Fresh: Nolan has spun an elegantly cerebral story that is primal, compelling, and as visually disconcerting as it is completely captivating
- Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews, Friday, July 23, 2010
Fresh: If you think "Lost" was complicated, lets just say its kitten chow when compared to this.

"Inception" is an original film (sort of) that sparks the imagination and proves to us that big-budget blockbusters can be more than just CGI and explosions. Does this mean "Inception" is intelligent? No. Is it a science-fiction masterpiece? Not so much. So what's wrong with the film? It's the characters, they are underdeveloped. This is the problem I have with all Christopher Nolan films. I find it very difficult to relate to any of his characters. In "Inception", Cobb is dull and forgettable. Also, the totem idea doesn't make sense. Who says Cobb's little top can't fall down in his dreams? Anything can happen in dreams, thus making the totem completely pointless. Here's the thing, most of the things that happen in "Inception" are a little far-fetched. The film gets bloated at times, and to make matters worse you have Hans Zimmer's bombastic score constantly pounding in your face. But nonetheless, "Inception" is a thrilling movie. It certainly isn't the most intelligent film I've ever seen, and as far as dream films go, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" reigns supreme.
