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

Actor Phaldut Sharma, who voiced as a goofy Indian astronaut, 'Shariff', chose the song "Mera Joota Hai Japani" for humming himself when the director asked him to play something light. The director thought the character would put the audience at ease and get a few laughs before the actual story kicked off. The lyrics of the song literally mean, "My shoes are Japanese, my pants are English, the red hat on my head is Russian, and yet my heart is Indian" - figuratively saying that an Indian, wherever he goes, whatever he eats or wears, at the very heart he'll always be an Indian. It is a classic Hindi song from Shree 420 (1955). See more »

It is hard for most people to understand the difficulty in being in orbit trying to reach another object in orbit. Accelerating an object in the direction of travel will actually not move you forward. Instead the energy is used up raising the object's altitude, where it will have a slower orbital speed and therefore actually move "backwards" in orbit. Accelerating "up," "down" or "backward" would have other results that most people wouldn't expect. For Stone to directly aim at the Chinese space station in its own independent orbit and accelerate in that direction would give results that are unpredictable given our lack of knowledge of both orbits, but most definitely would not result in her getting to where she wants to go.

Good, but let's not say it's completely realistic...
4 October 2013 | by (Mesilla, NM) – See all my reviews

The visuals for this movie are impressive. The story line is enjoyable, and it leaves you appreciating your place on Earth. The characters also provide some good laughs.

It was one of the better 'space' movies. However, as a geek (I know, I know it's a movie) the orbits are all wrong for some of the events to even remotely take place. So if you know anything about space travel, as usual suspend disbelief for the moment. It at least stayed largely true to the no sounds in space thing, and provides some good lessons about linear and angular momentum. The fact I even get to bring this up, means I give the film makers some serious props... I wouldn't go so far as some of the reviews where they says the movie is creating a whole "new genre". The reviewers and movie makers just never realized, until now, what us geeks knew all along... space is much more awesome and frightening if you portray it more realistically.

Hopefully the movie also provides a good reminder about how special this little rock is, and how unforgivable the rest of the universe is. Let's try and keep our planet that way! At least I was reminded of this when I left the theater.
