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

Did You Know?


Shooting long scenes in a zero-g environment was a challenge. Eventually, the team decided to use computer-generated imagery for the spacewalk scenes and automotive robots to move Sandra Bullock for interior space station scenes. This meant that shots and blocking had to be planned well in advance for the robots to be programmed. See more »

Couldn't Suspend My Disbelief
5 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The visuals and sound were great, but that is not enough to make this overrated movie actually good. The plot was so incredibly convenient and unrealistic that it completely took me out of the movie, and the repetitive "action" scenes grow boring quickly. The acting is nothing special, and it certainly isn't helped by the dialogue. The characters are unbelievable, and anyone who passed middle school science can tell that some of the physics (mainly one of the most important scenes of the movie) make no sense. Overall, Gravity is fun to look at, but just isn't a good movie. The insane amount of hype for this movie made it all the more disappointing.
