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.

Believe the hype: Gravity is as jaw-droppingly spectacular as you've heard - magnificent from a technical perspective but also a marvel of controlled acting and precise tone.

Unfolding as a series of terrifying object lessons in Newtonian physics, the movie lends new meaning to the phrase "spatial geometry."

Gravity is not a film of ideas, like Kubrick's techno-mystical 2001, but it's an overwhelming physical experience -- a challenge to the senses that engages every kind of dread.

Nerve-racking, sentimental and thrilling, Gravity honors terra firma even as it reaches for the stars with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

Cuarón and his cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki, keep the audience in weightless suspension right along with the astronauts. For most of us, Gravity is the closest we will ever get to the real deal.

Gravity, a weightless ballet and a cold-sweat nightmare, intimates mystery and profundity, with that mixture of beauty and terror that the Romantics called the sublime.

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.......''
