Five of our favourite ‘one-liners’ from Tenet

12 September 2020


Want to watch Tenet on the big screen? Experience ‘The Drive In’ movie theatre in London. Book your tickets today for a memorable experience.

A 2020 science fiction spy movie written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet, is the epic tale of a secret agent who embarks on a dangerous, time-bending mission to prevent the start of World War III. Armed with only one word, ‘Tenet’ and fighting for the survival of the entire world, an unnamed CIA agent known as The Protagonist must master the arm of ‘time inversion’ to encounter the upcoming threat.

Currently playing at London’s ‘The Drive In’ movie theatre, Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clemence Poesy, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh. It’s currently one of the most popular drive-in theatre movies, so here are our favourite ‘one-liners’ to build up excitement.

“Don’t try to understand it – feel It.”

Said by Laura (Clemency Poesy) to The Protagonist (John David Washington) in an emotive scene that’s played near the beginning of the movie and in the official trailer. There are no spoilers here, but this quote captures the whole essence of the movie which throws around unique, brain twisting concepts that will ignite your emotions.

“We live in a twilight world.”

This phrase crops up many times in Tenet, as a passcode that opens doors and gains trust (especially if you get the desired response, “and there’s no friends at dusk.”) It’s somewhat of a philosophical mantra for this epic movie which is set in a world of high-level espionage and secrets within secrets.

“Time isn’t the problem, getting out alive is the problem.”

When Neil says this to John David Washington’s character, he has a very bleak look on his face. Foreshadowing? No more spoilers, you’ll have to head to The Drive In movie theatre London to find out what this all means.

“You chose to die instead of giving up your colleagues.”

At the start of the movie, a man praises The Protagonist’s resolve saying, “You chose to die instead of giving up your colleagues.” The CIA agent then apparently passes a ‘test’ and is greeted with the words, ‘Welcome to the afterlife.’ This is a great introduction to John David Washington’s character during the opening minutes.

“How would you like to die?” – “Old”

When KB asks John David Washington how he would like to die, he replies ‘old’ in a bright moment of humour among the intensity. He wants to complete this mission and return back to normal life, once again showing his strength of character.
