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.
If we hadn't spent $30 for 2 tickets (Imax), would have walked out. The only reason gave it 2 stars rather than 1 is that some movie goers don't care about any plot but love special effects - which this has plenty. If you go, take ear plugs like they give out at rock concerts.
There are three types of movie-watchers: passive, engaged, and intelligently engaged. Passive people will watch Die Another Day and like it just as much as the Bourne Identity. Engaged people THINK they know what they’re talking about, and generally love movies that are edgy in plot and execution but conventional enough to understand, like Fight Club or Inception (both good movies). Intelligently engaged people will appreciate the complexity of Inception, but also recognize it’s a little sloppy, self-serious, over drawn, and empty. They recognize its audacity, but don’t pretend like it is Kubrick or Paul Thomas Anderson. Suffice it to say, most people on this wall fall into the engaged category, and try to pretend like Inception is a ‘masterpiece’ and that they know everything about movies. They don’t. Inception is clever, but it doesn’t rank anything above respectable.
Inception is easily the best movie of the year. This movie will blow you away mentally and physically. Inception contains an outstanding original story, that twists and turns throughtout the movie leaving you speachless. The Special Effects are incredible and so are the characters and plot. Inception was so entertainning and so well done, I had trouble accepting that I wasn't dreaming myself watching it! With a great cast and extremely intresting story and concept, Inception will have you begging for more when the credits roll!
this movie inspired me to write a review as sooon as i got out the theater i ame home and did this.
the movie literally had me jumping wanting to see what was gonna happen next. it was so exciting. i love ellen page and leo together.
the ending was just a stab in the heart you have to watch it !
This film written and directed by Christopher Nolan is a sci-fi masterpiece that is said to have taken him 10 years to write in the matter that he saw it was exactly the way he wanted it to be. I am so glad that he took that much time because it gave him the chance to engage the audience in a wholly original movie that never bores us for a moment.
Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb who is an extractor of things that people hold sacred from their subconscious. He would get hired from corporations to extract ideas or formulas that would be beneficial to his employer and hurt the person that the idea is being extracted from. Then a wealthy business man offers him a way out of his job by ding a final job that does not include extracting an idea but to implant one into a persons subconscious as if it was their own idea.
I don't want to go into any more detail because if I do you still wouldn't understand the ending or even how it got to that point. This movie is damn near impossible to spoil because it would only want to make those interested in seeing the film even more interested in seeing the film. I enjoyed every minute of the film because it has a wonderfully written story and a strong cast of actors that slide into their roles impeccably well that it doesn't even seem like they are acting. It starts off fast paced and never slows down until the end credits roll. Even though I saw the setup for a basic chase sequence that could be filmed into any action film I was still held onto the edge of my seat because of the fact that the film allows you to care what happens to the character. The special effects are well done and if you try to bring reason to what the trailers show you, you won't be able to make sense of things until you watch this great film.
I think that this is the best film that I have seen this year and may be the best film that I have seen all year. I loved every minute of it and think that this is the summer blockbuster that people have been waiting for and I wouldn't waste an other minute without watching this film. Go and experience a mind bending sci-fi action film that is completely original and would not disappoint fans of watching films that actually make you think about while watching and definitely after the movie ends.
I am hard pressed to even describe this experience. Let's just put The Matrix and Brainstorm in a blender, add a pinch of A Beautiful Mind & Alice in Wonderland and just a dash of Avitar. Push the chop button, pour over some unspecial effects and served room temp with a side of popcorn.
Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½2 hrs 28 minutes out of my life I won't get back. I went to bed hoping to dream that I was only dreaming. Where's my dradle?
