| Film Synopsis |

Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.

| Video |

'TENET' delivers a knockout 4K UHD Blu-Ray presentation in its original 2.20:1 aspect ratio that often opens up to 1.78:1 in an attempt to re-create the IMAX experience.​ The amount of detail in the picture is absolutely beautiful. The black levels are strong. Colors appear natural and sharp.

| Audio |

This 4K UHD Blu-Ray release boasts a DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track stands up as one of the best this year. The only problem was that some of the dialog was hard to hear due to the over paring score. Surround speakers place you right in the action.  There is also an insane amount of low-end bass from the subwoofer.  TOP NOTCH!

| Overall Reaction |

The 4K UHD disc is simply stunning, a class-leading 5.1 mix that makes this film one of the best 4K's this year.  Worth noting to check out the excellent Making of documentary. Even if the movie isn't Nolan's finest it's definitely a beautiful presentation.
