So, review is late. Again. Seems like that’s the trendy thing to do this summer. In my defense – my Zerg ate my review, so I had to write a new one.
Speaking of trendy things – Inception is a trending topic on Twitter for a second week now. Trusting a community that keeps Justin Bieber as a trending topic for over 6 months is never a good idea, but since they predicted the awesomeness of Kick Ass, I was really expecting a lot from Inception.
On to the chase. The night started rainy and gloomy, while some of us had sunburn from the day before. While upside-down-burgers were being eaten again, we got to discuss “paratrooping” with our newest movie-goer, in his first homeland appearance. Apparently what we talked about was so deep and engaging someone had to try to walk trough a door, which didn’t prove to be successful. A few pats on the back later we were in a packed cinema, watching what the Matrix should have really been.
Dreamworld, in a dreamworld, in a dreamworld. It’s a game with the ultimate creative desire – to play God and shape the world at your whim. The same idea that got you thinking in the Matrix works here, only expanded in a whole different way. Especially fascinating are the moments where you see how recursion and paradoxes can work in a really creative way, one that you’ve never imagined. Call me geeky.
The movie had me interested at minute 5 and didn’t let go until the end. There was 1 moment where they could have messed it up, had they pushed the lame talk a minute longer. Good thing they know their timing right and stopped before this ruined an otherwise 100% immersed experience. It’s a rare thing when a movie gets me like this and given the plot of the movie, it’s quite fitting that you get out of the movie hall, wondering what happened.
The cast is something special. Leo DiCaprio has definitely learned how to act, a long time ago and it shows. Plus he’s not the cute kid from Titanic anymore so he doesn’t make me twitch just by looking at him. The typical Hollywood hotties were also missing, substituted with two slightly strange looking chicks.
Generally speaking, this is a movie with lack of cliché. It gives you a bit of everything that makes a decent movie stick out and tops it with great ideas and splendid execution. One of the movies you know you’ll watch again and mention as a reference a few years down the line.
I really wish they made more of those.Inception, 9.4 out of 10 based on 10 ratings
