Inception is about a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through infiltrating dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an Extractor, a con-man who can enter peoples dreams and steal ideas/ secrets. Cobb is employed to do what is considered impossible: implanting an idea in someone's mind and making them believe that it is their own; Inception.

I am a big Christopher Nolan fan. I've been a fan since I saw Memento back in 2005. I was a kid back then so it took a while for me digest the movie. Nolan has this habit of questioning reality through his medium. He did it in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Memento, and now in Inception. Inception truly requires the viewers to immerse themselves into the movie. The film plays out on not just one level/ one reality, but many levels and realities. And believe it or not, after watching Avatar, I was damn sure that it would take another decade for me to be simply blow-away or become speech-less after watching a movie. I was damn sure that The Dark Knight was the pinnacle of Nolan's film-making. But I was proven-wrong, twice. From the acting to the special effects, every single things ties in perfectly. Everyone single scene builds up to this innate ending. It's an explosive journey of the mind, which ranges from mind-numbing to a big-bang-esque explosion of realization. The action scenes are on-par with the special effects. Leonardo, a big hand for Leonardo DiCaprio. He really had emotion drenched in every line. I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this film, I guess I'd have to go for a second round to sit down and pick out the flaws. I'm trying really hard not to fill this review with spoilers. But everyone who is anyone needs to go out and see this movie. Your own perception of reality with start to topple away once to get to watch the ending of Inception.

I would give this movie a hands down 10/10.

How did this not have a thread yet? Nolan is god as far as I'm concerned.

Inception is good but not on par with The Matrix. I wish it was.

I totally agree with this. A human being could only take so much mindfuck.
