Storyline

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 MuTaTeD

Trivia

Before filming began, the entire film was made and rendered, frame-by-frame, without lighting using basic digital models; when Alfonso Cuarón approached the producers and they suggested changes, Cuarón told them "no; this is exactly what the film will look like." See more »

Goofs

When Kowalski asks Stone to let go of him because the rope will not hold them both, that could never happen because they are both in the same orbit around the earth. A short simple tug would have brought him back to her. Additionally, once they are drifting away from the ISS, disconnecting from Kowalski would not cause her to rebound back toward the ISS unless another force pulled her back in its direction. At most she would stop when the ropes reach the end of their slack, in which case Kowalsky would also have stopped. See more »

Not flawless but stunning!
11 June 2016 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"You have to see this movie on the big screen otherwise it's boring and non-satisfying!" In my opinion that's just nonsense. Of course the experience is better but even though I didn't get the chance to see it in theater I was still stunned when I saw it at home for the first time. First of all let's get to the overall plot: A team of astronauts are out in space to repair the Hubble telescope when a Russian satellite is getting hit by a rocket and now wreckage of this satellite is about to collide with them. After that the only goal of everyone who survived this accident is to get back to earth alive. Gravity isn't a Science Fiction movie, it's more of a nerve-racking thriller. The main characters are played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney who both do an excellent job but this flick isn't outstanding because of the great acting or the story, it's the superior technical level this movie is on. Whether you talk about sound, which of course isn't always around as you are in space, so the most of the time you just listen to the powerful soundtrack, the impressive visuals when thousands of pieces of metal fly by you, or just the camera movement by Emmanuel Lubezki who won several Oscars for a good reason. In the first few minutes you get to see a very long shot which really involves you into the catastrophic events. Even when you are just at home lying on your couch you feel sick in the stomach when crew-members are tumbling around. It's really rare that I can feel for the characters that much as in Gravity, which gets supported by POV (point of view) shots here and there. That's why I don't get why a lot of people are complaining about this movie being boring, as he doesn't let you breathe a lot during the short run-time of 91 minutes. The only concern I got with the film is a very cliché turning point within the movie, but I don't want to spoil things here so I'll just leave you with that. This aspect gets easily dubbed by all the other great things I mentioned. In the end Gravity isn't just a movie, it's more of an experience you should witness. Don't get turned off by people complaining about watching the movie at home although a big TV and some good headphones or a surround system are recommendable. Overall it's not perfect but definitely worth a watch!
