Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute 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.

Inception captivates the audience from beginning to end. Directed by Christopher Nolan, (The Prestige, Memento) Inception takes a completely new look at an everyday event - sleeping. He has taken dreams and made them a controllable reality. Within these dreams characters can interact with one another and engage in life-like scenarios. The movie starts off with a fast paced introduction that really gives you a feel for the characters and their abilities in this dream world. The movies intensifies as it progresses and character flaws come to light. It comes to light that the main character Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, has a dark past with a former lover. Many twists and turns leave the viewer constantly second guessing what is to come. Leonardo DiCaprio plays an excellent leading role and clearly secures his seat amongst top actors with his performance. Inception has an intriguing and complex plot that constantly entices the audience into wanting more. I would reccomend Inception to viewers of all types as it is truly a great film.
