I have never been a big fan of IMAX 3D. However, I can't imagine seeing this film in any other format. One of the best films I've ever seen.

Suspense isn't really the word to describe this movie. Maybe intense is a better fit. You will be captivated from the beginning, if not by George Clooney's character, then certainly by the visual effects. The action starts almost immediately so don't buy popcorn because you won't have time to eat it before you start clenching your teeth and clinging to the armrests. If you had any question about Sandra Bullock's acting ability, this will answer them for you. She is in virtually every scene. Hell, she IS virtually every scene.
I guess if you are a fan of 3D, it is well worth seeing this movie in 3D. There sure is plenty flying through space. But I think the special effects were spectacular enough to stand on their own. So, any way you see this movie, it's a good one.

Saw it in IMAX 3D the first night. I think everyone in the audience had seen the trailer where the shuttle is hit with debris and Sandra goes flying off into space, and everyone was probably thinking the same thing I thought: "Alright, how are you going to impress me now, movie?" My expectations were pretty much blown away. Best use of 3D I've ever seen (and I still think 3D is gimicky) and the thing that stuck with me the most afterward was the feeling of being in outer space. Loved it. Scenes bridged well from one interesting idea to another and at 90 minutes run time, I never felt bored - I wanted it to go on longer (and I had to pee real bad; went to Lucille's and had a couple beers prior). Aside from a few scenes where Sandra says something completely unnecessary (and totally, dumbed-down, movie-cliche dialogue-type stuff) I enjoyed myself the entire way through. The epic-ness of this movie totally redeems any negatives you might pick the movie apart for.

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.

If you have ever been to Disney and gone to one of those 3D movie rides, expect the same here only for 90 minutes long - when it ended I felt like I was getting off a ride
The objects flying in space sometimes appear to be coming close to your face
You absolutely feel like you are in space with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney
Basically it is a space survival movie and it kept me glued to the screen
I came out unsure if it was all I heard it was suppose to be but when I described it all to someone else today it did appear there was much more depth to the movie than I originally felt
I am glad to have seen it in IMAX 3D and recommend it to all who liked space tv shows and movies
