A must see in 3D and if you can IMAX is best. It's like being in space. The acting is excellent. The cinematography is mesmerizing, visually incredible and the closest to outer space most of us will ever get. I couldn't keep my eyes off the screen for 90 minutes. You could hear a pin drop in the theater. I recommend this film to everyone except maybe very young children. Run.

Saw this in IMAX 3D. BOOM! You really feel like you are in space. There were times I actually felt dizzy and nauseous from "spinning" like Bullock and Clooney were. Great use of 3D, for sure. After seeing this, you couldn't pay me enough to go into space now - HA! I am not an expert in this field so I can't comment on scientific accuracy, but this movie made outer space feel so up close and personal. Sandra Bullock, while not always my fave, was excellent. Highly recommend.

This movie celebrates life on so many levels. It was like being on a rollercoaster ride of life affirmation. I felt so blessed to live on this planet.

Definitely go see it in IMAX 3D if you can. While I admit that the story is compelling while you're sitting in the theater, if you read that script without all of those beautiful effects, it would have been just okay. The effects definitely carry this movie. That being said, they are spectacular enough to plunk down $20 for an IMAX ticket rather than waiting for the DVD.

This is a very well done compelling movie....until the ending. The views of earth and space from space are awesome! Sandra Bullock delivers a solid believable performance, and George Clooney turns in a predictably competent and charming performance. However the movie went a bit too far at the end by adding the water escape which made it come off as a bit cheesy. While I appreciate the parallels between space and water, the "one more challenge" at the end stretches our ability to accept the realistic challenges of any one story, one person or one film.
