Inception

Posted by martinteller on August 15, 2010

Well, this was okay.  Nolan certainly knows how to put together a slick-looking movie and construct an intricate plot.  The problem is that the plot is intricate in a way that seems designed for nerds to argue about on the internet.  The multiple layers of reality don’t really add any depth to the themes, and the story is only interesting in the sense that you have to work a little harder to put together the details of What Is Happening.  Whenever the film tries to get philosophical it mostly comes off as silly.  Still, I was entertained (except for the last half hour, which just drags on and on and on) and the gee-whiz special effects are impressive.  Rating: 7
