About the Movie

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible--inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Even as you tick off the film's overload of references, though -- a Matrix here, a James Bond there -- the amazing effects and Cobb's quest carry you along. – Caryn James, Newsweek, Jul 20, 2015

Fresh: A spectacular fantasy thriller based on Nolan's own original screenplay, Inception is the smartest CGI head-trip since The Matrix. – Tom Charity,, Jul 20, 2015

Fresh: This endlessly fascinating swirl of a film could have come only from Nolan, who blends the cerebral twistiness of Memento (his thriller that moves backward in time) with the spectacular action of his Batman megahit, The Dark Knight. – Caryn James, Newsday, Feb 7, 2018

Fresh: A heist film of thrilling, almost delirious complexity. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jul 20, 2015

This movie is a visual masterpiece. Leonardo DiCaprio acts great, the memories of the past afflict with his missions. Its like the thing in our past we could never accept. This movie is a must buy everyone will love.

"Inception" plants an epic, original idea.

"Inception" is a brilliant, epic masterpiece. Christopher Nolan spent ten years on the screenplay for "Inception", for a good reason. The film has a complex, multi-layerd storyline that asks the audience to use their minds. When I say 'complex', I mean that compared to the CGI-laden action films with no story, "Inception" asks you to think. And when you do, it's that simple. The story is an original, thrilling adventure that keeps you on the edge. The terrific ensemble cast, headed by Leonardo DiCaprio, does a brilliant job portraying a team of skilled mind-theives. Leonardo, as always, puts emotion and power in his role as Dom Cobb. The action was well-crafted and went perfectly with the story. Overall, I see no real flaws in "Inception". Mr. Nolan should take home "Best Picture", "Best Director", and "Best Original Screenplay", which he really deserved for "The Dark Knight". Two big thumbs up.
"A single idea from the human mind can build citys. An idea can transform the world, and re-write all the rules. Which is why, I have to steal it." - Dom Cobb
