Ever had a dream and in it you want to control the outcome? This is what this movie is about. Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is in the business of controlling dreams. He is great at it, that is getting in and out of the dream state and getting into another persons dream. Now there is this theory that one might be able to change a person mindset by planting a thought in their mind while in a dream state.
Sometimes it is hard to realize if you are in a dream or not. However in this movie you know when the dream state starts and ends. Or maybe by the end of the movie you will question that thought.
I like this movie and would rate it a 7 out of my 10 scale. You see at times the movie seen too long and a thought comes to mind...How long have I been here, it seems like all day....wasn't this movie only 2 hours? Therefore the... I'm bored let's move on thought is present. There is a lot of action and some of it is just mind blogging. Where did these people come from and why are they trying to kill the group and Cobb. The confusion causes a mind warp and it takes away for the movie line and your ability to stay focused.
Now there was some things that where great. Like some of the scenery and special effects. Just like a Dream things just didn't make sense. You know what I mean, When you dream things pop in that your mind says... What is that? or how did that get here?
The Movie is based on Dreaming so that is why I give it a 7. I think it portrayed ones dream well, with a little control in it. The thought of one being able to implant a thought to change ones direction in real life, is a little scary. One leaves to theater with a sense of can that really happen? Oh... the thoughts I thought!
