InceptionChristopher Nolan does it again with another supremely written and perfectly directed film. He continues to create a story that demonstrates enough depth without losing the audience or insulting their intelligence.

The best actors want to work with the best directors. With his reputation, Christopher Nolan is able to get A list actors that continue to perform at a high level. Inception does not stray from this trend. Leonardo DiCaprio has quickly become an actor that you can count on for a more than satisfying movie going experience. Both Nolan and DiCaprio have a track record that will be hard to tarnish.
At the risk of using some hyperbole the score for Inception is epic, and the visuals amaze. The music transitioned each scene with seamless flow. The cast of actors were well selected for each roll, and Nolan wrote each part to play to their strengths.

With a summer that has lacked big blockbuster movies, it might be easy to say, "well this is probably as good we're going to get". That may be the case, but that is not the fault of the film. The individual aspects of Inception may be greater than the whole, but none interfere with what will be remembered as a great film.

Overall I would give it a 4.5 out of 5. While acting, story, score, and visuals I rate a 5.

With Inception all wrapped up, Christopher Nolan is now free to work on the much anticipated following up to The Dark Knight, yet to be titled Batman 3. We shall see soon if the rumors are true that the Riddler will be the villain, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt teaming back up with Nolan to play said role.

  1. I went to this movie on a date, and I was mad because the normal date-ish-ness was getting in the way of me seeing the movie!!! And so did the perspiration from my diet coke, dripping down my shirt.

    I walked out completely unstead on my feet (thank you gravity special effects) and feeling like I had a shot of adrenaline. I need to see it again to make sure I didn't miss anything :)
