Wait, whose subconscious are we going through exactly?
So basically: Cobb has been in exile from America for quite some time and Saito, a powerful Japanese businessman, gives him a chance to go back home to his children. He just has to do one thing: take down Saito's competator, Robert Fischer. Cobb has to gather a team of experts to enter into Fischer's mind through dream to plant an idea. Taking things out of dreams, deception, is easy, but inception has only been done once before.
This would have been a fairly ok movie and I wouldn't have as much hatred for it as I do except for how it was reviewed by the media and the general public. All I heard about it this summer was how it was the best movie and and such a mind fuck! My mind was not fucked. I was not confused. At all. At first I was like: I hope this gets a bit more complicated. But it didn't. It was a fairly simple plot and it did nothing to make go "woah!!!!" At all. But, I mean, overall it was a good story, entertaining enough.
I don't think this deserves to be on the list. Not because of my hatred towards it, no, but because it wasn't awesome. At all. I was kind of hoping it would be, but it wasn't. Good for like picking it up for a Saturday night or something, but no. And why is it even this high?!
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
