Gravity was very hyped and while the visual effects were awesome, they made my friend motion sick. There was too much spinning trying to enforce that you were in fact in space. There should have been a warning posted somewhere for people with motion sickness.

The science in this film is the real deal. The special effects, astonishing. Must see in 3D. Get a real sense of outer space. Bullock is riveting.

Cinematography and special effects are incredible and are worth seeing. The movie plot, while intriguing, has the fantastic un-believability of "The Adventures of Baron von Munchausen" (which was delightful because it was so unbelievable it was written to be comedic). The idea of a MD (i) inexperienced in space, (ii) reading and comprehending instruction manuals in a matter of seconds, and (iii) who twice crashed simulated training landings randomly, but in real world extremis successfully punching buttons in first a Russian, then a Chinese space station, is a little much. I get the message--don't give up, but the message in the good Baron's comedy was the same. Bullock was good. Her best moment, in my view, was the scene when is first separated from the space station. She did a terrific job of capturing the fear and anxiety of such an experience. Clooney's head did a nice job, as well. I would not see this movie again.

I agree there was little character development. should have shown some interaction inside the capsule - that would have been interesting.
just never cared that much about her. Felt our emotions were being manipulated, and not expertly. Of course, the special effects were great.
