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.
One of my all time favorites.
I enjoyed watching this film and would recommend other to give it a try , (as I am) but this movie, although enjoyable to watch due to the better than average acting fails to add anything new to its storyline that is all too familiar to these types of movies.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
The film monologue opens with what is the most resilient of parasites. It's an idea! Once implanted in the mind it becomes infectious over and over again. The plot of the film is about a man Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) who is a thief of the subconscious and invades dreams of wealthy business tycoons to steal ideas. Dom has a flaw though, he can't escape his own dream versions with his late wife. She pops up in the most unbeknownst places in his mind and subjects his extraction to fail. This film is full of twists and turns and absolutely amazing cinematography. An exceptional film with a brilliant supporting cast to go along for the ride, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Lukas Haas. Truly a superb, indifferent film that makes our dreams and reality cross in unexpected ways. Makes yout look at our subconscious very differently. 8 out of 10
Leonardo DiCaprio is the best actor. He can't do no wrong. The whole cast is superb. Every time I watch it, I find something new, I didn't see before. It's just mind blowing.
Inception is about a group of criminals who uses dreams to implant an idea into someone, or steal it. Saito, the CEO of a major company, gives Cobb, the main character, a mission. The mission is to go into the son of the CEO of another big company, who's giving the company to him cause dying, and implant the idea of doing something different. This will make Saitos company the biggest in the world. But when Cobb enters the dreams, his consciousness follows with him. This movie isn't really about dreams, or the mission. The movie is about Cobb trying to escape his fears and his guilt. That when he accidentally implanted the idea of not being in reality into his wife, all of the guilt came with it. That's why his children keeps following him into the dreams, cause it his guilt following him everywhere. This movie has a lot of ideas, the totem, inception and the dream thing all together. All of them I found pretty interesting. Even though the acting was great and the script was great too, some of the acting and dialougue was not as good.
I think this movie is a 10/10 for Directing, acting, writing, cinematography and everything else. I believe good movies should transcend the human experience and show them something that has never been done before. I think out of all of Christopher Nolan's movies, this movie is the one that shows you something that hasn't been done before and I loved every single part of it. I have watched this movie at least 20 times and I can still watch it 50 more times. As an actor, filmmaker and writer myself, I can relate to the amount of time I think it took Christopher Nolan to write this and put it on the page and make it smart and compelling and innovative. I have been working on a similar idea and I can tell from experience that it takes a long time to bring such project to life. Leonardo Dicaprio's acting in this alongside Marion Cotillard and Cillian Murphy and Michael Caine and Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon Levitt and Tom Hardy is insanely beautiful. The way the story also unfolds is also very compelling. I had to personally watch this 3 times just to fully get what is going on. Overall I give this movie a 10/10.
