Film Review: Inception

Inception is the brand new blockbuster movie written, co-produced and directed by the renowned Christopher Nolan. The movie focuses on a ‘run of the mill’ con man; however, Inception is much more than that, the film progresses from being ‘run of the mill’ to a unique and fabulous blend of ingenuity on Nolan’s part. Also the researchers behind the film have done a fabulous job of making a complicated plot accessible to a general audience. Overall the film is an exceptional exploitation of what can be achieved when the human mind is put to work; there is everything a good film needs, ranging from exhilarating car chase scenes, to scenes of the Swiss Alps in all their beauty. Inception really does take the film industry to another level, especially in the modern culture of remakes and sequels that frankly become tedious. Inception veers away from the ‘norm’ of movies made of late, the concept is completely distinct. Whereas the movie is not the first of its kind regarding the notion of entering the subconscious of people; it is certainly the most captivating and intelligently juxtaposed with the idea of theft and conning others. Such is Inception’s brilliance that you undoubtedly will decide to watch the movie again and again; I know I did! Ingenious ideas are not often come about; this film is the exception, not only is the move as a whole genius, the subplots and dramas within are too!
