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
In the opening scene, as Kowalski flies very close to the camera, astronauts holding a movie camera and boom mic appear to be reflected in his helmet visor. This is an in-joke by director Cuarón. The production crew's "reflections" were added with CGI to make it look like the scene was actually filmed in space, and that the post-production team failed to digitally paint-out those reflections.

When Kowalski asks Stone to let go of him because the rope will not them both, that could never happen because they are both in the same orbit around the earth. A short simple tug would have brought him back to her. See more »

I have just watched this in 3D and to be honest i was somewhat blown away. The film is visually stunning and the score deserves the Oscar win it walked away with. I am not going to launch into some film critic diatribe on the scientific plausibility of the whole film as IT IS NOT A DOCUMENTARY!!!! Its a film, a work of fiction to provide 90 minutes of pure entertainment. Suspend your disbelief and just go with it as for most of us its the closest to space we will ever get. When i see the reviews that lay into this i fear that we have lost the ability to just enjoy a film for what it is rather than expect some life changing, world peace bringing, disease curing on screen miracle.
