The movie “Inception” is a welcome surprise from what has become a sea of indistinguishable and trite offerings from Hollywood. Part of its greatness is Leonardo DiCaprio (Dom Cobb), who gives one of the best performances of his career, assuring his placement on the celeb “A” list for a very long time. When Inception ended, it felt as if I had only been in the theater for just a few minutes rather than two and a half hours. Its endless plots and sub plots combined with the numerous twists and turns will have you wanting to see it multiple times in order to find new details. All of the elements come together perfectly in the movie to create a genuinely compelling, suspenseful and thought-provoking summer blockbuster that succeeds viscerally as well as intellectually. Spoiling Inception is near impossible without writing out a manual to explain what those spoilers mean, but regardless, I will only give you a brief summary. The main character Dom Cobb is a well trained and highly dangerous thief. He is by far the best at what he does, which is the extremely dangerous art of extraction. Extraction is stealing treasured secrets from people deep inside their subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is most exposed to new ideas. Cobb's rare ability to achieve extraction inside someone’s mind has made him a very valuable person in the world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him a wanted criminal in the USA and several other countries, and cost him everything he loved in his life. Then, Cobb is offered a job that will change his life back to what it was before, and restore his broken credibility. This one last job could give him everything he wants, but only if he can accomplish what s considered by everyone in his world to be impossible-inception. The idea is to not steal an idea, but give one. If done correctly, it would be the crime of all crimes. But no amount of careful contemplation or skill can prepare this team for the dangers in store. It’s an enemy like no other, an enemy that seems to know there every move. An enemy that only one man could have seen coming. Cobb.

Wow.  The movie was amazing, but your review is even better.  You know, I was going to write a review on Inception too, but there is NO WAY I'm going to top yours. 

I would love it if you could take a look at some of my poems.  thanks.
