Inception Review

“You never remember the beginning of your dreams, do you? You just turn up in the middle of what’s going on.” Dom Cobb said this while he was putting together a group of people to fish into the subconscious minds of others and to take the information to possibly help Dom fix a past wrong and get back to his children. This movie is filled with layers of complicated twists and surprises but it also provides tiny relatable notes which temper the complication into something enjoyable. This is a heartfelt movie about a father trying to get back to his kids. Although this movie does have a bit of gunfighting I wouldn’t say it’s scary. Dom Cobb portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio has a complex background and is just trying to redeem himself to his family. The movie is so detailed down to all the little special effects, lighting, and set pieces. Editing is everything with this movie. This movie is so unique and thought-provoking. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes, a little long but the filmmakers had a lot of material they wanted to include and I think they did a great job. 

Inception is great for all ages and so great for people who love science fiction. A few times in the movie I got a little lost and confused but it had a way of bringing you back and refreshing your memory. There is a lot of running and yelling which can make the dialogue hard to understand at times, especially when the characters are whispering or talking in another language. This 2010 movie is related to the 2020 move Tenet that has been getting lots of positive feedback. Tenet is also directed by Christopher Nolan and the main character in Tenet portrayed by John David Washington has confirmed that the movies are related which has started rumors that it is a secret sequel (read more at Overall I think this movie is one you should watch if you want a thought-provoking and somewhat complex choice.
