Synopsis


Inception
Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage. They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A brain trip, and a reason why it's not in 3D

    The movie is about a bunch of people who operate inside the dreams of other people. It's a bizarre premise, but it is self-consistent. There ae many layers of dreams that play off each other in the big dream heist at he end. I blelive HBO aired a 3D version. Some off the scenes would have looked cool in 3D like the city folding on itself, butt here's one key effect, and it's a decent-sized detail in the story, they'd have to tret right, or else it it would shatter the illusion. It's the 2D infinite staircase. In 2D it looks lke people running up forever, and in a different perspective the illusion's true nature is shown. The fact that you have it in monocular vision goes well with the playing of tricks in the dream world, and a stereoscopic imae would have ruined that scene unless you had false 2D which would have made it look phony right away. As for the ending, it makes you think about what is truly real, and do you really care whether something is real or a dream?

    Inception might be the best movie I've ever seen

    All I can say is the writers, director and cast must have had a *LOT* of fun with Inception. Some of the creativity was really out there and just so much fun to enjoy. Very few movies are worth a 5 out of 5 or even a 4 (in my book). But Inception was easily worth a 5+, it was fantastic! So many movies waste time with filler stuff that has little or no bearing on the movie. Inception didn't waste a single minute, needing every one of it's carefully crafted 148 minutes. Inception started off a little slower as it needed to build its back story. Basically a little better than an average movie to start, but not an overwhelming beginning. But as it went on the pace picked up and the movie slowly built to a fantastic and fast paced crescendo. I'm not normally a DiCaprio fan, but he, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe and the others all helped make up a great all star cast. I'm disappointed that the Oscar voters didn't get this movie. It was so complicated, but that's what made it so mind blowingly good! I'm afraid they didn't follow it because of its complexities. I was lucky enough to see Inception in the theater and I'm so glad I did. I'd have hated to have had any "home" interruptions or distractions while I was watching it. A job well done to everyone involved!

    DREAMS AND SCHEMES

    Posted
    ROBOB

    In the world of Disney and fantasyland, “A dream is a wish the heart makes”. In the movie INCEPTION, a dream is a living landscape with people, buildings and all the other amenities that are found in the real world. Leonardo DiCaprio leads a team of specialists whose main objective and occupation, is, for a price, to invade dreams in order to change, sway or impress the outcome they desire upon the unsuspecting target. This is first achieved through manipulation and deception, and finally inducing a drug that places the unaware target in a sleep/dream state. The team is then connected to the target through a special device. Trouble rears its head when DeCaprio and the team in order to salvage a failed mission, implement another level of the dream state; in other words a dream within a dream. This is a dangerous and complicated maneuver, and could have life threatening repercussions. To lose ones sense of reality, which is something that haunts DiCaprio throughout the movie, is ever present. INCEPTION is 2 ½ hours long, and requires the viewer’s undivided attention to detail and the plot. There may be times when even those who view this movie, may not know whether the characters are in a dream or waking state. The special effects are spectacular, and the performances by DiCaprio and supporting cast are top notch. INCEPTION is a fine movie well worth the watch.

    Pretty cool and clever, though never masterful

    Another short and sweet review, so here we go:) Inception is pretty darn good. Nolan has a great sense of storytelling and it shows. That said, that doesnt always mean the story that hes tellin is completely interesting. But in Inception, it is for the most part...kinda. The trailers and tv spots make this out to be a heavy action movie that revolves around some sort of Matrix-type mind-tapping scenario. Well thats not the case, its more of a melo-drama backed up by a crime-drama that uses the mind-tapping scenario to tell its story. That doesnt mean its bad at all, it just means the movie never reached its full potential. So basically, when the movies not wandering into unentersting plot points, the stuff thats goin on with our heroes is pretty darn sweet, especially a gravity-shifting showdown in a hotel hallway. I just really wish the movie had more imagination, given the fact that the whole thing is about dreams. But oh well, im not cpmlainin...that much. As for the characters, its what you expect in a Nolan film: the main character having the only half-way interesting story behind them, and all the others dont even seem human because they all seem so propper, but who cares, when the movie kicks into high gear, it'll hold your attention.

    Saw this at the movies and didn't care for it. It wore me out trying to follow all the movie's "rules." Like "The Matrix" they try to tell you how everything works as you watch the movie. The only difference, is they do this so much, that it became tiring to try to follow. I wasn't prepared at the theater and "zoned" it all out. At home, on the other hand, I sat and watched the DVD. Gave it all of my attention and discovered that there is no special meaning, no major twists that I had to catch, nothing that I had to watch out for. No tricks. Just watch it without trying to look so deeply into it and you'll enjoy it. I guess that i tried to over think it after hearing so much about people not getting it. It could have been simplified some, but now, I'm a fan. It is a great movie and great to watch at home on DVD.

    Great Film with a Great Soundtrack

    Inception represents the ultimate dream child of Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer. There are many aspects of this movie that make it one of my favorites - warranting an upgrade from the standard Blu-Ray to the 4K Blu-Ray. While the 4K visual experience is outstanding, the soundtrack by Zimmer draws me back in over and over. I often play the incredible 5.1 soundtrack mix found on the supplemental Blu-Ray disc as it gives an amazing auditory experience. The basic underlying story of Inception is often overlooked due to its other multifaceted aspects. The idea that the main character needs to change their mind and become their own person is a universal message applicable to a wide audience. May we all make such a decision without necessitating a brain hack!

    This movie is in my top ten favorite movie list. Why? First the film's cast which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, and Joseph Gordob-Levitt. Gave great performance and have good chemistry together. What truly made this film great ,IMO, are the CGI, Music, and the ending. The CGI and sets look visually stunning. To building design to the state of Limbo. All help to envision the world Nolan try to build. The score by Hans Zimmer is superb. When a chase is happening the music that acompany with it has your heart racing. Or when a emotional scene is playing, the music makes your heart heavy. Finally a ending that divided people. Whether it was a dream or not, it had us talking about the film long after it finished. Making us want to take a second viewing. (Possibly more)

    Inception is a movie you should experience

    Inception is a trippy, fun movie that you will glad you watched it. This movie comes from the mind of Christopher Nolan. This movie features actors - Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, and many other great actors. Inception is directed, written, and produced by Christopher Nolan. Christopher Nolan is best known for his Batman Trilogy, but this movie was made between "The Dark Knight" and "Dark Knight Rises" and shows his brilliance. If you liked movies like The 12 Monkeys or Fight Club then you will like this movie. The movie plays with ideas of what reality is. Is reality what we see when we are awake or is it what we see when we are asleep? The movie features ideas like dreams within dreams, and like I said its trippy. But I loved this movie and its the perfect movie to own on DVD, because you will want to watch this movie more than once. I enjoyed this movie and I would definitely recommend it. Thank you for reading my review.
