Inception-Movie-SoundtrackAh, Inception. Where do I begin??

Christopher Nolan, well known for directing masterpieces Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, has done it again and brought us something so unimaginably amazing, it’s too hard to describe.

Leo Dicaprio stars as Dom Cobb, a man who leads a team into other people’s dreams, looking for one thing: Secrets. They are the extractors. But, they are then given the task of planting an idea in someone else’s mind.

Inception-MovieThis film is a mind-bending experience that truly brings out the amazing directing skills of Nolan. The film also includes fabulous performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy, both of which are to star in Nolan’s upcoming  – The Dark Knight Rises.

Whether you understand it or not, there’s no denying the complexity of the film, and just how brilliant it is. This will be top of my DVD collection, always and forever. Inception will expand your mind to lengths unknown.

inception-headerEvery morning, I wake up, and I kick myself because I didn’t watch this in the cinema. Whether you like Nolan or not, watch it. Just watch it. It is amazing, right down to the last detail, which features heavily in this film, so be sure to pay attention!

Overall, I give this film 5 stars, for being absolutely amazing in every way possible. Enjoy 🙂

Rating 5 out of 5 stars
