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 »
Early on in the movie, Clooney's character mispronounces his own name at least once. The first time he says it he pronounces it "ko-AL-skee". The next time he pronounces it "ko-AWL-skee". NASA on the ground consistently pronounces it the second way. He also mispronounces the well-known name "Soyuz" as mentioned elsewhere here. No English-speaking astronaut would ever do this.

As many other reviewers here, I have no clue as to which movie the "prof reviewers" have seen.
Apparently it's not the same movie that i saw.
What i saw, was stunning visuals, bad story telling, bad story writing, one dimensional characters, and a ton of supposed realism gone out the window.
I felt like the movie tried to sell me on something that could be real... and i found that it showed me a fairy tale without much realism.
The plot was so thin, and the realism of the movie so low, that i know for sure i will never watch this movie again. Because unlike a lot of other movies, it will never have anything new for me, or interesting. And when you have seen it once, you can sum it up again in 10 seconds or less.
Do me a favour, and never ever pay full price for this pos...
