    That's what I'm thinking. I need to watch this a second time, either it was just me or there were some inconsistencies with the "rules", like how they could bring back Fischer with a "kick" but couldn't with the Japanese guy. Also, how does the dreamer create the Penrose stairs?

    Regardless, I thought it was an amazing movie. The Dark Knight and The Prestige are two of my favorite movies but Nolan really out did himself with Inception. Leo was great as usual and expected even though he plays the same person every movie, Ellen Page was too cute and is gonna be the next big thing, (I have a thing for intelligent and quirky girls) Joseph Gordon-Levitt really shined in his grown up breakthrough role, and Tom Hardy stole every scene he was in and was my favorite. The visuals were amazing, loved the score and I think I speak for everyone when I say the "no gravity" fight scene was sick. Definitely this generation's Matrix.

    I see just about everyone is debating whether the top was gonna fall or not at the end, the top started to wobble right before the credits and it's not supposed to lose any momentum in a dream, it was gonna fall, y'all are over analyzing and gave Nolan exactly what he wanted. :)

    Inconsistencies abound in any movie like this. Why not just shoot Mol in the back of the head rather than go through the entire inception debacle in Limbo? Well, because they wouldn't have a movie I reckon. Why does is the elevator subject to gravity when nothing else was at the moment?
    There is a redux version with more answers in all of this.
    My only complaint was that all the machine guns etc were gratuitous. Smart movie, mindless action not necessary..

    I'm finding it not as enjoyable to watch for repeat viewings.

    Still great but I know what's coming and I'm convinced he's still in Limbo because the spinning top isn't his totem.

    Makes no difference whether it falls or not if it isn't his.
