Gravity

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star as two lone astronauts stranded in the terrifying expanse of space after satellite debris wipes out their shuttle. Winner of seven Academy Awards, including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men).

Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is on her first shuttle mission while Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) is in command of his last flight before retiring. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes and the shuttle is destroyed leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone – tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. All links to Earth are lost and their oxygen supply gradually empties. As panic sets in, the pair realise the only way home may be to go further out...

Reviews & comments

The spectacle has everyone in a spin over Gravity but aside from its stunning visuals there is nothing much on offer here.

one of the worst films I've seen in years ...

Amazing effects combined with a ridiculous story drive the viewer to fast-forward through the last one-third film as life is too short. Not even the endearing Sandra Bullock can save it.

Over Hyped

With all the hype from people and reviews about this movie I was expecting it to be fabulous. Well the only thing fabulous about this movie was the ending. Sandra Bullocks body is hot. The rest of the movie was ice cold and far fetched. The only gravity i felt was my attention slowly disappearing into space.

Technically impressive, lacks clout

Indeed a technical feat, and tense for the most, but I didn't get into it much at all - just didn't find myself invested, and instead distracted by the artifice.

Houston in the Blind

All the hype leans toward Gravity scooping the Oscars next year, best film, best actresses and more. Now, I not one for hype but I had to check this movie out. The verdict. I liked it. It was the first time (for me) that a space odyssey type movie has come out that let the audience experience the loneliness, despair and expanse of space and from the...

Gravity

Alfonso Cuaron's follow-up to the fantastic post-apocalyptic sci-fi Children of Men received critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival. James Cameron naming it "the best space movie ever". While maybe not as great as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gravity is an exhilarating science-fiction thriller. Alfonso Cuaron is a director to definitely...

In A Class Of Its Own

This is the most amazing,suspenseful,gripping movie that I have seen for a long time.Only two actors,no action,not much story but Wow,it delivers something not seen before.It is best seen on the big screen and in 3D. I am of to see it again,it is that good.

Not for those with claustraphobia or vertigo

I thoroughly enjoyed this mix of chick flick and action movie (a strange marriage at any time). The FX are seriously impressive and Sandra is her empathetic best. Mr Clooney's character is just a little overcooked in my view but given the limited cast (2 + small number of disembodied voices) this is a captivating movie.

Visually Impressive

Visuals alone give it 5 stars (must see it in 3D), story line was pretty standard I thought but very watchable.

The director’s long-overdue follow-up to “Children of Men” is at once a nervy experiment in blockbuster minimalism and a film of robust movie-movie thrills, restoring a sense of wonder, terror and possibility to the bigscreen.

This isn’t just the best-looking film of the year, it’s one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema. So it’s a shame that – as is so often the case with groundbreaking effects movies – the emotional content can’t quite match up to the visual.

The film thrums with an ongoing existential dread. And yet, tellingly, Cuaron's film contains a top-note of compassion that strays at times towards outright sentimentality.

At once the most realistic and beautifully choreographed film ever set in space, Gravity is a thrillingly realized survival story spiked with interludes of breath-catching tension and startling surprise.

Gravity asks for nothing more than your surrender. Be seated, don your 3D glasses (and 3D is its medium), and let it unfold. No prior knowledge required.
