Inception: The Shooting Script

I was given copies of three movie-based books to review: Inception: The Shooting Script, Red Riding Hood, and Cowboys and Aliens. What I thought the books were going to be was a novel adaptation of the films, all of which I have seen; what I got, however, was entirely different, but also pretty cool.

Inception is a crazy movie to begin with, so to read the script was a little confusing; I would recommend seeing the movie first. By now most of you know the plot, but basically it has to do with planting an idea inside one's mind - i.e., the idea of "inception." Leo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and more star in the movie, and it was one of the more interesting films of 2010 (see my review here).

I would say the book is geared towards those who are huge fans of the movie. It has a lot of drawings and initial ideas that were used for the movie, which I thought was interesting since I've already seen the film. If I had not seen the movie, I probably would have been a bit confused, since Inception is a hard movie to understand just from reading the script. Because I have already seen the film, though, I was able to link what I was reading on the page with the scenes from it.
