This film is visually stunning and the acting is great. The story is straight forward and slow moving but suspenseful. Worth a watch!

For me, a rare big-screen experience--actually paid to see this in a movie theatre.
My mistake. Ho-hum. Subtitle: MOVIE STARS...IN...SPACE!!

Really, folks: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock? C'mon. Know what "suspension of disbelief" means? You're gonna need plenty with this one...suspended waaayyy up in space. Not too far, at that: just to the orbiting space station (see what I mean about ho-hum?)

Wanna see the real deal? Borrow a sci fi movie "Sunshine" from the screenwriter who later directed Ex Machine (one of the best sci-fi flicks of the decade) and the director who gave us 28 Days Later and Slumdog Millionaire.

Sunshine: Better story. More suspense. Effects at least as good--likely better--than Gravity's.

Sandra Bullock is fantastic, George Clooney is about as good as he usually is. The plot is okay, and the effects are fantastic.

The story was enjoyable and took unexpected turns . The views were pretty spectacular. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney did a good job as astronomers. Does contain both profanity and language. Not highly recommended.

Gravity was an okay movie, with a sound storyline and good actors. However, I felt like the storyline was a little bit dull, with not many effects or heart stopping moments, but it was still good and I feel like this would have been an amazing movie to watch in the cinemas because of its scenery.

This movie didn't hold my attention for long. It was one catastrophe after another, which gets boring. I am a huge fan of Sandra Bullock, which is why I rented it.

I love Sandra B. but I was disappointed in this movie. I found myself getting bored with it not even half way through.

Fair warning, I sobbed throughout the movie. It's a wonderful addition to the space adventure movie genre. I'd recommend it to people who like psychological thrillers because a lot of the movie's power is in the ability of the viewer to identify with or imagine what it is like to be Dr. Ryan Stone. It might be cool to have a double feature night of this movie and Space Cowboys or The Martian.

I thought this was horrible in the movie theater, even more so on my TV. The only think worse than the storyline was the physics and actual science involved n this catastrophe of a film.

A medical doctor working on the Hubble Telescope? I don't think so. Astronauts basically goofing off and acting like drunk college kids in space? I don't think so. Wait until they get to space before they even have a simple conversation abut backgrounds? I don't think so. The plot and the various special effects were far beyond was could even be realistic that it took away from the film.

One the other hand, Sandra Bullock in booty shorts.

At 600KM above planet Earth the temperature fluctuates between +258 and -148 degrees Fahrenheit. There is nothing to carry sound. No air pressure. No oxygen. Life in space is impossible.
