If you look at this movie as a whodunnit, yes, its ending proves disappointing.

However, the themes of obsession and jealousy are at its core. In that light, this ending is brilliant and shows what rivalry can do to people.

Perhaps the reveal could have been a bit more graceful, making it seem less convoluted, but I think that would take away from the shock its has at the end.

I really think very few directors besides Nolan could pull this off.

When I first saw this movie, I couldn't stop thinking about it for almost two days following it. THAT is the mark of a truly great film. For those that like this sort of film, the word mesmerizing seems apt to describe its effect.

"I just can't get over the sense of feeling cheated by the insertion of science/fantasy as the pivotal plot point -- an alien invasion would have seemed just as out of place." Quite how i feel...

It's almost like there was two different movies in the same picture. One was telling you magic was all an illusion and other was telling you many things are possible. I could have done without the Tesla bits and the final twist because the rest of it was excellent. Those elements just didn't work for me.

Movie is ok but it throws too many hints throughout the story to guess what's the big twist coming, making it too predictable to be a mistery movie. Maybe if it was a bit shorter and had less clues jammed down your throat it could be much better

Great movie.

A common complaint is that the mystery is unsolvable without watching the entire film. You get to the last final couple minutes and are bombarded with all the answers, without being given enough hints to work it out yourself.

Having watched the movie a second time, I can assure you that the hints are indeed there. There are more than a handful of clues spread across the entire movie. Sure, it might be a little difficult to figure out what is going on by yourself, but I would argue that it is most certainly possible.

Probably the most underrated Nolan movie. Definitely worth watching.

That could be considered a spoiler @Veterok. Don't read further than this comment if you haven't seen the film.

FWIW, I twigged it, but still enjoyed it.

I liked the movie and Bale was indeed amazing. But the body cloning device is just a fairytale. No science-fiction or logic is involved here. I was very disappointed at this.

Had a great time watching this movie. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale were great opponents and I also loved Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Andy Serkis and others.

The whole story was really entertaining and interesting and I have to say I also really like the ending.

I watched it multiple times and read the book.
- This is one of the best book adaptations I've ever watched if not the best (haven't read LoTR).
- It is like a magic trick that the movie, in a broad strokes, draws the contours from the start. You have to watch it multiple times to enjoy it fully. Because, the build up enhances the thrill, and it is, imho, nearly impossible to spot all the details in one sitting.
- Even if you spot everything, I advise you to read the book and rewatch it to get additional details and appreciate how the movie dealt with adaptation.

The melodramtic dialogue and maguffins (i.e. the female characters) aside, it's a good film. I like the central conflict, and several moments genuinely surprised me.

I actually really liked the sci-fi element. I didn't see it as a cheap and lazy plot device, but rather a spot of magic realism that nods to that little part of you that wishes for such magic to be possible.

I also think that it was relevant to the context of the setting. spoiler
