Although I have a certain amount of respect for the scope of this film, there's too much talk and no tension in Inception. It's flat, cold and only mildly impressive. It's not pretty, dreamlike, or particularly creative. All this film comes down to is a daft action movie where DiCaprio plays himself condescending Ellen Page and running around dreams with a French woman. Artistically unimpressive disappointment.
I love the ambition in this film,but way too much action.It's the problem when you want to be more accessible to a larger audience,you dumb it down!
Too bad,but good movie though.
Yeah... I should probably get around to seeing this.
No.12 - I avoided this film when it was released because I was sick of hearing everyone talk about it but it's genuinely good. Turns out everyone was right.
Great entertainment value but full of plot holes
Very Good film but Terry Gilliam nailed the biggest problem with the film "With ’Inception,’ I wondered why all of the dreams were action movies. Don’t people have other dreams?".
I've loved the film since 2010, when it was released. I revisited Inception and figured there are so many scenes that could have benefited from long takes, better editing, and silence instead of Zimmer's score.
One of the finest films to come out of the Hollywood machine in recent history is this intelligent, fascinating work by Nolan. A great script that is able to keep so many balls in the air daring one to find holes in its structure. Fine performances, top notch artistry behind the camera and what a score. Clever and oh so satisfying. Dream bigger indeed.
Falls in love with itself for no apparent. This fanboyism around Nolan is absurd in my honest opinion.
You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
A film with a lot of wasted potential. The final act is made up of a bunch of generic action/heist movie cliches and they aren't even done very well. Also, I thought the dream sequences were far more literal than they could have been and I wished Nolan had been more creative here. Also, the first act, like other Nolan films, drags on, creating uninteresting characters and it over explains things, like the dream tech
It's easy to follow and very rewarding if you pay attention.
To me this is a smart well done action movie, with some existential and ambiguous elements to make you think and discuss on the drive home. It is a pretty straight forward affair, if you pay attention everything should flow pretty easily. I think the great dislike is directed towards a general audience not understanding it and raving about it's complexity, which drove film buffs crazy. Now it's time to wake up.
Solipsism is bad philosophy.
This film was a kind of promising but suspicious in a way from the start. Nolan tries to be deep and thoughtful about human mind but fails when he's psychoanalytical plot developing gets buried under all the action and useless family drama. Once watched it was quite good but at the second time it showed it's true colors: there was no depth in the plot and it also was kind of boring. Good ans original idea though.
A very typical Christopher Nolan film. I think a lot of the story doesn't even make sense, but the bigger problem is how much Nolan relies on a plot twist to drive the story. Nolan does this in nearly all his films, and it gets a bit old. It's still a cool film movie though.
Nolan's detractors tend to label his directing style as 'cold' and 'sterile.' Frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way. With "Inception," Nolan proved that the Hollywood blockbuster was in dire need of a more cerebral approach. While the script is a bit over-burdened with exposition, "Inception" provides plenty of imagery to dazzle the eyes at the same time the story ties the viewer's brain in knots.
I find it halarious how a director who plays so closely and safely into Hollywood can stir up the hornet's nest as much as he has on this page. Generally his detractors sound just as desperate and defensive as his fans.
I'm not yet convinced that Leo can act.. and then Nolan couldn't decide what type of movie it was going to be. uninspired.
Inception is a challenging, brilliant, and incredible film. Nolan is a genius. One of the best movies ever.
your dream is my video game.
One of the most overrated and overhyped movies in the past few years. And I still have the same opinion after a second viewing.
Gran película... Gran director... DiCaprio cada vez más sólido...
Dreaming is tricky! Good movie!
With so many years to write the screenplay, Nolan creates a dizzying masterpiece that keeps you guessing right up until the end. I couldn't help thinking of how Birth of A Nation used pioneering cross-cutting of two parallel lines of action and how Nolan successfully merges four lines of action.
I loved it. Thanks to Moffat and Doctor Who I didn´t have any troubles following the plot. Joe Gordon-Lewitt was as perfect as it gets and NOlan and his team made movie magic happen again.
Finally decided to watch it and can now say that yes, I understand what the fuss is about.
With its entwined layers, Inception (2010) for the most part serves as an unfathomable riddle and makes multiple viewing extremely essential. It incredibly does extremely well on both the humanistic as well as the technical fronts.

I watched this again recently and still love it. If they ever release a 3d version I want to watch it.
