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

I’ve been impressed with this masterpiece every since it was released just a few years ago and now to experience it in awesome 4K !!
It’s just what you’d expect!
Beautiful transfer and HDR picture quality!
An excellent film to add to your collection especially if you’re using an OLED display!
If you like steelbooks this is a must. Fans will be satisfied.
This review is from Inception [SteelBook] [Blu-ray] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Worth an upgrade
I purchased this movie because I love it and, as with all Christopher Nolan movies, it's a native 4k vs an upscale. You can see this in the screenshot I added as it says Native 4K in the video section. I typically use this information when deciding to upgrade my movies to the 4k version as some upscale versions don't really look better than their 1080p counterparts.
This review is based on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc - this was played on an LG OLED 65" C6P using an OPPO 203 Ultra HD Player.
First off, I really do enjoy the movie, but I'll be using this space to focus on the 4K Upgrade.
I have to say.. I was a little bit disappointed. Inception is a pretty recent film (2010) and after seeing how great Dunkirk and Dark Knight looked on 4K, I was really excited to see how this one looked!
In some areas, there is a nice upgrade noticeable! Textures look really good, it's got a fine level of grain that isn't distracting.. but other shots seem to be soft.. lacking sharpness and detail. Many of the indoor scenes seem like a smaller upgrade from the 1080p while outdoor shots seem much better. Is it better than the Blu-Ray? Definitely.
If you don't have either? Buy the 4K for sure. It's a great movie and the best the movie has looked on home video.. but ultimately, its just not the most impressive thing. It looks good in parts but if I had to use one word to describe it, it would be "inconsistent". I'd give the video about a 4 out of 5. There are some points that look more like a 3-3.5 out of 5 but I didn't see any 4.5-5/5 moments like we saw very often in Dark Knight and Dunkirk.
Audio is in 5.1 DTS-HDMA (No dolby atmos on any of these Christopher Nolan 4K Sets); I didn't notice a ton of difference here from the original audio on the Blu-Ray.
Also included are the original Blu-Ray disc and Special Features disc. The 3 discs come in a 2-disc case, with 2 of them stacked. There's also a slipcover and digital copy included.
Even though I had seen Inception in the theater and watched it once at home, I recently decided to pick up the 4K version. This is a very complex, mind bending movie by master director Christopher Nolan. Every time that I watch it, a bit more of the plot gets revealed. It features a superb cast working their tails off to tell this, at times, convoluted tale. The 4K/HDR image is very good although there are certain scenes in which colors are to enhanced and can look over-saturated. Nolan has, as usual, chosen not to use the expansive Atmos or DTS:X sound modes but has, rather, stuck with a DTS-HD Master 5.1 track. Regardless, the sound is excellent. The package includes a second Blu-ray disc devoted exclusively to very interesting Special Features.
As much as I love Christopher Nolan’s films such as “The Prestige”, “Memento”, “Dunkirk”, “Interstellar” and “The Dark Knight Trilogy”, I don’t think he has created a finer and more well crafted film than “Inception”, a heist film set in the mind of the target. Plenty of unique fights with one of the most original stories in years, “Inception” is a must see for any self-respecting movie fan.
Inception still is one of my favourite films, with great writing by the Nolan brus and also great directing by Christopher himself. A wonderful cast with great performances by all the actors, especially Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, and Marion Cotillard. I truly recommend this film for the ages.
