Film Review: Inception

After seeing trailers, clips and reading reviews, I had prepared to watch a film that was really confusing and with a lot of twists.

Imagine my surprise when I was watching it and discovered that it was a cleverly constructed film, that was about using the dream world, and dreams within dreams, within dreams. And so on.

Christopher Nolan, best known at the moment for directing Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the third film The Dark Knight Rises, takes us on a monumentally visually stunning journey. Using mastery of the realm of special effects, this film makes you believe that inception is actually possible.

Fleshing out this film with intriguing characters out with this idea, are the top actors, headed by the 'leader' of the group, Leonardo DiCaprio, and supporting him are Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine. All are fine actors and they all play their parts well.

This is a stunning film and I won't spoil it at all. Its a very clever thriller, and the score, composed by Hans Zimmer, is quite something too.

  1. Strangely enough, these three quotes are the from same movie that has just been reviewed.

    “Yusuf: [after surviving a roll with the van] Did you see that? [realizes that everyone else in the van is asleep]”

    “Ariadne: [contemplating her totem] An elegant solution for keeping track of reality.”

    “Arthur: And I will lead them on a merry chase.”
