Gravity (2013)



Critic Consensus: Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is an eerie, tense sci-fi thriller that's masterfully directed and visually stunning.

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.more

Critic Reviews for Gravity

All Critics (306) | Top Critics (53)

A work of techno-art, with images of humbling grandeur and scenes almost painful in the depth of horror they evoke.

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

You don't have to love sci-fi to love Gravity, you just have to love the power of cinema to provide a transcendent experience.

Full Review… | August 5, 2014

One of the greatest man-versus-nature movies in cinematic history.

$90,000,000, a hundred, whatever they spent: this is a taut thriller built for audiences but also one of the most expensive experimental movies ever made. It's a thrill ride, but a work by a visual artist at the extremes of his acuity.

Full Review… | April 8, 2014

The fact that the film touches on spiritual themes at all is worth noting, and makes this film just a little bit more than the thrill ride that all the ads have promised.

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.......''
