“If movies are shared dreams, then Christopher Nolan is surely one of Hollywood’s most inventive dreamers, given the evidence of his commandingly clever Inception.” ~ Justin Chang (Variety)
“Inception doesn’t just dream bigger than most movies even dare, but it leaves the audience feeling inspired to do the same.” ~ Katey Rich (CinemaBlend.com)
“A devilishly complicated, fiendishly enjoyable sci-fi voyage across a dreamscape that is thoroughly compelling. ” ~ Kirk Honeycutt (Hollywood Reporter)
“A wildly entertaining and dazzling mind-trip not to be missed. Kubrick would have been proud.” ~ Pete Hammond (Boxoffice Magazine).
“I expected a lot,but still walked out hypnotized. Here’s a movie that’s 3 steps ahead of you, on 4 different levels, at 5 blinding speeds. Best of 2010 thus far. (No Spoilers)” ~ Steven Snyder (Techland)
“Inception is an exhilarating cinematic experience that suggests there is still room, even in the blockbuster world, for big ideas and dangerous emotions, and that may be the single most thrilling thing about it.” ~ Drew McWeeny (Hitfix)
“a stunning achievement and the most completely entertaining film I’ve seen in years.” ~ Todd Gilchrist (Cinematical)
“Inception is a masterpiece. Making a huge film with big ambitions, Christopher Nolan never missteps and manages to create a movie that, at times, feels like a miracle.” ~ Devin Faraci (Chud)
“There are times in Christopher Nolan’s somnolent crime caper where you’ll find yourself recognizing moments from your own subconscious on the screen, to a thrilling, frightening and ultimately inspiring effect. ” ~ Jordan Hoffman (UGO)
“As intricate as the script is—Nolan worked on it for a decade—the movie is not just a feat of cinematic wizardry, even though it comes close to the level of technological derring-do carried off by the likes of Stanley Kubrick. (Indeed Nolan works in repeated homages to the late great auteur beyond the obvious use of moving sets on gimbles to allow athletic Gordon-Levitt to bounce weightless and walk on walls and ceilings.) The movie also has heart. So that even if you do get confused (as I did in the James Bond snow section, filmed in the Canadian Rockies), the emotional through-line pulls you along. It’s as simple as The Wizard of Oz: The Extractor wants to go home.” ~ Anne Thompson (IndieWIRE).
There you have it. If that’s not enough to make want to see this movie – well I can’t help you.
