When Stone removes her spacesuit it is missing two parts, one of them being the Liquid Cooling & Ventilation Garment. The LCVG is what keeps astronauts from overheating and cannot be left out. It also deals with sweat. Without it Stone would risk a heat stroke. She'd also be soaking wet considering her extreme exertion earlier in the movie. We see none of that. See more »

Okay. Copy that, Explorer. Dr. Stone, Houston. Medical is concerned about your ECG readings.

I don't understand why the ratings have been so high for this movie. It's just okay. The visuals are great, but the rest is mediocre.
Sandra Bullock's character is very annoying and incompetent for most of the film. Like a woman that trips and falls when being chased, it's just an excuse to ratchet up the tension with a weak character instead of a tough situation.
The character's back-story seems contrived, just to introduce some character arc.
It's shows satellites and space stations within site of each other. Completely unrealistic.
This movie completely lost me when it had a Vertical Limit "any good climber would cut the rope" type scene. A completely contrived situation that defies the physics of space just to try to be dramatic. All it did was completely destroy any suspension of disbelief I was trying to maintain.
I WILL NEVER EVER TRUST IMDb grades anymore. This is just 21.century madness marketing....
