Inception

Oscar-nominated for Best Picture, this unnerving sci-fi thriller stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb, who earns a tidy sum infiltrating the dreams of corporate titans to steal their most closely held secrets. Tapped by a rich industrialist (Ken Watanabe) for a job involving a rival’s heir, Cobb marshals a team of specialists that includes his right-hand man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), an architecture student (Ellen Page) and a chemist (Dileep Rao).

My fellow movie critics call this “a film that rewards intellect.” I think I got 84% of this movie right. I will be the first one to admit I am not the smartest person. I say this because I could never solve the Rubik’s Cube.

This is a long movie. It is 2 hours 28 minutes of my life I will not get back. It is a dream within a dream within a dream movie. You have to really pay close attention to get this and after 2 hours 28 minutes I did not feel satisfied. It was like that one season in Dallas where Bobby was dead and at the end of the season we discover it was just Pam’s bad dream. What was that?

The special effects were incredible. I do like Christopher Nolan as I have enjoyed both Batman movies, The Prestige and Memento but this one was too much. I did not hate this movie or anything but 2 hours 28 minutes is a long time.

I am just going to give this movie 2.8 stars. If you like movies about dreams and memories I would recommend “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)” over this one.
