Inception Review
Review Score:

It’s only August 2010 but we can tell you now that Inception will be the best movie ever to grace your screens this year. Furthermore myself, and other staff members can vouch that Inception is one of the best movies to grace our eyes in recent memory. Christopher Nolan’s masterful directing skills has dowsed us into a world of possibilities and endless scope and left us tingling for more.

So what is Inception about? Well essentially imagine a heist movie, but set inside a dream state. The cast stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe and Cillian Murphy. The best way to describe this film is to imagine that incepting someone’s dream to put subliminal thoughts and ideas into their head was actually possible, throw in a plot thickener such as DiCaprio wanting to clear his name (for which reason we shall not divulge) and you have a movie blockbuster that is helped together with some of the most intense and dynamic film score in modern memory. Not only is the cinematography provided by Wally Pfister an act of wizardry, it’s Hans Zimmers trademark musical work that makes everything about Inception come together with drama, suspense and mystery.

Inception delves into dream incubation and lucid dreaming and whilst some argue that the plot is overly complex, it really isn’t. Nolan guides you through the films narrative without compromising on the films pace. Due to the subject itself not being most straight forward he’s done a remarkable job of cutting between simultaneous situations and shifting between dream states in the movie. As for DiCaprio himself, he plays a fantastic lead and this is his best performance, topping his Body of Lies contribution!

You need to catch this movie in the cinema it’s one of those magical experiences that’ll leave you walking home pondering ‘what if’ and I love when that happens, it’s a rare cinematic experience that will take your breath away.
