Abstract:

Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible--inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

One idea inside another idea

by Biotech (WorldCat user published 2012-09-03) Excellent Permalink

Inception takes dream to a whole new level: stealing a person's thoughts while they're sleeping. The process is called Extraction. That's just one of many ideas swirling around in the plot. In all, an impressive multifaceted thriller.

Inception

by TTWiL (WorldCat user published 2011-02-25) Excellent Permalink

A great movie, but not for those with low intelligence. A very complex plot with a crucial ending. If you pay close attention to the totems you'll figure out the ending.

Great movie for a sci-fi enthusiast

by breadmarket (WorldCat user published 2011-02-02) Good Permalink

The movie was enjoyable, however I feel as though they tried to sqeese too much into a short time frame, it feels like the film starts in the middle; the producers assume that the viewer has some prior knowledge about the ideas presented, those who don't are left to figure it out themselves.
