The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
One of the new additions to Cobb's team of extractors. Eames plays the role of the Forger who can replicate the image and voice of someone else onto himself while within a dream.
Eames is met by Cobb in Mombassa and is recruited to be the teams Forger, who can deceive and manipulate the dreamer's mind by perfectly disguising himself as another person. He seems to know Cobb and Arthur from other jobs but their background isn't discussed besides how Eames playfully teases Arthur as a "stick-in-the-mud" and agrees with Cobb's idea of inception. Eames is needed for the inception job that Saito offered because for inception to work the idea must come from true inspiration and they need to trick Fischer (the target or "the mark") into diving his father's empire by manipulating the relationship between the father and son. Eames proposes they do this by using Fischer's God father, Browning, and manipulate his intentions (in-dream) from trust to greed, thus making Fischer believe his father wanted him to make his own decisions.
