Default Inception.

I haven't seen this film yet but it looks like the director of The Dark Knight has yet again produced an epic blockbuster, just as he did 2 years ago.

Here's the trailer:







Also this is one of the first reviews of the film:

Quote:
The Hype...


Two years after The Dark Knight broke box-office records, director Christopher Nolan returns with this stunning effort which aims to inject complexity and depth into the traditionally throwaway Blockbuster season.

The Story...

Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is one of the best practitioners at the art of extraction. He and his team enter people’s minds via their dreams and take what they are hired to steal... for a fee. Having been banished from America, Cobb is unable to resist the chance to return home to his kids and takes on his most dangerous job to date.

However, when dealing with the dark recesses of the mind, Cobb struggles to suppress his own demons, which threaten to undermine his efforts and place everyone involved in great danger.

The team have to build a world that is specifically designed for the task in hand, and yet the rules within which they operate can only do them harm. And then things get really interesting as Nolan builds to an incredibly well-constructed denouement: a quadruple-jeopardy scenario.

The conclusion works even better the more you reflect on it, for this is a film to be deconstructed at your leisure and then rebuilt in your mind for fun.


The Breakdown...

To reveal any more about the story would be a crime in itself, but suffice to say you’ll need to experience the film first hand at the earliest possible opportunity.

Nolan introduces so many ideas and characters that you are left breathless from the opening moments. The film never lets up thereafter with layers of plot being simultaneously added and peeled away with no escape in sight.

Just like the complex structures being developed in the film, we also feel the story playing the same tricks on our mind. It’s only afterwards that you begin to wonder what havoc has been caused on your own subconscious.

With such a great ensemble cast you may be worried that some of the characters could get lost in the mix, but not a bit of it. DiCaprio is excellent as the troubled master thief, and everyone from the superbly antagonistic Eames (Tom Hardy) to the naively brilliant Ariadne (Ellen Page) is fully sketched.

The special effects are flawless but the temptation to focus on these or overuse them is resisted. There are times when the events in the distant background are worthy of a feature film in themselves yet Nolan never loses focus.


The Verdict...

Experiencing this genuine epic, you know you are watching something special. It might be too intricate to be enjoyed as a ‘standard’ blockbuster, but we wouldn’t want a Nolan film to be any different.

It should. I can't wait to see what it's like.

It's apparently meant to be an experience just like Avatar, whether that's true or not I'll find out.

Possibly better than avatar,
in the way i can watch the matrix and such pschological films countless times and find other things in the its vast context to think about and imagine, unlike that avatar is a bit forth with its story and does not make you think to the same degree.

Absolutely seeing it. Everytime I see the trailer I get pumped for it.

Never seen a Nolan film I didn't like... like with Pixar films. Chris is my fav. director.

Hm... because that wasn't Zimmer's music in the trailer. At least, it didn't sound anything like Zimmer to me.

...Maybe it was... but in that case he's taken a serious departure from his normal style.

Im guessing Nolan wanted his soundtrack to be something reminicsent of The Dark Knight OST. I was instantly reminded of that movie when I heard the heavy strings and large horns playing in the trailer.

lol, I HAD to look it up.

...*looks up*...

Ok I was right, it isn't Zimmer, it's a cue scored specifically for the trailer by Zack Hemsey.

Am I the only person who isn't excited?

It seems a decent enough film, but not that amazing to me. I guess I'm just not into such things.

I guess I might watch it at some point, but I'm not going to spend my time and money in the cinema on it.

I guess this might sound pathetic of me but the only reason why I am kinda put off about seeing this movie (again, I will probably watch it) is because Leonardo DiCaprio is in it . I don't really like him but I am also sure that Christopher Nolan will make a very good movie so I am kinda torn right now. I'll probably watch it anyway but I am coming into it with very little expectation.
