Inception: A Mayor Koch Review

Posted: Updated:

Hype, hype, hype, is what we have here. Inception is all about dreams and the control of dreams in others to accomplish some criminal purpose. From the first frame to the last, I watched the movie unfold and thought: Why did the critics give this junk their highest ratings? It does not hold a candle to the Matrix series, except for the special effects, which are spectacular, but which never touch your emotions.

There are a number of good actors in the film -- including its star, Leonardo DiCaprio -- all of whom, regrettably, walk through the picture without leaving an imprint.
