I loved the concept of layered dream realities and a personal token to ground you, although in practice that likely wouldn't work. This is a well-crafted film with enough nuances to make you think and to warrant re-watching. If you are looking for something with a similar theme, Netflix released Infinity Chamber on a low budget in 2017 ... it starts slow and the similarity is not immediately obvious though.

One of my favorite and most original films i have ever seen. Great cast and one of my favorite, if not my favorite, directors, Christopher Nolan.

Hands down my favourite film out of all the films that I have watched! Everything is so memorable about Inception, the plot, action, cast and score to name just a few. The ending is absolute perfection! There is truly nothing like it in cinema!

This movie has one of the best story lines out of any movie I have seen. Christopher Nolan is my favorite director. It features Leonardo DiCaprio and returners of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Cillian Murphy which have been in other films of Nolan's. I rate this a five, on a 1 to 10 scale I would rate this around a 9.2

Arguably one of the best works of Christopher Nolan, this movie is so complex that even after watching it several times it's just as convoluted as before. Starring an incredible cast with Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Tom Hardy and others. All set to the background film score of Hans Zimmer's famous 'Time'. Dom Cobb and his team are tasked with placing an idea into the mind of a businessman's rival to give up his company. This sci-fi thriller event makes the audience question reality, but all Cobb wants is to reunite with his family. I would recommend this mind-bending movie to anyone who would appreciate this kind of dedication.

One of the best science fiction movies. Great cast, great special effects. If you do not pay attention, then the script will seem complicated, I suppose. We have all heard the rumours, anything advanced, such as "future" technology shown in the movies, is withheld from the public for at least 20 years or longer. Does the mind technology in INCEPTION [or Dreamscape (1984),Dennis Quaid] exist today? If it does, it would explain a lot and maybe the people locked up in mental institutions weren't crazy after all.
I think this is the first movie I seen that has shown waking up in a dream, inside of a dream, inside of a dream, etc., and each time you still think it feels like "real life".

The basic idea seems like it could have been a very good film: a device that allows one to enter others' minds whilst they are dreaming and implant one's own ideas into them without them being able to resist or even knowing about it, and one can also extract their ideas from their dreams; add criminals and major global corporations (and the natural foibles of man), and you've got yourself a film. Unfortunately, it got convoluted by super-special anesthetics (to keep people asleep) only available in Kenya (for no reason) that can make people so asleep that they dream that they dream, and even dream that they dream that they dream. Then there are different subplots in each dreamworld. The visuals of the film are a mixed lot: extraordinary special effects, but there are far too many cutbacks and closeups and an insane amount of fighting and shooting and killing.

Love this film--it keeps your attention and it is fast-paced. The film is about a professional thief who steals thoughts from people's memories such as classified information worth millions of dollars. He keeps on seeing his deceased wife in people's subconscious and it causes problems. The whole movie makes you wonder if everything is real or not. I'm not someone who typically watches a movie more than once (early on). However, I immediately watched it for the second time to catch some of the little clues that I missed during the first time. Not everyone will like this film because it can be a bit confusing at times, difficult to follow at times, and leave you with many questions. But I LOVED it and Leonardo DiCaprio did an excellent job with acting. There has been a lot of discussion about whether there should be a sequel to it or not. I have mixed feelings about this possibility because this was such a great film and I don't know if the sequel will live up to it--that is IF they do make a sequel for it. I highly doubt it though.

Multiple watches are needed to get everything from it as the plot is very complicated... but I've found it worth it every time. Great storytelling and ideas. Keeps you holding your breath for the whole movie and the emotional release at the end.... it's just great.
