I love "Gravity". It felt like five minutes long. I was begging for more. The editing and pacing is perfect -- to the point where you do not notice the hour and half gone by.
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney deliver Oscar-worthy performances. However, this film belongs to Bullock. Her emotions are powerful and tangible.
"Gravity" will give you connections that you never receive when watching films. I felt like I knew Dr. Ryan Stone and Matt Kowalski.
The script is weak and somewhat predictable, but the performances and visual effects made up for it. The synopsis can be summed up in one sentence: Dr. Ryan Stone is stranded in space.
The visual effects are realistic and stunning. It feels as if you are in space. The 3D enhances the story. You can almost feel and touch the space debris. Yes, I literally grabbed for the debris and tried to throw it out of my way. Or I was trying my hardest to get the debris out of Dr. Ryan Stone's way, so she could survive.
I have no idea how director Alfonso Cuaron made "Gravity". I was simply blown away on many levels. You definitely will, too. Do not make excuses to ignore "Gravity", because you will regret it in the long run.
"Gravity" must be seen in cinemas and in 3D. Do not wait to see this film on home video. If you do, it is your loss and my gain. A
I am considering my second viewing in cinemas -- already. It is that good.
