'Inception' is a mind-bending science fiction film

See also



Fans of science fiction films are accustomed to seeing representatives of their favorite genre in the special effects and costume categories of the Oscars, but rarely on the list of Best Picture nominees. This year's "Gravity" is an exception, as is the 2010 film "Inception." Whereas "Gravity," explores the dangers of outer space, "Inception" imagines the pitfalls in exploration of cerebral space.

In "Inception," Dom Cobb (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief who specializes in stealing secrets from inside a person's subconscious. Dom is haunted by memories of his dead wife, Mal (played by Marion Cotillard). He is asked by Saito (played by Ken Watanabe) to put an idea into someone's head, rather than taking one out. This is called inception, and it is very dangerous, especially since Dom's memories of Mal already make the team's missions dangerous.

"Inception" has a great screenplay written Christopher Nolan, who directed the film. It earned an Academy Award nomination. The story is very complicated and not always easy to follow, but it is always interesting and thought-provoking.

This film won a well-deserved Oscar for its special effects. It has some great scenes where characters are able to float through the air, as well as some impressive scenes in slow motion. Some of these scene may remind people of scenes from "The Matrix."

This movie has some of the most stunning action scenes in any film of the last several years. One of these scenes is a fight in a rotating hallway. This is an original and well-crafted scene.

"Inception" is one of the best science fiction films so far this decade.
