Gravity directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron, stars Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone.
-------------------------- Pour sa première expédition à bord d'une navette spatiale, le docteur Ryan Stone, brillante experte en ingénierie médicale, accompagne l'astronaute chevronné Matt Kowalsky. Mais alors qu'il s'agit apparemment d'une banale sortie dans l'espace, une catastrophe se produit. Lorsque la navette est pulvérisée, Stone et Kowalsky se retrouvent totalement seuls, livrés à eux-mêmes dans l'univers. Le silence assourdissant autour d'eux leur indique qu'ils ont perdu tout contact avec la Terre - et la moindre chance d'être sauvés. Peu à peu, ils cèdent à la panique, d'autant plus qu'à chaque respiration, ils consomment un peu plus les quelques réserves d'oxygène qu'il leur reste. Mais c'est peut-être en s'enfonçant plus loin encore dans l'immensité terrifiante de l'espace qu'ils trouveront le moyen de rentrer sur Terre...

The story opens with a George Clooney voice-over. We meet astronauts working to repair a satellite. This shows how calm such a silent world can be. I reluctantly saw the movie in 3D, but this was one occasion that I came away feeling that it added to the experience. It almost made me dizzy seeing Ryan Stone (Bullock) and Matt Kowalski (Clooney) go about their routine business with Earth looming large in the background. Indeed, the cinematography was breathtaking throughout the 90 minutes.
I don't want to give away too many details, but if you have seen the trailer or even looked at the poster, you'll know that this movie is far from being a calm ride. An accident sends debris racing toward the astronauts like some kind of deadly shrapnel. What follows is a story about the strength of the human spirit, and the will to survive against all odds. Remember that the word gravity has more than one meaning.
While I enjoyed Sandra Bullock's performances in The Blind Side and Speed, I would hardly describe myself as a fan. However, I left the theater thinking that she carried the whole movie, and it's easily the most accomplished performance of her career.
Alfonso Cuarón directed Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men, and the best Harry Potter movie (Azkaban), but this is comfortably my favorite from his impressive portfolio. The story is lean, gripping, thoughtful, thrilling, scary, breathtaking, beautiful, and emotional, and feels perfectly paced at every point.Read more ›
Gravity blasts onto blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. The transfer is pristine and eye-popping. Colour and contrast are flawless, with excellent saturation, lifelike skin tones, deep black levels and terrific shadow delineation. Detail is remarkably well-resolved too, with crisp, clean edge definition, wonderfully revealing fine textures and stunning close-ups, like the pinpoint stars, the hairs on Bullock's neck or the rough stubble on Clooney's chin, the fingerprints, smudges, dust and scratches on the space suit visors, the age and weathering on the metal tools and tethers Stone and Kowalski have to work with, plus the thousands and thousands of pieces of debris hurtling around the Earth. This is a first-class transfer. (5/5)
The 1080p MVC 3D picture was overseen by Richard Baker of Prime Focus Film and scanned by 4DMAX, Lightstage LLC, and XYZ RGB. Gravity was theatrically shown in D-Cinema 3D and in 70-mm blow up (dual-strip 3D) in IMAX Theatres. While the 3D IMAX experience was breathtaking, this 3D blu-ray experience in the home captures the full visual scope and scale of space/earth with the exceptional depth perspective presented by the native 3D photography. The added dimension of depth and volume dramatically enhances the realism. The floating perspective relative to Earth is spectacular, and when the destroyed satellite debris field hammers the space shuttle and escape pod sequences, both the negative parallax depth and positive parallax out-of-screen effect is adrenaline-inducing. Resolution is exceptional, with fine detail exhibited throughout. The colour palette is perfectly natural and well balanced with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation.

Sandra Bullock stars as Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). During a routine space walk, disaster strikes and their shuttle is destroyed. Their left completely alone drifting into blackness, as their oxygen levels decrease rapidly. Fighting to survive, their story will leave you on the edge of your seat.
You've never seen space as vivid and beautiful, with stunning visual effects that will blow you away. Sandra Bullock delivers a stellar performance and deserves a best actress nod. George Clooney is able to bring new life into his acting, and immerses himself into the role. With Oscarseason just around the corner, this is a must-see for all ages. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences and language, "Gravity" was a visual feast that I couldn't get enough of.
The visual effects are great on the big screen. I will be honest. I despise films which consist of one person being trapped and having to survive the whole film, because I know one of two things are going to happen...
What the film really needed was a big rubber headed alien to save them and probe their privates.Sure, I would have complained about that too, but at least I would have stayed awake.
BTW I loved 2001 because it mentally engaged me. This one did not because I knew one of two things were going to happen...
Parental Guide: Bullock lets loose one early F-bomb after a few S***s didn't suffice. 3 1/2 stars for Bullock in shorts. What did I do with my copy of "Fire on the Amazon?"
