From start to finish it had your attention. I am glad that it was only 90 minutes. I would rather a movie that leaves me wanting more rather than one than wanes and I am wondering when it will end.
Gravity doesn't let down for one minute and you don't dare let your eyes leave the screen just in case ...

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.

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

If at all possible, see this movie NOW in IMAX 3D. It was stunning visually and a terrific, moving story. I don't much care about 3D, but this movie uses it to tremendous effect.

If you like staring at a 50 foot Sandra Bullocks face close up for a long period of time while she whines and takes deep breaths, this movie will be 5 stars. Waste of a great idea and stunning effects.
