Stars:Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page
Inception is a tale of mind control and trickery set in the not-so-distant future. Con-artists Leonardo Dicaprio, Tom Hardy, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are the masters of a technique of mind-control that preys on the victims dreams. The premise of this film is massive and creative, but can confuse the pants off of many people. So pay close attention.
Dialogue lacks because the characters have to explain the technology of “dream-weaving” in a way the viewers can understand. This can make for some boring moments in the film, but this monumental adventure captivates the imagination and hold your attention with suspense, fear, and suspicion.
Dicaprio’s lead role resembles that of Shutter Island, but the real star in my opinion is Tom Hardy. Joseph Gordon-Levitt shined and really owned the role proving his acting talents. The action which included, car chases, back-stabbing, full-blown military combat, hand-to-hand fight scenes (the anti-gravity fight scene with Levitt), and gut-wrenching emotional tension, can leave you feeling ill and psyched when the credits start rolling.
This movie cannot be summed up in a short review; it was hardly explained in 148 minutes. Inception is a must-see because Christopher Nolan outdid himself. The plot and story line is a benchmark in creative filmmaking and definitely a favorite on any real movie-goers list.
