Inception

As we all know, Christopher Nolan is possibly one of the best, if not best, directors in Hollywood. Seriously, anyone who can make a comic book hero one of the highest grossing movies of all time because it was *fucking insanely awesome* is clearly worthy of the ‘Best Director In Hollywood’ crown.

I saw Inception. I was apprehensive at first since I was worried it would remind me of Dark Knight, but I was wrong. Essentially this movie is about a man who enters the dream world in order to get information the dreamer has stored away in the depths of the mind. Leonardo DiCaprio plays our hero (for better or for worse) who is helping Ken Watanabe bring down a rival company, so he can have a monopoly over his industry. The unsuspecting rival, played by Cillian Murphy was done beautifully. His minor back story has more of an emotional punch to it than DiCaprio’s. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays as a sort of side-kick to DiCaprio, is the least explored characters, yet in my opinion the most interesting. I feel he should have been given more care as he is a great actor, but was used poorly. Ellen Page was there and frankly she could have been any other pretty face. She was a very lack luster character who was clearly a pivotal one.

The acting in the movie is very tight, as is the script. On your first viewing you will be hard pressed to find plot holes. The movie is smart, but don’t let that dazzle you. If you do, you will miss the underplayed humor through the movie. You’ll find yourself more involved with the rest of the cast than DiCaprio, but I doubt you’ll mind. This movie is amazing. Nolan has proven to us once again that he knows what he is doing, and we all thank him for that.

    Martin Scorese still better than Nolan, but Nolan is quite amazing and is only getting better and better.

  2. Girls with Comics Says:

    I would agree, but Shutter Island was remarkably predictable.

    Yes it was and was also considered the “weaker” of the Dennis Lehane books.
