Tenet (2020) – A Review

Tenet Poster

IMDB’s description:

Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.

First and foremost, Tenet is a spy thriller, with a scifi / time travel? element intermixed. The movie opens with The Protagonist, played very well by John David Washington, having a mission go bad. After being presumed dead, he is tasked to a secret society to help save the world from an apocalypse. Everyone in this movie assumes ‘nuclear apocalypse’, but we aren’t so lucky.

Netflix’s Space Force

IMDB’s sad description:

The people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services: The Space Force.

Ghost in the Shell

IMDB’s description

Hired as a mercenary unit, the former members of Japan’s elite Section 9 are faced with the sudden appearance of “Post-Human,” a being with tremendous intelligence and physical capabilities.

This is the new Ghost in the Shell series on Netflix. SAC stands for Stand Alone Complex, which is an alternate continuity to the main stream versions people might be familiar with from the original Anime movie or from the recent 2017 live action version. This continuity is different in that section 9 has apparently been disbanded, with most of its members working as mercenaries in various countries. A new global threat to humanity, called “Post-Humans” surfaces, and this brings the team back together under the Japanese government to recreate Section 9.
