Inception (2010)

Cinema Sweetheart's Rating: 7 out of 10
Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring:Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levit, Ellen Page
Rated: PG-13
Genre:Action, Crime, Thriller, Sci-Fi
Run Time:148 minutes

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!


  1. Ellen Page! I'm in. She's wonderful.

  2. You give this movie very high praises yet only a 7 out of 10 rating. I'm wondering why it dropped down a few points.
    I'm not disagreeing though, I think I'm probably the only person on the planet who didn't like this movie. I would probably give it 5 out of 10.

  3. Robby,

    I thought it was very enjoyable for an action movie, however, I really don't care for those kinds of films. The high praise was because it was a good movie; the 7 out of 10 was because there were parts that I found tedious because of the genre ;)

  4. Good to know. I appreciate the quality of the film, and I liked the concept, but I just thought it dragged on a lot. I was pretty bored through most of the film. If you want to see another Christopher Nolan film that has similar concepts of what is real or not, check out Memento. It is definitely a superior film.
