Roland Suso Richter's psychological thriller The I Inside stars Ryan Phillippe as a man who, as the film opens, becomes involved in a terrifying accident that leaves him unable to remember the last two years of his life. As if the protagonist being unable to recognize his wife (Piper Perabo), and learning that his brother (Robert Sean Leonard) has died, were not bad enough, dreams of a woman (Sarah Polley) he once loved come to him regularly. The hero must negotiate the terrain between fact and fiction in order to figure out what happened to his life. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
I completely disagree with the other reviews here. I was very satisfied with this film. I found it to be suspenseful without the gore and suprising without being cliche and trendy.
I don't see how this movie was hard to follow, nor do I see how this movie failed to come together in the end. I was very impressed with it's subtle foreshadows and mind twisters.
But then, I'm not very in on movies that take your hand through it. I'm more of a reader than a movie buff. I don't own a television and there is a reason for that. (Movies can be watched on a laptop.) So you may not agree with me.
If you prefer something that doesn't let your creativity run along side it ... if you prefer being able to talk through scenes and not having to follow a story line ... well, you may not like it.
But I call this art. I was impressed.
I love mind-job movies like this. This one reminded me of Vanilla Sky, but wasn't quite as good. It was definitely worth the watch.... oh, and you have to watch it several times in order to follow everything. A pretty good flick over all.
If you like dumb action or romance movies, this movie is not for you. But if you watched "Momento" and kinda like it, you would love to watch "The I Inside". A lot of puzzles, great idea, and total wrong predictions. The ending is not so good as it could be. It seems like "they" left some space for continue...
