Dom Cobb (DiCaprio) can go into your dreams. As a highly skilled thief, Cobb and his team enter the dreams of others as well as bringing them into their own dreams to extract information from them. However, this line of work is slowly tearing his life apart. Kept away from his family, and harboring a dark secret, he grasps the only redemption he has left: perform the most intense dream invasion possible: 5th level inception. This involves going into a dream within a dream and planting an idea in the subconsciousness of a person, in the hopes that they will accept it as their own upon waking. However, as he dives deeper and deeper into the dream layers, will Cobb be able to come back out? Or will he be consumed by the darkness hidden away in his deepest subconsciousness?
Before I say anything more, I'd just like to admit that action films are really not my thing. I just don't really like them. However, Inception was amazing. I saw it with a group of friends, and was blown away by the amazing plot, acting, and special effects that the film contained. DiCaprio and Page were both amazing, but DiCaprio really stole the show. The intensity of his performance was thrilling.
Although the plot of this movie sounds a bit complex, its really easy to pick up on. This is totally a group film, and I highly recommend checking it out. You won't be disappointed. There is something for everyone, with lots of action and suspense, drama, romance, and redemption. And as I've said before, the special effects are to die for!
