Inception Movie Review
There are huge expectations surrounding Inception, Director Christopher Nolan’s first film since the blockbuster success of the Dark Knight. What may seem like wishful thinking to expect and to top the greatest comic book movie ever made and third highest grossing domestic release of all time, could Inception be his masterpiece?
Leonardo DiCaprio leads a kick ass cast that includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine and Ken Watanabe. Leo plays an extractor, sort of a cross between a spy and a thief. He’s hired to invade the dreams of corporate titans and pluck their most precious secrets from their subconscious.
But, now Leo and his team have been tasked with planting an idea in someone’s mind, an entirely different and far more dangerous procedure that could see them all trapped inside their victim’s mind. And, being an action thriller, it’s not really a spoiler to say things don’t go exactly according to plan.
Even though the film harkens back to movies like 2001, Heat and Matrix and James Bond, Inception is truly a one of a kind experience and an amazing accomplishment on the part of Nolan. He spent 10 years writing the screen play but his branian complex as the film is, Nolan never forgets to entertain telling an exciting story with cool characters we care about, even if they are the bad guys.
The dream world special effects are spell binding, the score and cinematography are great and the performances are topnotch across the board. In a summer chockfull of sequels, 3D remakes and shallow star vehicles, Inception comes along to remind us that genre movies don’t have to be dumb to be fun.
Move over Batman, Inception just became our new favorite Christopher Nolan film. IGN gives this one five out of five stars.
