Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Its now been 520 days from when it was first announced last year that Christopher Nolan's next movie would be Inception. Now finally hitting theaters everywhere today is one of this year's most highly anticipated action movies - Inception. So how is this epic, complex, awe-inspiring sci-fi action-thriller? Is it Nolan's new masterpiece or just another great movie, but not better than his others? How was the cast, lead by Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Was it too complex? If you've seen it, then leave us a comment below and let us know what you thought of Inception!
To fuel the fire, I just watched Inception again for my second time earlier tonight and holy sh*t my mind is still numb for how brilliant and complex and visually stunning that entire film is, from start to top-spinnin' finish! It's really a piece of art, it's so good. Chris Nolan is really a genius and he's crafted another amazing film here. From the story to the characters to the visuals, to the intensity and flow and emotion of DiCaprio's character, it was all perfectly put together. There were some scenes that I totally loved, like the hallway fight with JGL and anything involving Dileep Rao (because he's awesome) like the entire bridge-drop sequence.
What I also really love about Inception is that it gets your mind thinking, it starts up discussions, it's one of those movies that everyone comes out of talking about, just because there's so much to talk about. I thought Nolan ended it perfectly as well, leaving just enough to satisfy those who want to see it end happily, plus a little hint of more for those who want to ponder other possibilities. This is one movie you cannot miss, it's an experience, a true highlight of the summer. And after seeing it, you must join the discussion, right here.
What did you think of Inception? Christopher Nolan's latest masterpiece or not even close?
