Right down the line, from acting to directing to writing to musical score to effects, this movie is top notch. In some cases brilliant. There’s not a weak link to be found.
There are very few movies that twist and turn between action and drama with Gatling gun speed yet remain mostly comprehensible. I said mostly, because everyone in the theater is going to walk out asking, “What just happened?”

Where most movies that try to mix a complex plot with action fail is that characters do things for unknown reasons. Or they do things and we don’t understand what it is that they are doing. With Inception it’s always clear what they are doing and why they are doing it. But what it means is always a debatable.
A friend that I saw this movie with summed it up perfectly, saying “This movie will be this generation’s Blade Runner.” This coming from a huge Blade Runner fan. I couldn’t agree more. Based on reviews and all the positive things people are saying in the social media sphere, Inception will have a hugely successful theater run. And you will very likely want to see it again on DVD because it needs multiple viewings to get your head wrapped around it.
There is no doubt Inception will garner a cultist following. The only downside I see from this are the inevitable copies it will spawn that will, for the most part, suck. Such is the price of a groundbreaking movie. (Don’t worry: you don’t have to see these movies. I do.)
Movie Grade: A+
Is there anything extra during the end credits of Blade Runner?

Watch Inception Movie
Christopher Nolan is one of the most skilled and successful directors of our time and his latest film Inception is no exception. The film is the director’s first original story since its debut feature film Following and just like Following, the script of Inception is a masterpiece. The cast of the film is also something that should not be missed in a movie by any cinema fan. The main character Dom Cobb is portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in the role of Arthur, another important character in the movie. One of the most interesting characters is Ariadne and seeing Ellen Page in the role is amazing.
Inception is the best!
