    A truly rare, intelligent summer blockbuster packed with ideas and concepts to keep the audience contemplating long after the credits.

    When you have such a great writer/director as Christopher Nolan making his own thing, you can only expect to be mindblown. And I was, but not in the good way. I was blown away by how inconsistant the story felt to me and how boring the characters in the movie turned out to be. I don't doubt the idea behind it and I understand why many people will like this movie, however, it's not a movie that I would ever put my money on. It's a movie that lacks intensity and the many different story aspects are so badly put together that's it's almost like you'd rather watch "The Room." I truly believe that Nolan is much better at doing movies where we has a lot of source material to go out from. That's where this man truly shines.

    Inception succeeds on multiple levels thanks to it's brilliant script, wonderful direction and outstanding effects - all of which come together to create a unique, surreal experience unseen in mainstream blockbuster entertainment.
