. Hell, took me minute in the theater to realize the trailers had stopped playing and the movie actually began.
There is a lot of exposition in the beginning, explaining the inverse time thing and talking about philosophical things which there is a lot of in this movie. A bit on the nose in my opinion and didn't really come as naturally as one might expect.
There is 0 character building as well. 1 hr after watching the movie and I have no clue what the main characters name was. I'm not sure if anyone ever even said his name.
The emotional bonding of the characters is also a bit lacking there are only 2 characters you really care about Pattinson and Washington and even them I didnt really care about. The emotional notes weren't really hit.
What makes this movie though are the cool action moments of the inverse time and its ramifications on things. Interesting yet at the same time quite confusing. The clues and tricks through out the movie with the time mechanic started paying off more towards the end of the movie when you actually got to see the effects of the time inverter.
At times a thought provoking film with some great action, yet nowhere near Nolans other masterpieces such as interstellar or inception as the movie itself felt more like an action romp even more so that batman for crying out loud. But the movies greatest fault has to be the total lack of emotional impact. During interstellar I bawled like a little girl yet during this didnt even feel like shedding a tear nor laughing. Lacks emotion is the problem, which leaves the movie feeling quite cold.
But is it worth watching? Certainly but it's not in any way the masterpiece some people are claiming it be, but a good action movie and this is coming from someone that has watched nearly all of nolans films and loved them each.
