Here is just a small selection of the pre-screening reviews that are pouring in from critics. I've tried to avoid spoilers - but you never know. So far they are over the moon with superlatives for this wonderful movie :totalhappy:

I will say this now, without reservation and fully confident that many will agree; Inception is easily the best big budget film of the year thus far. I’ll go further and say that it’s one of the most beautiful, well written, and fully realized high dollar films of the last five years. Inception, is close to perfection.

If movies are shared dreams, then Christopher Nolan is surely one of Hollywood's most inventive dreamers, given the evidence of his commandingly clever "Inception." Applying a vivid sense of procedural detail to a fiendishly intricate yarn set in the labyrinth of the subconscious, the writer-director has devised a heist thriller for surrealists, a Jungian's "Rififi," that challenges viewers to sift through multiple layers of (un)reality. As such, it's a conceptual tour de force unlikely to rank with Batman at the B.O., though post-"Dark Knight" anticipation and Leonardo DiCaprio should still position it as one of the summer's hottest, classiest tickets.

Bottom Line: A devilishly complicated, fiendishly enjoyable sci-fi voyage across a dreamscape that is thoroughly compelling.

We will have to wait a bit before calling Inception for Oscar. There are still some open-ended questions about whether critics will embrace it, audiences will flock to it, or if its “genre” is outside the scope of what the Academy yearns for. If it were me, it would be an easy call as one of the ten best pictures of the year, maybe even of the last ten.

Very happy to see such awesome early INCEPTION reviews starring the wonderful, sweet, and funny star of SUPER, Ellen Page.

i loved this movie! under my point of view it deserves an excellent qualification! Under the fenomenal direction of Christopher Nolan, a fantastic idea is developed into a fantastic movie, with all the ingredients to have total exit in the Academy Awards. This film maked me know Ellen Page, brilliant in the film and giving a huge step in his welcomed career.
