Christopher 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.
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.
