A military project that allows for individuals to share a lucid dream together becomes the new battleground for corporate espionage as Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his team of information extractors take on on their hardest mission yet. To complete their job Cobb, Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Ariadne (Ellen Page), Eames (Tom Hardy), and Yusuf (Dileep Rao) will need to accomplish the previously thought impossible– instead of stealing thoughts and memories from an individual in their dreams, they’ll need to plant an idea, an inception. If they successfully plant an idea in the mind of Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy), they’ll be admonished of all previous wrong doing and Cobb will be allowed back into the U.S. to see his children. But, what deep rooted issues of the subconscious might be lurking in the group that could stop them from accomplishing their goal, and just how far will they have to go? Perhaps the film that saves the summer of meh, it looks like director Chris Nolan has struck again with a smart, engaging, twisting, action thriller. All of the actors pretty much nail their roles, in particular DiCaprio and Gordon-Levitt have a lot to be proud of. I’m not as sure about Page, but she doesn’t hurt anything either. Special effects worked fantastically, Hans Zimmer’s score adds the right amount of tension and release, and the cinematography is show stopping. I know I know, I’m gushing on this one, but seriously, there’s lots to think about and discuss with wild imagination starters happening here. This is one film not to be missed. Inception is rated PG-13.
