Inception – Movie Review

In a time filled with lackluster big budget films one truly stands out as an accomplishment.  Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), takes a premise unlike most films and adds the action and depth necessary to pull it off. This star studded film is one that will reach people who like all different genres. The story is of a man named Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) who extracts ideas through people’s dreams and his business is doing fine until one day the task is presented to him to implant an idea rather than steal one. Once the rules are established the plot takes twists and turns that keep you guessing and quite frankly wondering what is going on. Eventually everything is straitened out and you leave the theater with a sense of wonder that keeps you questioning the film for weeks to come. Unlike most films this can be seen several times in a row and still stay relevant. Every viewing will allow you to capture something you didn’t notice before. While watching the film you are completely enveloped by the simultaneous action and intrigue that keep this film enjoyable. Though this film is very good it is not for everyone, anyone looking for a sequel to The Dark Knight will be disappointed as this movie has more depth and intelligence than The Dark Knight. While the action is very cool and important it just feels empty if you do not get the story (many people leave the theater still unaware of what happened). If you want to see an action movie that makes you think this is the one, it is possibly the best movie of the summer and definitely going to get some recognition at the Oscars. This is a movie that requires a lot of thinking and many people will not like that so be warned if you plan on going to this and sitting back and waiting for action. Inception is a film that makes you think more than many others now a days, it is a breath of fresh air in a time of cliché story lines. Inception is a film that will keep you thinking about the fine line between dreams and reality and what it truly means to exist. Inception gets an 8/10.       –by William G. Bigelow
