OK so one thing that I can think we can all agree on is that we wouldn't have minded more inversion scenes; or at least, I wouldn't have.

I guess that this could also serve as a scratchpad for TENET 2 ideas :ninja:

Off the top of my head:

- character moving backwards to pretend to be inverted, when he/she isn't: maybe it could serve as a big mid-movie twist, somehow

- character 'calling' inverted weapons to his/her hand, like using the Force in Star Wars: I thought that this was going to happen because of the lab scene with Ms. Poesy, and the Protagonist 'calling' the gun to his hand in the hallway fight in TV spots, but it never happened

I can't think of any more for now.

I was hoping to see the plain crash happening also in reverse :lol: but it did not happen.

Oh yeah, me too.

Off-topic, but that reminds me of when they are driving away in the ambulance, you can see that they drive by their inversed clones running backwards with Kat on the stretcher. :lol:

Would have loved to see the inverted car chase fully from Sator's POV like we see it fully from JDW's POV once he's inverted. Imagine seeing the car chase from 3 POV's and discovering new stuff everytime: 1) JDW not inverted 2) Sator inverted 3) JDW inverted. My jaw dropped thinking we were going to see the whole chase again from inverted Sator's view

Yes that would have been helpful, but I can see two reasons why he didn't:

1) he wanted to trust the audience and leave it up to their imagination

2) or maybe even he didn't know how the hell that chase would work from Sator's perspective. :lol:

I'm pretty sure it was the first option you mentioned, if there is one man who finds a way to work it out it's Chris :lol:

i dont claim to know how inversion fully works in the film but i reckon you enter the turnstile, fully wet, then you get less wet as the rain leaves your body and goes up, then you go back into the turnstile dry, i think, dunno gotta see the movie.

Your idea is not quite right, but I'll let you find that out in the cinema for yourself.
Have fun and enjoy the movie mate :gonf:
