Inception, Holy Crap this movie was AMAZING!

Inception directed by Christopher Nolan opened to the public this weekend and Oh. My. God. I don't know if I can do this movie justice with my review, but for all of you, I will try.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Inception also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom-hot as can be-Hardy, Ken Watanabe and drum roll please.....the one and only Tom Berenger! "Take your man and get out of here or I'll shot you in the hand." Classic.

I didn't really know what to expect going into this movie, yeah sure dreams and all that whoo haa. But the layers and layers that are woven, the dynamic of the story and actors, heartbreaking drama, the nail bitting edge of my seat action and unbelievable sound and visual effects? Yeah um no, did NOT see all that coming.

Musical score was amazing, Hans Zimmer a master at what he does. And yes he is the same guy who did Dark Knight. Fact checker that I am. ;) Music brought the views right where they needed to be throughout the film. Dark and twisted then sad and longing. LOVED IT!

***Waring: If you did not get the Matrix, you wont get this film. Period.

Its not a fluff summer popcorn movie, its the read deal and will make you think. No vegging allowed people! lol
Dont miss this film, I recommend IMAX for this one or if you live in the Campbell area they have a theater that just installed motion seats. I have yet to check it out for myself but trust that its on the to do list.
