Inception

Short Review:

Memento mixed with The Matrix with a dash of James Bond.

Very good popcorn film, but not the "deep meaningful" stuff it's been credited with.



1. Them being young on the train tracks when we know they grow old in limbo seems like a glaring error.

2. Their whole plan seems ill conceived. When Fischer wakes up on a plane surrounded by the five people who have been in his dreams, he'd figure the whole thing out, which means the idea wouldn't take. Remember the fact that he has training in resisting dream incursions means he knows that the dream technology exists, so he'd figure it out.

3. I'm guessing the film makers figure this out and couldn't see a way around it which is why we get the bullshit last 30 seconds of the film where the top may or may not topple over. The top spinning thing is like Carrie's hand coming out of the grave. A great idea in the early 1970s but been done to death by this point. Christ it was done in the Wizard of Oz!
