Gravity


Item Details

Dr. Ryan Stone is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, the shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left, and the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

One of the worst most boring movies I've ever seen. Maybe my expectatations were too high. The ending is so predictable I found it nauseating. "Big" stars do not make a great movie. Not recommended.

I really don't get all the negative comments on this film listed here. Its almost like these people were bragging that they weren't paying attention. It ended up as a life or death situation in the vacuum of space and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I'd see it again.

Plotless, pointless, a bore.The plot was much too thin, the characters were not well developed or fleshed out, again, no plot and the ending could have been done better by a film student. Clooney with his wisecrack oneliner and bullock freaking out were not convincing as astronauts, worse acting ever. Visually stunning and a great score that is all. Why was this movie nominated and received most of the awards. It would have been a travesti if "12 Years a Slave" with such superb acting from an ensemble cast and great plot/script had not won best picture. A billion dollars worlwide and 70 Millions for bullock. It seem the box office success is directly proportionate with the populus IQ and taste.

I really didn't know whether she would survive or not. Stunning visuals. Yes, there really is no plot and yes, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are the only actress and actor...unless you count the people radioing them as actors.

Thrilling survival story of a Space Shuttle astronaut in mid-orbit over Earth, a one woman show by Bullock and the supporting stars were Clooney and special effects and cinematography of planet earth. (If you like Europa Report, this one is superior.)

It's okay. The film was short and moved quickly enough, but other reviewers are correct, it's a very simple plot and rather boring. I'd kind of compare it to Open Water.

Very disappointing. It is so boring and has a ridiculously simple plot. I don't understand how it was nominated for any awards.

At 600KM above planet Earth the temperature fluctuates between +258 and -148 degrees Fahrenheit. There is nothing to carry sound. No air pressure. No oxygen. Life in space is impossible.
