“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.”

Well, what can you say? When I saw the trailer last year I felt a leap within. Christopher Nolan is a man with visions and a nack for stories that bends our minds. I have seen most of his productions and I have been pleased in one way or another everytime. And this is no exception. “Inception” takes us for a ride in the mind and makes us think “What if?”. I love the existential twist and the questions it raises. This is wellmade into every detail and Hans Zimmer´s excellent musical score takes “Inception” up several notches. Some outstanding action sequences unravel infront of your eyes as well. The magnificent cast with DiCaprio, Gordon-Levitt, Hardy, Cotillard, Caine etc brings the story together and keeps it in a tight fit. What I think puts “Inception” a bit in the air, is the apparent likeness with “The Matrix” and it´s similar thoughts and action scenes. I felt as well that the winter action sequence was a bit out of place or maybe too much of a James Bond homage from Nolan. I kind of wish Nolan had cracked this one before “The Matrix”, but I do know he has worked on the script at least for a good eight years. I do however like the script to “Inception” much better and in this case we don´t have to endure the acting of a wooden stick…. This is a thriller that merges all sorts of influences in the Nolan blender and the result is pretty cool. It´s a solid 4 out of 5. See it and get your mind bended…..
