Movie Info

Gravity stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space. -- (C) Warner Bros.

With its themes of spirituality, religion, birth, rebirth and hope, Gravity is a film that will move audiences in different ways. That's the beauty of it; it transcends genres, generations and time, a modern classic.

A survival drama set almost entirely in the unfathomable abyss of outer space, Gravity is something now quite rare -- a truly popular big-budget Hollywood movie with a rich aesthetic pay-off.

It is a big, bold picture that refuses to be timid, and it left me trembling. It's not just a film; it's something that happens to you.

So it was good, if a bit jarring, to feel myself shrink at the film's beginning, when I found myself floating above the surface of the earth for a little while in absolute silence.

The CGI is flawless, and the beautiful shot construction is staggering.

April 23, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

This is a story about people floating through space, and Alfonso Cuarón's feature brilliantly contrives to make the viewer feel similarly untethered, to often thrilling effect. This is surely the closest cinema comes to three-dimensional virtual abseiling.

Audience Reviews for Gravity

In space no one can hear you snore..most overrated film of the year..surprisingly zero tension,couldn't have cared any less for the 2 characters..Bullock isn't interesting enough to carry an entire film & Clooney is as bland as always..would've been more interesting if they'd put the Chuckle brothers up there.

Devastatingly terrible. Not a moment throughout the film that I rejoiced. Nor did it succeed to make me care about any of its couple of characters. Actual Rating: -5/5

An exhilarating theatre experience, but upon reflection, it feels like the phenomenal second half of a truly epic 150 minute sci-fi drama. In the end, it leaves you out of breath, inspired, yet thinking: ''That was awesome, but imagine.......''
