October 3, 2013
A wildly suspenseful zero-g tale of survival 350 miles beyond the ozone layer, Alfonso Cuarón's space saga is emotionally jolting - and physically jolting, too.
October 3, 2013
Yet Gravity also has an emotional and spiritual depth that, like 127 Hours, another film about man versus isolation, transcends what might at first seem a gimmicky plot device.
October 3, 2013
In one form or another, motion pictures have been with us since the middle of the 19th century, but there's never been one like "Gravity."
October 3, 2013
"Gravity" must be seen in theaters to be appreciated; the prospect of watching this movie on anything less than a 40-foot screen is tantamount to listening to Beethoven through a tin can and a string.
October 3, 2013
Even as it looks to the heavens, "Gravity" is bound to earth, where the beauty is in the details.
October 3, 2013
Gravity's great gift to the viewer is that it gives outer space back its beauty, terror, and wonder.
October 3, 2013
Gravity into a thing of transcendent beauty and terror. It's more than a movie. It's some kind of miracle.
October 3, 2013
The visual splendor of "Gravity" is more than a matter of execution; it's also one of imagination.
October 3, 2013
It's a relief to see an unconventional big-budget studio movie that doesn't hew to the same old pounding action beats, or person-to-person physical violence.
October 3, 2013
Not since 2001: A Space Odyssey has a film so vividly and realistically transmitted the feeling of being lost in the cosmos.
October 3, 2013
Wow.
October 3, 2013
That rarest of breeds: the intellectual blockbuster.
October 3, 2013
In a little more than 90 minutes [it] rewrites the rules of cinema as we have known them.
October 3, 2013
Watch this film on the biggest screen you can find, in 3D IMAX if possible - not to be overwhelmed by its noise and effects, but to join its smart, soulful heroine on her incredible journey and to experience the size of its quietness.
October 3, 2013
Right from the start, Cuaron aims for the moon - and hits it.

If nothing else, Gravity makes the case for throwing immense resources at true visionaries; the blockbuster craftsman as adventurer, Cuarón expertly blends the epic with the intimate.
October 2, 2013
The movie's an astonishingly detailed, visually painstaking state-of-the-art production that advances what the cinema can show us-even as the human story at its center feels a little thin after a while.
October 2, 2013
And it must be said upfront: This experience needs to be taken in on the biggest, IMAX-iest screen possible
October 2, 2013
If our exploration of space emerged from imagination, science and the spark of inspiration, the extraordinary "Gravity" uses those same tools to craft a movie that might correctly be called a thrill ride with a brain.

Accept Gravity as pure, popcorn-munching show business fun and nothing else, and you won't go away disappointed. Leave logic at the concession stand.
