Plot : Dom Cobb is skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at it's most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse : their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team from the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. (from Warner Bros. Pictures)
My Thoughts : Most anticipated movie this summer!
I usually don't enjoy Leonardo Dicaprio's films.. they have been going down hill for me since Titanic. But this was very different.
I love Chistopher Nolan's films.
They might be hollywood blockbuster-ish films but they do have an edge in the end of the movie that makes you think, like 'The Prestige', and 'The Dark Night' was just brilliant.
The story was not all that difficult to follow as people say it was but just when I thought so, at the end I couldn't help but wonder...
Was he still dreaming? 1)why was he the only one young when he found Saito. 2)everyone looked at him on the airplane when he woke up 3)the totem never did stop spinning. 4)children never seem to have aged
But again, I would like it to be a happy ending... so even though I have all the doubts I just figured that where ever he was, he is happy now.
I have liked watching Joseph Levitt since '500 days of summer' and Ellen Page since 'Juno'. I thought they were terrific. Even Marion Cotillard was great and gorgeous. I'm glad this movie did not disappoint me at all !
It was all but serious movie with twists and a few small laughs in between.
I might go see it again. =D
