It's hard to pinpoint my exact opinion on this movie. The visual effects are phenomenal without a doubt, but the story, not there for me. You basically followed Ryan around space. It was not a bad movie, worth seeing, but I don't think the movie of the year.

Gravity is so richly visual to get the most out of what the director is giving you, do yourself a favor and go to an IMAX 3D theater and sit in the middle two or three rows from the screen. Eat all your popcorn during the trailers and once the movie starts, buckle up and prepare yourself for the most immersive 3D experience you will ever see. Gravity is INTENSIVELY AWESOME!

Wonderful special effects sequences make this an exciting visual experience, somewhat reminiscent of a Stanley Kubrick film. Preposterous story of survival, however, is more like Marvel Comics fiction than science fiction.

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.
