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
Since the Hubble Space Telescope operates at high earth orbit and was just within the space shuttle's range, and the International Space Station operates at low earth orbit, it was well beyond the reach of the film's survivors. In 2009, when the Hubble was last maintained, a 2nd shuttle had to be prepared, just in case a rescue was needed. In an emergency, there was no way the maintenance crew could intercept the ISS. As it was, the mission was a complete success and the crew returned safely home without incident. See more »

There's something amazing about Hollywood cinema. When you think they were done with pushing the boundaries of cheesiness and plot less explosions, somebody raises millions of dollars do to so. Except the 10 first minutes that eventually let some hope stay on the screen, and some nice 3D images, this movie has been a waste of time. It looks like a mix of well known a-thousand-time-heard chunks of fast- food plot. Really. A joke. Dramatic family pictures, dramatic love story, know-it-all veteran, the poor mother who realizes she love her daughter, hot actress in underwear, violin music every 5 minutes, "let me go - no, because you will die - but its OK - but no - but aahhh"... I don't think i can list all these jokes. Not worth it, Gravity is another million dollar bland soup.
