Even the most fabulous special effects overflowing in this movie could not dim the light of Sandra Bullock's acting ability. Unlike James Cameron's blue people with tails which lacked a storyline and script, Gravity was the complete package. Our party agreed we felt as if we were in space. Phenomenal special effects - there was no sense of being casual bystanders. Clooney provided the light hearted, but deadly in earnest character he can do so well, offsetting Sandra's character's grim outlook.

I enjoyed the movie. It was one that I was at the edge of my seat most of the time. With the 3D IMAX I felt like I was right there tumvbling thru space with them.

Stunning 3-D visuals, but funky physics.
Using a fire extinguisher to stop tumbling was far fetched.
Fib 2 was that a highly accelerated debris field would remain in the same orbit, in the same place, in precisely the 90 minutes that it took them to make their way the second time around the earth. Such a debris field, with that momentum, could cross their path once on its way to a higher and different orbit.
Fib 3: Clooney's character disconnecting himself from Bullock to drift away... implying that his momentum would prevent her from getting back to an airlock to the station At that point, both his and her momentum relative to the station had already decelerated to zero. They both together and equally could have pulled selves back to the airlock. He was in a better physical condition, with more available oxygen. That he disconnected in a gesture of space age chivalry was ridiculous and endangered her further... by orders of magnitude.

The plot was nothing ground breaking or deep, but seeing this type of action/suspense movie in IMAX 3D was insane!!! It was totally worth the 3 hour drive for the experience!

Visually beautiful! Saw it in 3D at an IMAX theater-felt like I was right there! Sandra Bullock should at least get nominated for best actress! Special effects stunning! Just loved it! Would go see it again in a heart beat!!
