Movie Review

Movie Title: Inspection

Movie Story: Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn’t steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can’t get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he’s forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won’t be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage. They’ve planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they’re up to, and precisely how to stop them. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Christopher Nolan continued to conquer the decade with consistent hits starting the decade with one of his best films (2nd best in my Nolan list). The concept of dream-sharing was extremely fresh and was brilliantly executed. The movie was extremely fast-paced, action-packed, demanded extreme attention and eventually rewards it. This movie is one of the most rewatchable flicks ever made and has aged phenomenally. Hans Zimmer absolutely deserved an oscar for this because the music complimented the film so well. He composed gems like '528491', 'One simple idea' and 'Mombassa'. My personal favorite soundtrack is 'Time' which also happens to be a part of my everyday playlist. Leonardo DiCaprio's acting, Nolan's genius idea, and execution, Zimmer's breathtaking soundtracks, and outstanding special effects have made Inception not only the best movie of the decade but also one of my all-time favorite Hollywood movies. Nolan has been proving consistently that he's a genius and just like 2010's Inception at the very beginning of the decade, I expect Tenet, which comes out in mid-2020 to be my favorite pick for this decade, only time will tell.

I thought this was a good movie but terribly confusing. Most of the "people" being "killed" are just parts of dreams and not real living people. Another example is one of the characters getting shot in the head(non-graphic) but he simply wakes up as a result. That being said, there is a lot of action and it can be pretty confusing(I had to pause and rewind a bunch but still didn't understand some of what was going on until near the end) so young kids probably won't enjoy it anyway.
