Inception Review

image from Amazon


Premise:
Ever wonder what happens when you go to sleep in a dream, and then have a dream within a dream? Apparently, it's like Ocean's Eleven... but inside of a dream. And you can implant or extract secrets, thoughts, information, ideas, whatever if you're a professional like Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And if you've got Ellen Page's help, you're made.


Standouts:
The directing and imagination of this movie is off the charts. Fellow film-makers will be studying what Christopher Nolen and his crew did in this film for years to come. Given that everything Nolen seems to work on is better than his last work (Memento, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Inception), his next film will either seem like a big let down or change the world as we know it. Also, all of the actors involve due great work. The action scenes feel big, and important, and violent, and the dramatic moments feel heart-wrenching or touching.


My Highlights:
Zero gravity hotel wrestling match with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and a henchman, slow-mo van-dive, and Ellen Page's first dream-construction.


Overall Rating:
Something that anybody who watches movies should see. It can be confusing at times, and it does take some stretch of the believability as far as sci-fi movies go, but this movie is a winner. 5 *'s out of 5, or 10 *'s out of 10, and we don't give these out a lot.


When You Should See It:
As soon as possible. This feels like a movie that they'll keep off of TV for as long as possible so that when it does make it's network debut, it'll be a huge event. Don't sit around like a jerk while all your friends are talking about it, make an effort to see it.

  1. I definitely thought that the zero-gravity hotel scene was awesome. It made the coolest scene ever! I am going to make it a point to see this movie again. I rented Inception from Blockbuster and it was great! I know that right now, Blockbuster is running a promotion where you can receive unlimited rentals for free in Blockbuster stores through July 4th! When you rent a Blockbuster movie that’s priced at $2.99, you can rent another movie that is priced at $1.99 or less free for the first day! Whenever you are done watching the free movie, just return to a Blockbuster store as much as you want to get another free rental through July 4th! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I also know that if you switch to DISH, you can get 3 months of Blockbuster for free! You get movies like Letters to Juliet, Despicable Me, and thousands of others! Plus new releases are available 28 days before Netflix and Redbox! I suggest going to http://goo.gl/wuMrN to get all the information!
