Inception (movie review) : Awesome!

After reading the amazing movie review by Carl, I knew that this was a movie that I just had to see! So the UKM Wondergirls took advantage of the longer lunch time last Friday and managed to arrive just in time for the 12.30 pm screening at Berjaya Times Square. We sat in the second row (seemed like mere inches from the screen) and I had a great time.

Title: Inception
Director/Writer/Producer: Christopher Nolan (same as The Dark Knight)


Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Arthur (that kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun)
Ellen Page as Ariadne (loved her in Juno)
Tom Hardy as Eames
Ken Watanabe as Saito (hey! the guy from The Last Samurai)
Dileep Rao as Yusuf
Cillian Murphy as Robert Fischer Jr
Marion Cotillard as Mal

Basic synopsis:

Cobb and his team are experts in corporate espionage. Their MO is to steal people's ideas from their dreams through dream sharing. After meeting Saito, they embark on an impossible mission. Not to steal and idea but to implant one- Inception. Cobb assembles a new team , Arthur his right-hand man, Ariadne the gifted architect, Eames the hilarious forger and Yusuf the chemist. Together they all venture into the subconcious world of Robert Fischer's dreams whilst being pursued by Cobb's own dark past.

What I liked about this movie:

The best thing about this movie was the incredible storyline and plot. It was absolutely amazing that someone could think up of such a complex idea and yet be able to convince the viewing public that it was plausible. The visual effects were stunning with endless breath-taking action sequences and jaw-dropping panoramic views. The acting was stellar and each cast member delivered a solid performance. Proof that the story was excellent? No unnecessary love/sex scenes at all!

What I disliked about this movie:

I can't really think of anything except perhaps the ending! Even so it was engineered to make everyone leave the cinema thinking "Did he..or didn't he?" We will never know..hehe.

A quote I liked from the movie:

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
- Eames (and takes out a grenade launcher)

Definitely a must see movie. Go! Go!

Rating: 4.8/5
