Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (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
Kowalski estimates they have 90 minutes before the debris field completes an orbit and threatens them again. That's not at all how things in orbit work. The original Russian satellite traveled in its own (presumably low-Earth-orbit). Assume it exploded with great force. The debris by definition would be sent into every direction, the density of objects attenuating by the cube of the distance the debris traveled. It would be very unlikely for any debris to reach the Shuttle, ISS or Chinese space station, or even other satellites. The film shows huge numbers of pieces hitting all at once, despite the debris being the result of multiple collisions separated by time, distance and original orbital track. No matter what, the debris would be in a completely different orbit from the ISS, and would not return. See more »

Okay. Copy that, Explorer. Dr. Stone, Houston. Medical is concerned about your ECG readings.

Every human being should have the chance to watch it at the least once in his life
To all the people that valued this movie 1/10. I've never written a review but in this case, seeing that this movie received 1 over 10 I would like to share some thoughts. First of all I wonder how much you would evaluate a movie like "Sharknado" or "Fifty Shades of Grey". This movie deserve more than 1 because surely is not the worse movie you saw or you will see in your lifetime. Originality: please enunciate me a movie that is talking about destruction about chain-reaction caused by debris. Who is telling that "Apollo 13" was better remember that the story was not original: it happened in reality, it was already there and the director already knew what happened, not having to invent it. There is a difference between reproducing and originality. State of art visual special effects: maybe you watched your movie on a tablet or laptop but for the time this movie was produced no better technology for special effects has been used before. For example, I like Inception but there is a big difference between filming "no gravity" effects with a normal camera and doing it with a 3D IMAX camera and the Academy Award Oscar is the evidence. If you watched it in a 2D small screen then it's not director's fault. To conclude I do not believe the director had even the idea to reproduce the reality or teaching science but only to show how beautiful is the life in our home, Earth and how difficult is to survive outside of it.
