Inception - the movie

This movie has lot of buzz. Has anyone seen it?

the movie is based on a book by Chris Nolan (the same author of Memento)

From IMDB:
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
 
Yeah I've seen it. I didn't think it was as good as what everyone has been saying. The plot is good and the message is good. But the actions are too fake.. and I was sort of pissed off because of it.

Probably one of the best movies I've seen in a while.. superb story line, intricate plot,..etc Planning to go see it a second time

give an example of an action that was too fake for you
 
It was really intense and riveting. I loved the experience of the film, if not necessarily the entire film, which I still rate highly.

At the beginning of level one. Those bad guys where like 5 feet away from their taxi, surrounding them and spraying at them with assault rifles. There were 5 people in the taxi, and only one of them got shot... I don't know, the bad guys just seemed too crappy to be real. But since it was a dream, I guess it's ok.

But again, I'm not criticizing the movie...

And yeah I saw it at IMax on the first day, but it wasn't 3D

The way I looked at it, and the way they explained them in it in the movie, the bad guys are Cillian Murphy's learned defenses that another extractor had trained him to use.

Later on it's fairly clear when Leo has to tell him to remember his training etc he's not exactly a master of it. In the sense the accuracy of the shooters is a function of the skill level of the victim to defend against extraction. And he's just not that good at it. A lot of bark but no bite. Ken Watanabe gets shot because he's not a pro like the others, the defenses are more successful with him.
