For once in my life I agree with something Entertainment Weekly said about a movie.
I loved this movie. I love all Christopher Nolan movies! But Inception was missing something.
People compare it to The Matrix. While Inception is mind-bending like The Matrix, it's missing The Matrix's sense of humor, romance, and one-liners.
As the book Audition says, many actors (and directors) think that romance is weak. But love is the strongest human emotion, nothing "weak" about it.
An A+ movie has, what I like to call, "moments." You leave the movie thinking, "I love the part where Trinity appears and holds the gun to his head and says, 'dodge this.'" My ONE and ONLY complaint about Inception was that it was void of moments.
