Inception (2010) – Review
In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a highly skilled thief is given a final chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job till date, Inception.
I found this film very exciting. I think the storyline takes the meaning of inception into literal terms. Inception meaning an event that is a beginning; a first part or stage of subsequent events. They explain in the film that the dream can leave the person changed and that this person could become an entire new person after inception. I like the effects that are done to bend the structure of a dream; how there are consequences if rules are broken. I found it really enticing to watch as I watched them go into three stages of dreams. A dream within a dream within a dream and if they die while they’re in a deep slumber they will go into a coma in real life rather than wake up; but in the dream their minds would be trapped in the “basement”.
Taking this risk into account they perform inception and I think that is what draws in the audiences attention. I think what traps the audience is when they get shot, the feeling that they might die and go into a coma is very intense and the audience watches further to see whether they survive or not. The ending was great but leaves the audience thinking “Well did the rest survive?”. A great mind boggling film.
