This is leaps and bounds the best film of the summer and one of the best films of the year. Christopher Nolan takes a break from the Batman franchise to give a film so original, the mind can barely grasp the genius of it. Complete with an international cast that is perfect, Inception is THE film to see.
Inception has a plot that is intelligent but a bit complex. To avoid giving too much away, I’ll give a brief sweeping description. Leo DiCaprio plays Tom Cobb, a man who enters people’s dreams and extracts their deepest darkest secrets. That is until he gets hired to do a job that takes his skills to a whole other level.
The cast of this new kind of heist movie is better than I could have imagined. Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Coitilard all excel at helping Nolan and DiCaprio with making an amazing mind-bender. In hopes of avoiding spoilers, just go see this movie. 10 years from now, we will still be talking about this movie and the brilliance of it. The fight scenes are crisp but also take on a whole new dimension. The acting is sharp and yet realistic given the fantasy element. 5 out of 5 stars.
**If you can, see it on IMAX like I did. It made it even more awesome (in the dictionary way, not skateboarder landed a sweet jump way)
