Your mind is the scene of the crime.
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.
"Inception," at its most basic, is two things. It is a heist film dressed in science fiction conventions; and it is a study of a man trying to free himself from a near-suffocating past. "Inception," at its more complex, is a cerebral pop-masterpiece. It is an enthralling combination of thought-provoking, layered story-telling and sumptuous aesthetics enhanced by near-flawless editing, sound design, effects, and musical score. Driven by a pitch-perfect cast and the confident directorial hand of Christopher Nolan, "Inception" is a brilliant and unrivaled piece of filmmaking.
The Wolf of Wall Street stars in Christopher Nolan's smart dreamy dream so much more than just a popcorn muchin' Hollywood blockbuster. Ocean waves. Sand castles. Mush. Godzilla's pal. JGL's natural born screen charisma. Falling house. Triple dream? Fast train. Top spin. Poor Lukas. Betting on a chance. Sir Michael Caine is the motherfucker. Ellen after Juno. Maze test. Complicated as fuck architectural work. You can share dreams? Grumpy strangers. Moving mirrors. Dreamin' like you're Biggie Smalls. Intense baby mama drama. The totem. The moment you realize Tom Hardy is the real deal. Why doesn't Dileep Rao act more? Cold water. Sgt. Barnes. Verbal Kint's best mate. Scarecrow. The crazy as fuck hunch that Christopher Nolan likes to use the…
With big films like this I tend to weigh different aspects of filmmaking and rate them separately. The final rating is then an average of all scores. I don't know why, but I feel I need to structure this review that way and try to give an accurate analysis. Whenever one of Nolan's films is criticized it tends to veer towards a right wrong discussion. Nolan has a huge fanbase and they are welcome to defend his films, but as a self proclaimed 'Nolan indifferent' I honestly have to say that I haven't enjoyed his latest efforts and often for the same reasons. I will try to write up how the final rating is compiled. My apologies in advance for…
Taking ideas from many sci-fi classics & seamlessly blending it with the ambience of James Bond thrillers, Inception is an original, inventive & ambitious sci-fi wonder from Christopher Nolan that manages to live up to its monumental hype & expectations amazingly well, and even today continues to be the subject of discussion amongst many movie-buffs, thanks to its multi-layered narration, surreal structure & ambiguous ending.
A contemporary sci-fi thriller set within the architecture of the mind, the story of Inception presents a future where technology exists to enter people's dreams & share them. The plot concerns Cobb; a highly skilled extractor notable for stealing ideas & confidential information from his target's subconscious, who assembles a team to carry out a near-impossible task for a wealthy businessman…
A week ago I wrote a particularly hateful piece on Christopher Nolan's latest abomination, The Dark Knight Rises. Since then I've been thinking hard, perhaps too hard, about why it is that I can't for the life of it enjoy the critically acclaimed “masterpiece” Inception. At the time it came out it was THE thing to talk about, nothing even came close to being as hot as the apparently intellectually stimulating blockbuster that is this movie. I had seen The Prestige, which I just loved, and the two Batman movies when I first saw it, so I was reasonably excited about it, especially because I'm a big fan of the Sci-Fi genre. The problems, however, are many-fold and it is…
I must have seen Inception a dozen times now, and on every single viewing it feels like the first time around. That surely testifies to the genuine brilliance pouring from Christopher Nolan's epic, which I first reviewed on release back in July 2010; that review, for the most part, stands below as I feel the same way about this movie as I did the first time I experienced it. Simply, this is exactly what a modern blockbuster should truly be - innovative, exciting, emotional and with something to say. The success of Nolan's film, and its subsequently populist seeping into pop culture, proves that with the right talent in front of and behind the camera you can create a truly…

Review In A Nutshell:
It still amazes me how I can still adore this to bits even if some aspects of the film have become slightly flawed. A film that manages to crawl under your skin and pull on every single nerve on your body; raising my heart rate at the most tense of action sequences and filling me with feelings of endearment during the most emotional of moments. It is rare for me to adore a film when themes are superficially explored, but Inception features such a complex and clever idea that the more I watch it, the more it grows in my mind like a cancer, that even after it ends, I would…
This is really a unique film. Does it really make sense? Pretty much, yeah. I think so. I liked it a lot more this time (had seen it once soon after it was released). Still, my one criticism is that its a little heavy on the action/violence/intensity. Really interesting though. The ending: so good.
A good movie but no better. The effects are spectacular at times. In my opinion too long, overly complex and a weak ending
I loved the OST. The ending is impacting, but unsatisfying.
One of the most over rated movies of the past decade. This movie is good, I'm not saying that it is bad, but I keep seeing people say this is the most complex movie of all time and the best movie of the decade, and also the ending is not fucking ambiguous, if you think the ending is ambiguous you are wrong, the top started to wobble and it didn't ever wobble in the rest of the movie, he also isnt wearing his wedding ring so don't give me any of that shit
You can call me a nolan fanboy but all of his movies are amazing. Inception seems to get better and better every time I see it. It is simply flawless. The effects, the soundtrack, the characters, the acting, the story, everything about this movie is perfect. Inception is one of the greatest movies ever! Few movies are this engaging the entire way through! If you haven't seen Inception, I can't recommend it enough!
It's like a well made, expensive B-movie trying to combine James Bond with...I don't know...something clever. :D
Another one of Chris Nolan's greats. Also one of my favorites. Tom Hardy is magnificent. Hans Zimmer with his overbearing but brilliant score. Joseph Gordon Levitt and the hotel scene. Incredible.
10/10: Director Christopher Nolan again delivered when you thought he has reached his max potential. Hmmmm...how to describe the movie? Ok, it's a mix of Mission Impossible, little bit of Matrix (on special effects), and of course - The Thirteenth Floor (1998).
