Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An astonishment, an engineering feat, and, finally, a folly."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Inception is a boldly constructed wonder with plenty of -- as one character describes it -- "paradoxical architecture.""
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Inception is the best film of the year and one of the best films of the decade, this is Nolan's masterpiece and it is perfect in every regard."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Nolan has cemented himself among the great filmmakers of our time, not only with this film, but with most of his other works as well."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The technical virtuosity pouring from every frame is astounding."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"It's only the latest indication that Christopher Nolan might be the slyest narrative tactician making movies today."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"I found myself admiring the movie's stubborn adherence to its own universe and logic."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Nolan's eyes here were a little too big for his stomach."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Despite its two- and a half-hour length, it flies by and just like a great dream you don't want to wake up from, even after the end credits start, you'll desperately crave five more minutes."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"It's intentionally, thrillingly, disorienting."
‑ Dave White,
"Pretty good, not bad, but brilliant it surely ain't."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Nolan, like Cobb, is an assiduous extractor, and he knows how to wow audiences. But scaling big and thinking big are not the same thing. And dark, just because it's dark, isn't more artistic than light."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"A smart and inventive thriller, this drama is one of the year's best movies."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Ambitious, sure, but ultimately too far-fetched for its own good."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"Flaws aside, there's a lot to like about Inception and Nolan keeps his eye on the ball throughout, offering up a lush treat of a thriller with nerve and wit"
‑ Joshua Starnes,
