Excerpt: Writer-director Christopher Nolan explores the realm of dreams in Inception; The sci-fi thriller's premise sounds simple enough, but its execution by Nolan is anything but. Ostensibly an international heist caper, Inception follows Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), an "extractor" whose form of corporate espionage is to invade the dreams of the rich and powerful and pluck their most tightly guarded secrets from the depths of their subconscious.
Excerpt: Ok, here goes my review for Inception. It's a complicated, complicated movie but i will go over the plot and why i think it's so good. Christopher Nolan directed it and the guy just does not seem to make a bad movie. It's just hit after hit. Here we have Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio as the main character. He practices a type of crime called extraction, which is going inside someone's mind and stealing information or secrets.
Summary: I just finished seeing this movie, and I absolutely enjoyed it. The concept was what I loved the most. Yes, the picture had its share of special effects and CGI, but the reasons for them were always clear, and they served the plot so very well. The multi-layers of action going on were the driving force behind the picture and kept it going. So, if that kind of story doesn't interest you then Inception is not your kind of picture.
