Right angle Duct

When the plumber installed the duct for a new furnace, he came off of the plenum, in the attic, at a 90 degree for 2 feet to the main trunk and then another 90 degree turn. Both of these are square corners and not rounded. How much will this restrict the air flow? Would it be a problem?

it may work, but may not get the best air flow since air don't like rough sharp turns.
