I've heard of that film but I don't think I've ever seen it.

No big spoilers but just in case anyone who hasn't seen it yet doesn't want to know some of the other possible influences I felt were present

It's from that perspective that I don't find it wildly original - but then such ideas have never been bolted onto an action filled heist movie so that is a slightly different variation on the theme. Which helps to add some blockbuster-y goodness to the film.

I believe Nolan himself has also stated pre-release that he was influenced by The Matrix, The Thirteenth Floor and James Bond also.

I imagine Bond enters the equation in the action side and that would certainly seem the case with one of the action sequences of the finale.
