A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
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
When Matt and Ryan are making their way to the International Space Station, he finds out Ryan is from Lake Zurich, Illinois, and states that it's 8:00 P.M. there. They are floating over Egypt where it is 3:00 A.M. locally. See more »
In reality all the space stations are at different altitudes; but the film depicts them being at the same altitude. See more »

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

That's what I call Entertainment! Yes, with a big E.
What will never cease to amaze me is the amount of people that have no sense for quality. How on earth can you score this movie with the lowest rating possible? That's just being unfair. The lowest rating possible means this is one of the worst movies you ever saw in your miserable life. Really? You never saw worse than Gravity? I thought Alfonso Cuarón did an amazing job and that for a story with basically only two actors and for the most part just one. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney made me sit on the edge of my seat more than once in this movie. I honestly don't care if it is realistic or not, it's most probably not, I just wanted to be entertained and that's exactly what I got, entertainment. Visually it's just perfect, as the CGI's make you feel like you're in space yourself. The soundtrack brings a special atmosphere to the movie so that was also good. Am I surprised Gravity won seven Oscars? Absolutely not! Gravity deserves all their Oscars as this movie is one of the best of 2013. I wished I watched in the theater though, that must have been impressive. It was already stunning on my big screen television so I can only imagine the sensation watching it in a theater.
