A real mind-blowing experience featuring Hans Zimmer at his best with an awesome dream-like score. Great character development for the protagonist. Awesome effects. You might need a second watch as it is quite a fast-paced movie. I also recommend watching the animated prequel if you enjoyed it. It's definitely not for everyone, but it worked very well for me. My personal favorite.

For a giant blockbuster summer movie Inception is audacious as hell. The final extended dreams-within-dreams sequence is just stunningly put together.

I don't buy the whole no heart bit. One, its largely an action movie, so simply by the conventions of the genre you are asking a lot if you expect the kind of character development you get in a traditional drama movie. Look at all the action movies in the IMDB Top 50 for that category. Star Wars is a great example. Wooden acting and predictable character development.

Two, the character development IS pretty good. Now not every character is given a 10-minute backstory and a flashback underlining for you all their motivations as a character (do you really think it would have helped the film?). But the central characters, Cobb, Ariadne, and Mal, are very well-developed, have interesting stories, and have their stories told in a compelling way.

Some of you are holding this movie to unrealistic standards and ignoring its genre, which doesn't necessarily focus on fleshing out every single detail of every single character.
