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.

It's the very definition of a thriller, from the mysterious locale to the unpredictably tumultuous events containing no hope of survival.

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.

It is exhilarating film-making, engineered with dizzying invention, and it combines commanding 3D digital effects -- some of the best I've ever seen -- with a surprisingly soulful touch.

Gravity becomes a character study driven by a riveting central performance and a radical thrill ride delivered with near real-time urgency which thrusts you through its implausibilities.

Beautiful and poetic, the image of small humans in fathomless space is also elegiac and eventually frightening.

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.

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

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.

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.
March 26, 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.

One of the best science fiction movies in years.

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.

The single most stressful two hours you can have in a movie theatre - in the best possible way.

What could easily have been a dull practice in CGI is crafted by Alfonso Cuaron in to a journey for survival and learning how to cherish life...

We've seen films set in outer space before, but nothing has ever felt this real.

A sleek, smooth, immersive, and rather overwhelming spectacle of economy, efficiency, and all-around proficiency.
