July 17 — Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘Inception’ has been given very positive reviews by some of the top critics. It is said that writer/ director Christopher Nolan has delivered the perfect blend of action and intelligence in Inception.
The movie is a spectacularly entertaining and people may want to see it at least twice. It is so mind-bendingly original.
The plot of Inception can be explained as a world where technology exists to enter human mind through dream invasion. In anyone’s mind, a single idea can be most dangerous weapon or it can be the most valuable asset.
Filmcritic.com’s Jason Morgan rates Inception as ‘A’ and says, “Make no mistake, the action scenes in Inception are unlike anything you’ve seen.”
Kirk Honeycutt at Hollywood Reporter also gave the movie ‘A’ rating mentioning, “A devilishly complicated, fiendishly enjoyable sci-fi voyage across a dreamscape that is thoroughly compelling.”
New York Post’s Lou Lumenick did the same by giving ‘A’ rate stating, “In a season of brain-dead spinoffs, Inception stands out as a singularly cerebral exception and will generously reward your 148 minutes of undivided attention. I strongly suspect a second visit will pay off even more.”
A.O. Scott from NYT disagrees slightly and gives ‘B’ rating. Scott said, “It is more like a diverting reverie than a primal nightmare, something to be mused over rather than analyzed, something you may forget as soon as it’s over.”
From USA Today, Claudia Puig also slightly differ and she gives B+ rating. According to her, “The film is easier to admire than to fully grasp or be moved by it. Still, it’s worth surrendering to the dream.”
