With Inception coming out soon, I went over to sites Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, and looked it up. Right now on both sites, they are holding a whopping 100%. Now I know all the reviews haven’t come in yet, but damn that’s pretty great. Here are some of the early reviews:
Box Office Magazine:
“In terms of sheer originality, ambition and achievement, Inception is the movie of the summer, the movie of the year and the movie of our dreams.”
“If Inception is a metaphysical puzzle, it’s also a metaphorical one: It’s hard not to draw connections between Cobb’s dream-weaving and Nolan’s filmmaking — an activity devoted to constructing a simulacrum of reality, intended to seduce us, mess with our heads and leave a lasting impression. Mission accomplished.”
“With physics-defying, thunderous action, heart-wringing emotion and an astonishing performance from DiCaprio, Nolan delivers another true original: welcome to an undiscovered country.”
The Hollywood Reporter:
“In a summer of remakes, reboots and sequels comes Inception, easily the most original movie idea in ages.”
Man…now I can’t wait to see it!
