We watched the movie Inception a while back so we decided to do a review. If you have watched this movie please tell us what you think.

Directed by: Christopher Nolan
Genre: Sic-Fi, Thriller, Action
Running Time: 148 minutes
MMPA rating: PG-13

The Good: Always keeps you edge of your seat, Great action(more on that later), Incredible psychological thriller, Best movie of the 2010 hands down. One of the best movies of all time.

Plot:Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) perform an illegal corporate espionage by entering the subconscious minds of their targets, using two-level "dream within a dream" strategies to "extract" valuable information. Each of the "extractors" carries a "totem", a personalized small object whose behavior is unpredictable to anyone except its owner, to determine whether they are in another person's dream. Cobb's totem is a top which perpetually spins in the dream state. Cobb struggles with memories of his dead wife, Mal (Marion Cotillard), who manifests within his dreams and tries to sabotage his efforts.
Cobb is approached by the wealthy Mr. Saito (Ken Watanabe), Cobb's last extraction target, asking him and his team to perform the act of "inception", planting an idea within the person's subconscious mind. Saito wishes to break up the vast energy conglomerate of his competitor, the ailing Maurice Fischer (Pete Postlethwaite), by planting this idea in his son Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy) who will inherit the empire when his father dies. Should Cobb succeed, Saito promises to use his influence to clear Cobb of the murder charges for his wife's death, allowing Cobb to re-enter the United States and reunite with his children. Cobb assembles his team: Eames (Tom Hardy), an identity forger; Yusuf (Dileep Rao), a chemist who concocts the powerful sedative needed to stabilize the layers of the shared dream; and Ariadne (Ellen Page), a young student architect tasked with designing the labyrinth of the dream landscapes. Saito insists on joining the team as an observer and to assure the job is completed. While planning the inception, Ariadne learns of the guilt Cobb struggles with from Mal's suicide and his separation from his children when he fled the country as a fugitive. Watch the movie to find out what happens next.

Closing comments- Inception is a must see movie it isn't just the best of the of 2010 it is one of the best movies of all time.


  1. I cannot wait to see this movie. I've heard so many good reviews on it, and this just confirms the fact that I must see this mind-bender of a movie. My dad said it kept him up for hours after he saw it.

  2. There are a lot of great aspects to the film “Inception” including the CGI when they were turning the buildings on its side, rearranging the streets, bridges etc. I imagine it would be very hard to act in an entirely green screen environment but I guess they were on the street here and they manipulated it later. I’m looking forward to watching “Inception” on HBO this Saturday at 8 PM when it airs. I’ll be out of town for a convention, but I can catch it on my iPhone because of my free DISH Network Sling adapter that I got with a rebate. It’s sweet because I don’t’ miss my shows and if I set a DVR recording I can still watch it later anywhere I am.

  3. @Bryon: I have had a DISH Network DVR for over 5 years it awesome I never miss anything and I have seen the Sling adapter but I don't have munch use for because I don't travel often. Watching Inception in full 1080p on a 52" screen is incredible.

  4. Inception is an interesting movie with strong story line, excellent direction and brilliant acting by the actors. They all are perfect in their role. This movie has action, thrill and drama. I’ll give this movie 10/10. This is a must watch movie.
