I finally got to go see Inception last weekend and I gotta say, didn't disappoint! Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight) does a great job directing Leonardo DiCaprio in a mind-twisting, action-filled picture that makes you wonder by the end if what you're seeing is in the real world or just in the mind.
DiCaprio plays a man that excels at espionage/stealing people's ideas from their own subconscious. He works outside of the U.S. because he was accused of murdering his wife. A job comes up and if pulled off, he may return to the U.S. and his kids without being hindered. Most of the film surrounds around him and his partners in the mind of the man (Cillian Murphy) that must dissolve his father's business. In order to do so, they must 'implant' the idea into his head that his father wants him to dissolve the company so when he wakes up, he'll destroy the empire that his father left him. They come up with a complicated set of events that all happen at once for the viewer so you get to see multiple stories happening at once.
The movie is long but if you can handle the mind games and get to the final hour, you will be on the edge of your seat. Whether by trying to figure out what is going on or just watching the zero-gravity fight scene - that seat will not really be needed. If you can't keep up with the plot, you might come away disappointed in the movie. It's not for everyone. If you liked "Shutter Island", mystery movies, or big brother films, then this movie is for you! "Inception" is rated PG-13 and is playing at the Regal.
