Storyline

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. 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. Written by MuTaTeD

Trivia

According to British sound designer Glenn Freemantle, creating sounds for a film set in a soundless environment presented a whole new array of technical challenges. Freemantle used an acoustic guitar rigged with microphones on the outside and hydrophones on the inside. With the guitar immersed in a tub of water, Freemantle created sounds by rubbing and touching various items against the body of the submerged instrument to generate the ethereal sounds heard on the film's soundtrack.

Goofs

After Stone passes the panel where the fire is starting on board the ISS, her hand strikes a drinking pouch of water. The blobs of water are mistaken by some as a stream of air bubbles, as if the visual effect of weightlessness was created using a water tank. That was not the case in this movie. The water drops are computer generated. See more »

Regardless of physics laws broken Gravity pulls you in, start to finish. A must watch.
6 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Firstly I would like to illuminate the vastness and incredible wonderment that is our galaxy. Our Milky Way, is spinning at an amazingly fast rate of 225 kilometers per second. In addition to this, the galaxy is traveling through space at around 300 kilometers per second. This basically means that we are rocketing along at speeds of 530 kilometers per second.. Annually our big old smiley moon moves further from us here on earth by 3.8cm. This is believed to be a result of tidal effects. The energy in the sunlight we see at present came all the way from the Sun's core around 30,000 years ago. This energy spent the vast majority of this time passing through the thick atoms of the sun and only a mere 8 minutes to reach the earth's atmosphere once it had left that fiery ball of fury we call the Sun. Crazy I know, But as Jesse Pinkman of Breaking Bad famously said "Science bi%#!".

Feeling small? Well Gravity initially instills this same feeling and then so much more. Gravity is a wild space roller coaster action film surrounding a major catastrophe caused by space debris colliding with a US satellite and the team left fighting for their lives and the impossible contingency to make it back home safely to earth. And yes whilst many of the physics laws are bent to suit, aesthetically and as a narrative this film is completely worthy of all praises.

Let's start with the casting, with so much resting on Sandra Bullock I will admit I was certainly a skeptic, however I could not fault her performance once you looked past her rather uninspiring career with some terrible "zone out" and "how were they ever funded" sequels and original films such as Speed 2 (one of the lowest rated films on IMDb scoring 3.6/10), Miss Congeniality 2, The Proposal, 2 Weeks Notice, Premonition and Forces of Nature. It was almost enough to make Steven Segal look good, almost. It was for this exact reason I didn't see this in cinemas and am now of course kicking myself harder then Guy Ritchie for both marrying Madonna and helping her make a movie. I digress, Sandra Bullock who plays a hardware engineer encapsulates the character in every aspect and the emphatic feelings are well drawn for her character as you are taken along for the ride with her. Whilst her character realistically would most probably never have been hired by NASA she as a character pulls on the heart strings and makes your heart ache for all she has and will go through. In short I am thrilled Angelina Jolie dropped this role. Mission commander Matt Kowalski played by the sterling silver fox George Clooney (who received the role after Robert Downey Jr pulled out with scheduling conflicts) was perfect for the role and somehow took the geek factor out of the profession and brought a charm, energy and cowboy style to the role and hit the nail head on. He makes it look good and romances space with an impeccable delivery and my only wish was that more was told about his character.

The cinematography which of course is vastly computer generated animation took 4 years for the directors to be happy with and it certainly was worth the wait. Looking down at the looming earth you feel like you are right there and every bump, jump and spin of the astronauts is shared with the audience. The action sequences are epic and the force and pressure are very well designed to give the feeling of complete helplessness in space, where nobody can hear you scream... (Terrible?) The films tag line "Don't let go" is fully incorporated in a visually stunning film which will surely educate and inspire future film greatness.

Watch this movie preferably on the biggest sharpest screen with the best audio possible, Fasten your seat belt, cause planet Earth is going bye bye. I give Gravity 8.9 out of 10.
