Early "Inception" Reviews

I woke up today to find that nearly all of my commonly visited entertainment websites had a review up for Chris Nolan's latest film, apparently the embargo just ended.

Be warned, the following each have some spoilers, although nothing that really isn't already known from the trailers.

Pure cinema at its best feels like dreaming with your eyes wide open. Cinema doesn't get much purer than INCEPTION.

Inception is a masterpiece. Making a huge film with big ambitions, Christopher Nolan never missteps and manages to create a movie that, at times, feels like a miracle. And sometimes it doesn't even feel like a movie; while presented in woefully retro 2D, Inception creates a complete sense of immersion in another world.

...suffice it to say that "Inception" is an exhilarating cinematic experience that suggests there is still room, even in the blockbuster world, for big ideas and dangerous emotions, and that may be the single most thrilling thing about it.

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. Iíll go further and say that itís one of the most beautiful, well written, and fully realized high dollar films of the last five years. Inception, is close to perfection.

For the past several months I've thought that Inception would be my favorite movie of the summer, but now it looks like it might be everyone's favorite movie.

Anyone seen a negative or even lukewarm review for Inception yet? I'd be curious to read it.
