I watched this on, you've guessed it, Sky Movies. I was looking forward to it on the basis it has won awards and has been given a lot of praise. It has also seemed to have been a big blockbuster film, but...

Never see a film that wins awards. They are always rubbish films. This one was too bizarre. Don't get me wrong, I like a bit of wierdness in films, I mean Harry Potter isn't exactly portraying a normal everyday life situation is it? But, this went too far. I do see why it appeals to some people but I'd advise you to watch other films rather than this one.

It's too strange, so strange it confuses you and the order it's in makes it harder to grasp and harder to be interested in. I'm not really a big Leonardo DiCaprio man either, I'd rather watch a Tom Cruise film or a Will Smith film for example, DiCaprio doesn't really have enough personality or charm for me as a main character, not in this film anyway.

However, if you are interested in the workings of the human mind and like over- the- top strange films then I'd advise you to watch it. It has lots of special effects too, which probably improve it as it looks real and pretty cool to be honest. Plus there is a decent amount of action in there too, but if you're like me and you like action films like Die Hard, James Bond and others like Firewall and Red Eye I'd warn you off it, as it isn't action like that- more fantasy action like Journey To The Centre Of The Earth, but more adult and serious.

In conclusion, I'd give what I saw of it before giving up a 5/10. Poor. Particularly given the expectations going into this film. Inception Trailer.
