PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
A thief, who steals corporate secrets through use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
Cillian Murphy (Robert) doubles for a young Maurice Fischer (with glasses and a mustache) in the bedside photo.
He was delirious but asked for you by name. Show him...
Japanese Security Guard: He was carrying nothing but this...
Japanese Security Guard: And this...
Saito: Are you here to kill me?
When Arthur blows up the elevator in the free-fall sequence, the fire billows away up the elevator shaft. However in free-fall, convection does not occur and therefore fire neither billows nor rises. (It goes without saying that this would have been an extremely challenging effect to film in actual free-fall.)
The movie title never appears in the beginning of the movie, but appears three times during the end credits. Once at the beginning, again after the main actors and developers, and once more at the very end.
