Now I'll confess, I love Leonardos of all the shades, be they paintists, mutated turtles, or The Noblest Actor of Generations. Like most, I have had them fingers crossed for a sequel to everyone's favourite aquatic romp 'Titanic'. Alas oh how we's continue to wait! Regardless, my dog Benji and I decided to give this epic dream saga a shot - normally Benji prefers romcoms, while I'm more of a sci-fi'ist, but we're an open-minded duo. Knowing full well that this was the very director who had invented Manbat, I had high expectations for his latest wares. Well I can tell you somebody's tail was wagging (it was Benji) within minutes of the movie opening!

Admittedly, for me the film was a little hard to follow. Having missed some sequences while visiting the toilet, I tried falling asleep to generate some dreams that could plug the gaps. In my version of the movie Benji and I found ourselves in a samurai showdown with Ken Watanabe - we lost, which was Benji's fault (bad dog). Obviously this is a slight plot digression to that which other viewers will encounter. Overall, I found my version of the movie stimulatory, bangtastic and thrillsome at all the right points. Benji and I say two paws up!

Well worth a watch, very impressed with the film from start to finish. Be prepared for you mind to spin at the start as a lot of information to take in but I think that added to the depth of the film.

An excellent film that you have to watch over and over to see if you understand it. I have seen it loads of times and some of it still confuses us.

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to get round to watching Inception I finally succumbed to the hype and can confirm that it was 100% deserved. Inception is a cleverly crafted film that will blow you away with its star studded (and very talented) cast, stunning CGI and mind boggling plot.

A whole host of famous actors star in Inception from Leonardo do Caprio to Tom Hardy to Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Ellen Page. I don't think I can fault a single move or sound that came from these actors who all gave flawless performances. I cannot pinpoint which character or actor stood out the most to me because they were all equally brilliant. Leonardo di Caprio is probably the actor who got to show the greatest spread of emotion and showcase different sides to his acting as his character is involved in a love story. This story permeates throughout the entire film, though rather strangely, few other characters are involved in it at all. This addition to the story just gave the film a little extra something and added an emotional level to this cool-as-a-cucumber film.

I do not think I have ever seen a film with such stunning CGI effects. Hats off to whoever was in control of the effects because they were truly brilliant and breathtaking at times. Inception deals with dreams within dreams (sometimes dreams within dreams within dreams!), in which the subconscious is allowed to create whatever world it desires and the cities created in this film were simply amazing whether it be a modern Western city, a Japanese city or even a ski slope. If only it were possible to fold a city in half with roads replacing the sky. It was not only the CGI used to create the scenery that was impressive, but also the effects used during the action sequences.

A movie built like a labyrinth, complete with a menacing minotauric presence and a guiding Ariadne; worlds within worlds and dreams reflected onto dreams like an infinity mirror effect.

Nolan takes the viewer deep, deeper than any other filmmaker in memory, and without holding your hand all the way he never lets you get lost. His vision has years compressed into hours, Paris folding onto itself, militarized minds and entire worlds built out of a single person's imagination. Yet in the end, his logic is solid and his story scintillatingly brilliant.

This is bioSciFi, cyberpunk and action movie all rolled into a complex story in the near future, where not even our dreams will be safe and sharing our subconscious fears and fixations will only be an induced REM cycle away.

This is about a team who specialise in entering the dreams of others, and then manipulating them in this dream state into thinking they must do something when they wake up. The team are also capable of designing dreams which they then implant. For example, the main plot of this film is that a wealthy CEO has paid the team to invade the dream of his main business rival and once there, plant ideas in his head to make him think he must take a certain course of action that will destroy his competitiveness. The dream is invaded by the team hooking themselves up to the sleeping victim using a special device, similar to a hospital 'drip' machine. Once there, the team members can interact with the victims to manipulate them. However this is a delicate task, as the mission will fail if they are killed in the dream (which will leave their actual self comatose) or if the subject realises they are dreaming and wakes up.

This film does contain some very confusing elements. For example, the team leave a tape playing music on in the room they are hooked up to the sleeping victim in. This is so that when the team in the dream hear certain lyrics or bars of music, they can remind themselves how much has elapsed. In some missions, they use these music cues as signals to do something in the dream. Perhaps the trickiest concept in the film is 'jumping levels', where they deepen the dream state. Even more confusing are points in the film where they design a dream that the person dreams they are dreaming....yes, I know!

The cast are all excellent, and good performances underline this. Given the tricky subject matter, there is a better than even chance you will feel a bit 'lost' at times, but you will still enjoy it.
