This review may contain spoilers.
By the second half it becomes interesting. But I only find it interesting because the concept kicks in.
But the concept is really silly and the dialogue that sets its up is silly—if you can even hear it over the constant Nolan score.
All of Nolan’s worst habits come front and centre. He does not know how to write human dialogue, he focuses his movie around something so silly as the male ego, and he uses women in the grossest way yet (and somehow I bet you he believes he is writing these women with depth and strength). I don’t need your plot Nolan to centre around the ego of an abuser.
There are moments where I really enjoy myself, the mechanics are really fun, but they do not become part of the plot until after you have set up so many unlovable characters.
