I saw this last week but couldn't be bothered to comment on it till now as it was such an un moving and instantly forgettable film.
If it was meant to be thought provoking it failed ,and it certainly wasn't disturbing.
It is entertaining in part , but even the visual effect fail to capture the imagination.
I wont say its not worth seeing , but in the history of film I would place it no where.
Haven't seen it but the trailers on TV suggest it has a lot of CGI. I suppose if you are in to modern video games you take this in your stride but to me it seems totally unrealistic with all those over-the-top explosions and unbelievable action sequences. I find myself always distracted by thinking 'I know how they did that'. Even before a film is released there is usually a docu. on the making of the film (which you don't have to watch I hear you say) Spoils the escapism of the cinema.
DiCaprio in CGI Wonderland meets Ashes to Ashes. Shame, as there were some great actors and acting (despite the storyline) in the film. It seems that action movies are now the “prequel” to the consul game.
I saw this on Tuesday and loved it. Pure escapism and I liked the complexity of layering the dreams and reality...
I'm not really a blockbuster type cinemagoer but IMHO I thought it was mostly well written - it's just a victim of it's own hype. I also think a lot of the special effects will lose a bit of their impact on the small screen.

Did it leave you Dazed and Confused?
One in five cinemagoers buying a ticket for Christopher Nolan's brain-bender Inception, we're told, is going to see it for a second or even third time.
Apparently this is an illustration of something called Lerdahl's Law: the film has so mashed the swedes of its audience that they have to go back in the hope of figuring out what the hell was going on.
