...[a] wondrous package of technological achievement. The human feelings of hopelessness and the instinctual need to exist in the madness of fear and frustration is the calling card that really gives this game-changing gem its captivating conviction

It is complex and profound without being pretentious or pedantic. In fact, if anything, its simplicity highlights the film's depth and study in contrasts. I thought it was a moving, beautiful, unique movie.

It's got all the spectacle that your average audience wants to see, but also has enough thought and artistry to satisfy the true cinephile as well.

Gravity really is the closest 99.99% of us will ever get to being in space, and it was beautiful.

The screenwriters fill this chamber piece in space with loads of sentimentality.

The searing action is never repetitive, and every frame is inspired. I'll pay to see this thrilling and wonderfully realized survival adventure again because the visual elements,... made the film taunt with breath-catching tension.

What makes this by far the best film of the year is not the haiku-like storyline or Stone's heart-stopping scramble... but the tears. Gravity is one of the most outrageously emotionally manipulative films I have ever seen.

Those of us who have never traveled beyond the earth's atmosphere -- hell, maybe even those who have -- will be easily convinced that Cuaron's outer space is the real deal.

It's horrifying (and gorgeous), and you'll be thankful you're planted securely in your theater seat.

This certain best-picture nominee sounds almost as good as it looks.

It's an amazing feat of filmmaking, but where Cuarón should have applied similar elbow grease was on the script.

The hype for Cuarón's ambitious Gravity has been . . . well . . . out of this world. Critics have fallen over themselves praising the film and I went into the theater expecting very big things indeed. I hate to say this, but I didn't love it.

Gravity should be getting award consideration in several categories. Its spectacular cinematography creates a powerful juxtaposition between the sublime beauty of the cosmos and its powerful isolation.

Cuaron keeps his film as realistic as it can get. No melodrama, no far-fetched stylised action scenes or convenient plot twists. The film stays unpredictable till the end.

I adore this movie on every level...

Whatever is achieved here visually is never really matched by a profound narrative.

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.

August 16, 2017
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.
July 14, 2016
Gravity is less a feature film than cinema as experience: a new frontier in filmmaking that will appeal to studios trying to attract people to movie theaters.
