Inception Review IMDB very funny. I had the privilege of seeing this movie before it came out, and, like most of DiCaprio’s films, it blew me away. Inception is a well-made movie, filmed in about 6 locations all over the world. The directing was outstanding, there were only about two moments, maybe three seconds in total, where i noticed that visual effects were being used (of course defying gravity is pretty difficult).
The plot was very pleasingly intricate, with a twist-and-turn, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat type feel. I noticed that this film had similarities with DiCaprios thriller Shutter Island (which i also enjoyed very much)seeing as it left you wondering what was real and what was not. It’s great to see a movie with a thick and emotional plot and not just grenade-throwing action heroes who achieve greatness in the end.
Inception also has a very well-composed score, which to me was the finishing touch to a perfect movie. If you’re thinking about seeing Inception, definitely go! Even though i was fortunate enough to see a free show, it is worth every penny you pay. Truly unique, like nothing i’ve ever seen before. Christopher Nolan certainly covered new ground with this film and wasn’t afraid to leave us hanging with a spectacular ending.
I was keen to see this film given the high IMDb rating, as I agree with nearly all ratings I’ve seen on the site, but I appear to be one of the minority who think it is overrated. I couldn’t emotionally engage with the characters for some reason, and so was not too concerned on the outcome for them.
Whilst there were some complexities to the plot, it is reasonably easy to understand. I agree with some other comments I’ve seen that many characters accepted the quite fantastical premise very readily, and were prepared to place themselves at considerable risk for no real reason. So some reactions were not what you would expect for the situation. Having had time to reflect I would watch the film again, but do not think I will keep coming back to this unlike the Matrix which has a similar feel but is a much better film.
