I went and saw Inception last night, and WOW! What an incredibly awesome movie. The ending was unpredictable, the details throughout were amazing and the visuals were fantastic. It's been a really long time since I've seen a movie I really enjoyed, not to mention that I would be willing to pay to see again.
Inception is an exception.
Inception is fast paced, intricate and definitely entertaining. It's visually intriguing, I found myself in awe of the tiniest of details in the sets and effects. You have to really watch the movie or you'll end up in the maze they've created, but once you're in, you're in. I'm a big fan of the full circle storyline especially when it's obvious it's not moving in full circle. I found myself wishing there were a book series I could go grab to read.
Usually it seems that movie trailers these days have pieces of the best scenes with nothing left to really discover watching the film. Inception's trailers are entertaining and definitely create an interest, but they are only a tiny piece of the excitement and involvement the full movie has in story.
I think this movie is a perfect example of the creator/writer/artist having a vision, knowing what it is they see, and executing it in a way to share with the universe as they see it… while still leaving room for the audience to add themselves into the story. As I was leaving the theater, I found myself wondering, “what if the concept of living in a dream were really my reality?” and my perspective of the night changed. I loved this movie, great job Christopher Nolan!
Inception is absolutely going on my list of all time favs.
