Gravity Quick Film Review

Posted: October 15, 2013 in Movies

Gravity is the story of two astronauts stranded in space. They’re on a mission to repair the Hubble Telescope when debris from a Russian satellite sets off a chain reaction and debris strikes they’re space shuttle and sends the two Astronauts, played by George Clooney and Sandra Bullock reeling off into outer space. The rest of the movie involves trying to get back to safety.

There are actually a few other characters up in space with them but they die really fast, leading to one pretty good scare. Most of the reason it’s a good scare is because I completely wasn’t expecting it.

The outer space cinematographic is fantastic, showing the Earth from orbit, they’re view of sunrise and sunset, walking in space and occasional POV shots of the astronauts. I didn’t know it was in 3D also and the 3D effects are better than usual.

Given the fantastic premise, I didn’t find it as nail bitingly suspenseful as I think I should have. Maybe it was just me. It was still pretty good though. I wondered how come Clooney’s space suit had a jet pack and Bullock’s didn’t. Also Clooney remained totally cool through the entire situation, never breaking a sweat while stranded in space.

It’s pretty interesting when you find out what Gravity is really about regarding the characters. All in all it’s a pretty good film worth seeing in theaters.

On a humorous note, a friend and I were joking about one of the other characters in the movie that die off. The only time you see his face have of it it missing because he got hit by debris. Imagine being that actor. You get to tell your mom your in a Hollywood movie with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, Then the move comes out and only half your face is in it lol

    Probably the most visually stunning movie I’ve seen since Avatar, which is really saying something. Good review.
