I keep forgetting this is not Batman. I remember after the Batman movie prologues we'd get a flood of posts at/after early screenings. Things are kind of at a crawl compared to those days

I hope to god I hear someone in Dallas confirm they saw it. Getting nervous about it not being attached :shifty:
I saw someone on Twitter mention the prologue and their profile says they’re from Dallas. I’m with you, bro. I’m getting nervous about Pointe Orlando.

The prologue is incredible. Intense, gripping, visceral, and the score is enormous.

That said: it's basically incomprehensible.

The dialogue isn't intelligible (it's Nolan, sooo), the causality of events are extremely hard to follow, and the "science fiction" element is, quite literally, blink and you'll miss it. It's the least "stand-alone" prologue yet.

At my screening, it worked on a sheer spectacle level enough the audience cheered when it ended. I'm very interested to see how the GA responds to it.

I agree that it's incomprehensible but - weirdly - I don't think that it works against the effect it wants to have on you. There's so much going on in it in such a condensed way, it's really an energy bomb. There's no time to breath, really, everything just moves forward as fast as hell, and it really got me when I was watching it (the bootleg). And I got tons of questions after seeing it, but... I guess that is kind of the point. I'm not sure how it will play out in the context of the film, but right now I really feel it as opposed to understanding it, if you see what I did there. And... I really enjoy looking at it and experiencing it over and over again. It's one of the more intense action scenes Nolan has directed, if not already in Top 3 for me - it's surreal how intense and fast-paced and truly gripping it is.

Phew! I found it buried under the hundreds of tweets of people geeking over the prologue that are pouring in.

It honestly makes the trailer look like kid's games. I hope everyone can see it in theaters. Don't watch any recorded copies if you can help it.
Can't agree more. Trailer doesn't do justice to the goodness that is Tenet.
