Dom Cobb, a skilled thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious.
Christopher Nolan has certainly proved himself to be a genius in filmmaking and directing after his major success with Inception and also Batman Begins and The Dark Night. It is a breath of fresh air to see that Hollywood is capable of producing masterpieces, though very few there are. I feel that the importance of film is being lost in the digital age. With 3D and CGI playing vital roles in pleasing audiences, the hard work of writing, scripting and acting is becoming less important in making a successful film - but Inception ressurects these key aspects. Leonardo DiCaprio is in my opinion one of the best actors of his time, and proves this through his portrayal of Cobb. Alongside him is climbing actress Ellen Page who excels her previous acting roles while Marion Cotillard is an exceptional choice for the role of Cobb's trapped wife. Inception is intellectually powerful in its complicated plot but also emotionally powerful as we learn about Cobb's character beneath his work as an extractor. The simple idea of understanding a dream escalates, creating a mind blowing sequence of events. A second viewing may be necessary as the first may leave you perplexed, but beneath its complicated science is very simply a well written film with talented actors playing the lead roles. It is quite possibly the best film I have ever seen, but hopefully is an inspiration to upcoming directors and the first of many more masterpieces to come.
This is my favorite movie of all time. It grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go until the ride ends. The cast did a great job, the plot was incredible, the special effects mind bending. Another win for uber-filmmaker Christopher Nolan.The story line wasn't as confusing as most people will tell you though, except durring the first ten minutes. This is also a test of wether or not you have any imagination. If you like it, congrats, you have imagination. And vice versa. The bottom line; this is an amazing thriller, toping the matrix in every way.
If there was ever a time when defining the plot of a movie was difficult, it would be now. Written, co-produced AND directed by the amazingly talented Christopher Nolan ( who also brought us The Dark Knight and Memento ), Inception is a film that literally causes you to sit there glued to your seat, eyes riveted to the screen, heart pumping with excitement and your mind thinking non-stop.
The idea behind Inception may seem simple, but the storyline is far more complex and beyond incredible. It's the idea that people are able to tap into others' dreams and either steal an idea from them or plant one. This whole concept evolves into a mind-blowing film. First of all, the visuals in this film are absolutely gorgeous. Everything from the fighting scenes to the dialogue is perfect. Add that with the incredible soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and you are in for a roller-coaster of a movie, with twists that will leave you breathless.
Great cast, great story, great film.
For people who love movies that are very creative, about dreams, and make you use your brain to peice things together this is the movie for you.
Inception is an excellent movie. At first you are wondering whats going on but soon all is slowly but surely explained and showed. Their are amazing twists and turns that make you wonder whats going to happen next to the charachters and their minds. The actors were truly great and definitly helped the movie. To me the movie flowed like it was supposed to and was not left wanting more except for the ending which made you choose their fate and what you think happened and that made it interesting but also wonder what truly honestly happened to Cobb and his life. Was he still dreaming? Was it real? Did the spinner stop spinning? It was up to ones self to decide. It also makes me wonder if there will be a second inception. Maybe, maybe not. eather was Inception was a awesome and must see movie.
This movie was brilliant. It was like a house. It started off with a foundation of cement...a brilliant actor. Then it built upon itself with brilliant writing. Then when mixed together it created a visual and mental portrait that satisfied yet flustered the mind of the viewer. However, in every house there is always something unfinished or that needs work and the writers understood this by leaving a subtle yet brilliant cliff hanger. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to see what Leonardo does next.
