Actually, it was a sci-fi, an action, and a heist film aside from being a thriller... a psychological thriller at that. It might not have had fleshed-out characters aside from Cobb, but that's not because it was poorly written... it's just that it simply wasn't the point of the film. Regarding what the point actually was, Inception actually does a masterful job in both its narrative and execution.
If the "Film of the Year" label pertains to a personal standard, I don't think it's premature considering I already consider it to be amongst the best I've ever seen.
It might actually be the best I've ever seen. That's going to depend on repeated viewings though, but it's quite a possibility,.
