Inception Review

There are few films out there as visually stunning as Christopher Nolan's Inception. It is one of the best action thriller films that has ever been made and will have people talking about it for years to come. What Nolan was able to do with Inception was create a film that can easily be enjoyed by just about everyone, because the movie itself has a little bit of everything in it. Whether its action, thrills, adventure or heist. It's groundbreaking in many ways. It features some very breathtaking cinematography by the great Wally Pfister as well as having some spectacular special effects. It also has a star-studded cast which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Pete Postlethwaite and Michael Caine. There are seven separate Oscar-nominated actors right there. That is just simply amazing.

In addition to featuring an amazing cast, great cinematography and special effects, Inception also features one awesome score by Hans Zimmer. The music is really able to match the characters feelings very well throughout the film and Zimmer received a much deserved Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score at the 83rd Academy Awards. Another amazing feat that Inception pulled off was that it was filmed in six different countries on four continents. Incredible, right?

What more can you say about this fantastic film? It's intense and entertaining and it's a movie that just about everyone seems to love. A lot of credit needs to go to Christopher Nolan on this one. The man simply knows how to make good movies that the public can thoroughly enjoy. He took a simple idea and turned it into something amazing. Inception is a film that could have never been made by any other director. Nolan had a vision that only he himself could produce on film. It is definitely a one-of-a-kind movie that everyone should see at least once.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5
