This Morning's Eamonn Holmes was quick to sympathise, writing: "Nearly three hours you'll never get back. #Tenet."

One follower remarked: "Did the same a few weeks ago convincing the wife and kids it was well worth watching. Gave in after an hour, despite me trying to explain what was going on, I had no idea." Another stated: "Yes! So confusing. I couldn't finish it and went to bed."

However, some fans suggested watching the film again in order to understand it better. "Benefits from a second watch, and maybe watch a YouTube explainer too," one follower offered, while another said: "Watch it again and you'll understand."
