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

Goofs

Kowalski is shown joyriding around the Space Shuttle while repairs on the Hubble Space Telescope are taking place. Three reasons why this would never happen: it's unnecessary (meaning it would never be planned, meaning it would never happen); it's unsafe, risking collisions with the HST and/or Space Shuttle; the exhaust from the propulsion pack would risk fouling the optics and instruments of the HST.

Watch the trailer, there.. you've seen it
12 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seriously... my 4 stars are 2 for acting, 2 for special effects.

Dialog get's more or less 0, because it sounds like it was hashed out in about 10 minutes.

I'd normally save the rest for plot, but there was none... If you watch the trailer, and I tell you that she survives.. you would then be able to convince anybody else who's seen it that you'd seen it too.. I'm sure plenty of people will say that's an exaggeration but I promise it's not..

If you meet anybody who says it's good, try this out for yourself and see if it works!

The special effects are amazing, but it's like the icing on a missing cake - you have to have substance first. Bear in mind I'm a huge fan of movies like inception and the matrix, movies which some would accuse of being more special effects than plot - but this takes the biscuit.

I'll say no more, because the trailer plus the inevitable ending speaks for itself.
