One of the best films of the year and in my mind now one of my all-time favorite movies.
Story - 10/10
Absoutely incredible. Dominic "Dom" Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an extractor which is a thief that teals ideas from peope's subconscious. He along with his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Leavitt) are tasked with doing the complete opposite of extraction which is known as Inception (the placing of an idea into one other's subconscious with them knowing it their own idea and not perceiving it as another's).Hired by business mogul Saito (Ken Wantanbe) and a team composed of Ariadne (Ellen Page) the architect, Eames (Tom Hardy) the forger, and Yusuf (Dileep Rao) the chemist all essential to the mission with thier own special and unique skills. Confusing yes but you do get it at the end of the film.
Acting - 10/10
Fantastic'. its would be very difficult to find a better DiCaprio performance while Marion Cotillard delivers as the Shade otherwise known in the film as Dom's wife. The supporting cast give in very strong and solid performances espcially in their dramatic sequences that makes the film ever so real.
Script - 10/10
Amzing dialogue, great scripted action sequences, and a heart-wrenching story that delves deeper and deeper into the soul of this film as through the story progression shows through the dismal guise of which is Cobb's sole purpose of this last job and striving for what he longs the most. Lines in this film and the story itself (especially the ending) will keep you talking for years to come.
Characters - 10/10
Memorabe characters that will stick to film lore for the rest of the time that we can remember. The enigmatic Cobb, and his team of equally kickass chracters that also give the film the badassery that it tinges and resonates throughout the film's opening scenes till the midst of Fisher's mind to the cimactic ending kick these character show that their is still great character-driven stories out there.
Suspense/Action - 10/10
Non-stop guessing, thriing action that leaves you wanting to just join in and you find uprself smiling throughout the entire film this film is just plain great in all departments OMFG!
100% all the way if any one diagrees with that I'm sorry but they truly are a fool. This movie rules!!!
