Fantastic; simply mind-bending fun.

Christopher Nolan has delivered a movie that seems as if it should be more confusing than it actually is.

Inception tells the story of corporate espionage by way of stealing ideas from people's dreams.

Leonardo DiCaprio headlines a stellar cast including Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy and Michael Cain.

Watanabe hires DiCaprio to plant an idea inside the mind of his competitor (Murphy) in order to bring about his collapse. This is called Inception.

DiCaprio assembles a team to pull of the extremely tricky ploy. However, he has some personal baggage that might spell the doom for the entire project and the lives of his team as well.

The logistics and implementation of this movie are things that you just have to watch. It's a case where seeing is better than explaining.

Throughout the film I was on the edge of the possibility that I might go into confusion but it never happened. Writer/director Nolan kept me well informed and entirely entertained.

This is a movie well worth multiple viewings. (Nevermind the ending...)
