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
Though the film itself depicts space as a silent void, sound effects were added to the trailers. See more »
When Sandra is attempting to remove parachute from escape pod she turns wrench wrong direction, in real life she would have tightened the bolts not loosened. There are 2 explanations for this. 1. The wrench is motorized and the head of the wrench is spinning in a counter-clockwise rotation. The resistance caused by the removal of the bolt will cause the handle to rotate clockwise. When the handle had moved enough to cause her discomfort, she repositioned the wrench. 2. There are bolts that have left-hand threads. See more »
This movie is absolutely stunning from the get go. I can't remember ever being pulled into a film so completely and thoroughly, and I don't think I've seen a more beautiful film. Its a pretty intense ninety minutes, with Bullock's character constantly battling one catastrophe after another, and all of it is amazing to see. The plot is pretty straight forward (see it, I won't talk about that), but its the way they pull it off that makes it absolutely worth seeing. Thanks to some incredible CGI, great direction, and solid acting, the movie is an absolute must see. I'm normally not a fan of 3D movies (I hate wearing the stupid glasses), but this movie uses it wonderfully and to great effect. I would strongly recommend seeing it in an IMAX theatre if you get the chance - if there was ever a movie made for 3d IMAX, this is it.
