You know what was confusing/sloppy? The end sequence with Cobb, Ariadne, Fischer, and Saito.

Completely changed all of the rules that preceded the last 20 minutes because they had to get from point A to B.

that's awesome
I'm glad to see practical effects still getting use instead of film makers relying on CGI

Too bad they couldn't put in any compelling drama or social relevance, either by practical or digital means.

Christopher Nolan Haters(tm) or James Cameron Haters(tm).

I can't decide which group I detest more.

If only it would have had some mention of terrorism it would have been socially relevant and therefore better..

Cracking film btw. Not surprised a smart picture like this attracts some hate - not everyone is up to the task of understanding or appreciating it.

Maybe I'm just asking for trouble, but the movie sets itself up as being a grand thing and I guess I was looking for something that might not even be there. Change one man's psychological hangups and change the world? Didn't Dreamscape already deal with that? It has to be more than that, right?

WONGGGGGG! WONGGGGGG! BLAM! BLAM! WONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! WONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

Where's David Patrick Kelly with nunchucks when you need him?
