Inception Review

Today, I finally got around to seeing Inception. Here's a short post about it.


Directed and Written by Christopher Nolan who is best known as the director of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy.

What I Liked:
= The soundtrack. Right from the beginning, Hans Zimmers' soundtrack really set the mood of the whole film.
= Despite the 2 hours 45 minute run time, not once did I wonder if the film was almost finished. It took hold right from the beginning, and didn't let go to the breath taking (and slightly disheartening) ending.
= Tom Hardy as Eames. He had the funniest lines, and provided most of the humor in the film. I've been a fan of Tom Hardy since the first time I saw him in Star Trek Nemesis, he played the Shinzon (the bad guy & clone of Jean-Luc Picard)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Tom Hardy

= The fact that the film isn't as hard to understand as everyone is saying it is. If you are worried about seeing it, don't be. I'm still recovering from a cold, and I had to deal with an emotional staff member at work 15 minutes before the film so I went in with other tinges on my mind, but I understood.... well until the last 5 seconds =D
= Cillian Murphy's amazing blue eyes! (yeah the photo is from Sunshine, but you can still see his amazing blue eyes)

 
What I Hated (well didn't like, since I didn't Hate any bit of this movie)
= sorry to say this, but Leonardo DiCaprio. He kinda annoys me a little, I don't know why. But That's the only problem I hade with the film.

It was a excellent film. I came home and looked it up, and read about the "Evil Foghorns" apparently the music is the key, so I now have to find time (and money) to go see it again so I can see if it's real.

I give the movie 5 out of 5. It had everything I need in a film. A good plot, excellent soundtrack and sexy actors.... that's all I really need.
