Regarded as one of the greatest cinematic mind-benders of now and all-time, Christopher's Nolan's "Inception" is certainly something visually and ambitiously marvelous. However, I don't entirely think it's as flawless as most people seem to believe, nor do I think it really adds up to anything more spectacular than a somewhat average blockbuster that runs with several interesting ideas.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays a character Dom Cobb is the best at what he does: he enters peoples minds in the dream state and steals the valuable assets hidden inside the mind. This has made him incredibly popular in corporate espionage, but at the expense of having an semblance of a normal life. Now Cobb is given one last job - not to steal, but plant an idea, if he succeeds, he just may escape the game forever, but first he must succeed. The visual effect's in this film was so mind blowing that it reminds me of another classic film called 2001 a space odyssey, the score is epic and the directing is fantastic.

A Movie. A Myth. A Masterpiece.

This is Nolan's best. I had always said Dark Knight was his best film, but this movie proved me wrong. This movie is damn near flawless. And looking at the premise of it all, it looks impossible that a movie like this would be perfect, but somehow it is.
I would like to preface this by saying I love DiCaprio, and I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But my 2 favorite performances in this movie come from Tom Hardy at number 2, and Ellen Page as my favorite.
Aside from the ending, this movie will have you believing that she is the main character if you think about it. It can easily be misconstrued that this movie is about her unlocking not only the secrets of Inception, but the secrets of Cobb (DiCaprio) as well. Obviously the ending indicates this is not true as it's all …

Ok, here goes my review for Inception. It's a complicated, complicated movie but i will go over the plot and why i think it's so good. Christopher Nolan directed it and the guy just does not seem to make a bad movie. It's just hit after hit. Here we have Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio as the main character. He practices a type of crime called extraction, which is going inside someone's mind and stealing information or secrets. He doesn't do this alone, he has a team which includes characters played by Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Their jobs are even more complicated then it might seem because they want to get in and out of the persons mind without the person noticing that they were there. Also, there is a complication of something from Dom's past, about his ex-wife, who …
A vision, a dream and a journey of art film making

How many enigmatic films Nolan has presented. I count from insomnia, prestige, and now inception. The fact is clear from Nolan. People please use your brains. Inception is a dream movie. Well it might seem simple. But Nolan converts a simple dream movie into a challenging riveting action film, with lots of thinking. Not only is the story, but the characters are also compelling. DiCaprio plays Cobb a specialist who can protect ideas generated in someone’s mind. Wait a minute. Is it very complex? Yes. But we do not have to worry. Nolan explains everything going in the movie. So there are no awe ooh moments in the film. DiCaprio fits in the job. There is a team he leads and now it is not a simple job, but its inception. It is planting an idea in someone’s mind. How they are …

In the end Dominic tests reality with his spinning top, but is distracted by his children before seeing the the top fall indicating that the whole thing may still be a dream. I will say that this is the sort of movie that's tailor made to produce sequels because the very last scene leaves everything wide open to continue exploring whether or not Cobb is actually back in reality. Nolan has indeed incepted our minds.

Hello, everybody. I tried watching INCEPTION on DVD and could not make heads or tails of it so by the time about fifteen minutes of gibberish had transpired, I found something else to do. The way the first fifteen minutes of gibberish were presented, the movie reminded me of someone explaining a Philip K. Dick novel.
