As engrossing and logic-resistant as the state of dreaming it seeks to replicate, Christopher Nolan's audacious new creation demands further study to fully absorb the multiple, simultaneous stories Nolan finagles into one narrative experience. --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
This is a deeply felt work of art in the form of a big, brassy movie-movie. --Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian
From the Manufacturer
This Time, the Dream is Real
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, Inception is a complex sci-fi thriller that takes you around the globe and into the world of dreams. At the center of the action is ace extractor and international fugitive Dominic Cobb. He is given a chance to redeem himself and regain his life by taking on one final mission, but this time the tables are turned. Instead of stealing a dream, he has to implant one. A smart and original mystery movie, Inception will keep you in suspense from start to finish.
As of 2015, Inception is one of the top 50 highest grossing films of all time.
It took Christopher Nolan 10 years to write the screenplay for the movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed all but one of his own stunts during the fight scene in the spinning hallway.
The only characters in the film who call Cobb by his first name are his wife, Mal, and father-in-law, Miles.
The role of Arthur was originally intended for Heath Ledger before his untimely death.
- Winner of four Oscars: Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects
- Featuring an all-star cast and first-rate story telling
- Two-disc Blu-ray edition contains tons of must-see bonus material
- Also available in wide-screen DVD format

Top Customer Reviews
Inception, like Total Recall and The Matrix, is about perception. The audience is never sure what reality is because the protagonist isn't sure what's real. There are clues providing evidence for the real/not real theories, but the best movies of this type don't come down on one side or another. Total Recall ultimately had enough clues indicating the "right" way. The Matrix stumbled after it made it clear that reality was fiction, thereby losing an audience who enjoyed the tantalizing mystery. Like so many mysteries, once the truth was revealed it wasn't quite as exciting as we all hoped. Inception wisely avoids providing answers.
Inception is also a thought experiment. The central conceit of Inception is that once you put a thought in someone's head it's like a virus, incapable of being removed. In fact, attempting to not think about the idea causes the mind to just focus on it more. This concept, a key tenet of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), is part of how our brains are wired. Director Chris Nolan knows exactly what he's doing when the characters explain the premise. It is the key argument between Cobb and his wife Mal (Marion Cotillard): is this life just a dream?
Once you get it into your head as to which of them is right, Inception burrows into your psyche and you see all the evidence you need to reinforce the idea. There are enough discrepancies to suspect that Cobb's stuck in a dream, but there are enough rules defining reality that indicate otherwise. Unless, of course, you believe that Cobb is fooling himself by making up said rules to convince himself he's not in a dream when he actually is. If that sounds confusing, Inception's done its job.
Inception is a little too long in places, testing the viewer's patience as it delves four levels deep into the subconscious, each with different timeframes, settings, and plots. Part of the fun is watching the movie again to look for clues that reinforce what we secretly thought we knew all along.
Me? I'm convinced I know the truth. But then maybe Inception put that idea in my head.
Those types of comments can be helpful. But saying the movie is shyte, or saying "I hate it" or "it sucks" is not very helpful.
I liked this movie because it was not like anything I have seen before. I thought it was exciting and engaging, the story really pulled me in, and held me tight, never letting go until the credits rolled. Lots of good action and effects, but the STORY and the acting is what separates this movie from other, lesser flicks. The performances were fantastic, I am not a huge DiCaprio fan, but he has done some great work here.
I watched this movie with my mom (66 yrs old), and my cousin (18 yrs old), and I am 42. We all loved it....if this movie can appeal to 3 different "generations" and both genders, they must be doing something right!
Great flick, great story, great acting, great effects, what else are you looking for?
As for the Steelbook, the packaging is great. It includes 2 Blu-ray discs, one being the Movie and the Other Special Features. Digital copy is included as a download and not on DVD. However, a DVD version of the film is included so you can watch on any DVD player.
