My husband & I went to see this at the IMAX, while this was only the 2nd time that we saw a movie at the IMAX, we were not dissappointed. Every aspect of this movie was amazing, from the acting, to the directing & the cinematography (we actually were ducking & dodging as if the space debris was going to hit us). Fun night out & worth the money for the ticket.

I rarely call a movie awesome and this one definitely merits it IMHO. Decent storyline and the acting was spot on. What elevated this to Awesome status was the 3D! I saw it on an IMAX 3D screen (expensive as hell!) and was blown away. The 3D wasn't there as just a gimmick. The director knew precisely how it should be used. For me, I wasn't just watching a movie on a large screen, but I was truly immersed. My wife & I caught ourselves on more than one occasion legitimately trying to dodge flying debris. Adults and older children (10+) will really enjoy it. Smaller children might get a little freaked out due to the immersive quality of the movie. The movie may feel too real for them. Heck, it felt too real to me and I'm 51! I decided to take a chance to spend almost $20 per person on the IMAX 3D experience. I can't imagine the movie still having the same impact on a non-3D screen. For me the 3D was its own character behind that of Bullock and Clooney.

I saw Gravity in 2D, then at the IMAX in 3-D. VERY disappointed with the 3-D version: 1) The projection only filled about 80% of the IMAX screen. But, most important, the polarized 3-D glasses and their notorious tinting reduced the overall experience dramatically! It's one thing if a bright outdoor scene is tinted slightly by the 3-D "shades" you're wearing, but they're just awful for deep space settings. I missed seeing the vibrant and emotional colors I saw in the 2D version. My suggestion: Skip the 3-D (and the IMAX) and see Gravity on the largest 2D screen you can find!

Wow!!! Rave reviews created high Expectations. Initial visuals(cinematography) was impressive but did not meet mission expectations. Acting and directing achieved lift off but failed to achieve orbital velocity and left the audience wondering why orbital debris failed to destroy this mission. Thankfully, the mission was short, significantly shorter than other missions, so the audience has increased probability of enduring the mission. Unfortunately, the failure to achieve mission objectives does not justify the cost. In summary, strongly recommend serious consideration for not supporting this effort.

Great film. Sandra Bullock really made me feel like she was lost in space alone. Might be a little tough young kids but everyone else will probably enjoy the suspense.
