    Gravity has exceptional visuals and cinematography, coupled with Sandra Bullock's great acting and George Clooney occasionally being funny. The show has it's strengths (Bullock and visuals), but it also fails on many regards.

    1) If you've seen the trailer, you feel like you've seen 70% of the movie.
    2) It's one problem after the next and it's highly predictable.

    Although the premise of the movie is quite real, the scenarios and scenes seem exaggerated and embellished. You'll know what I mean if you see it.

    There are two reasons to see this in the theater.
    1) Because you'll have an out of this world experience with the visuals of Earth.
    2) This movie was actually done right in 3D.

    Ultimately I give it a thumbs down because I didn't love the movie in it's entirety. The visuals make it worth seeing at least once. But I will admit, it's one of those movies for me that sits on the fence. You won't be disappointed you saw it, but at the same time, it's not one I'd highly recommend from a storyline standpoint.

    Parents should know there is one noticeable f-word and a myriad of other profanity. The context of the movie and intensity of many scenes could reasonably justify the profanity, nevertheless, it's something to be aware of.

    Some teenagers may be bored with it, but this is an epic film that can lead to some interesting conversations with your children about the importance of faith, sacrifice and never giving up. My favorite part of the film was the scene where Sandra Bullock's character, who is obviously one very smart scientist, is asking for prayers on her behalf. With tears, she then confesses that she'd say her own prayers but "no one taught her how." A powerful scene.

    Some of the most magnificent scenes and cinematography of earth and space I have ever seen. Beautiful to watch in 3D. At times I wondered if I was watching Planet Earth, but then came the 20,000 mph debris. From then on it was a female version of Die Hard in space with a seemingly impossible sequence of events (hey, it even blames the Russians for cause of the carnage!). Great acting, engaging to watch, clean bar one "F" word and one "scatological" term that I can recall.

    A great movie for date night.

    Ok, except for the obligatory PG-13 'f-bomb', this movie is all clear for teens. Clooney does a great job, but not a stretch for him to play a cocky but earnest shuttle commander. Sandra Bullock does a great job of being vulnerable, overwhelmed, and believable. The plot is great, though the action scenes are amazing, yet unplausible. A very entertaining flick, that was intense and kept me engaged. Good movie.

    In a Nutshell: Wow. How did they film that? Gorgeous. Simply stunning. A feast for the eyes.

    Things I liked: I loved it when Sandra Bullock (SPOILER ALERT) finally gets back into the capsule, strips off her astronaut gear and slowly sinks into the fetal position, floating and breathing like a baby in the womb. Very powerful. I also loved it when she (SPOILER ALERT) crawls out of the ocean like a primordial creature and collapses with the sand between her fingers. She staggers and has a joyful, celebratory moment of life on earth. The musical score was wonderful and the pictures of earth from space were breathtaking. Sandra Bullock is more bankable than ever.

    Things I didn’t like: There wasn’t much of a plot. It really was about the physical and emotional journey and the miracle of life. I get dizzy easily, so I specifically chose not to watch this film in IMAX 3D, but I imagine it’s amazing.

    Uplifting theme: Life is worth fighting for. While the universe is an incredible masterpiece, mankind is God’s greatest creation.

    Tips for parents: Two swear words.

    Grade: A-

    I saw this movie in IMAX 3D, and I am glad that I did! It was amazing, and the cinematography was spectacular! I've often wondered what it would be like to be in outer space, and this movie gave me a taste of it. I found myself even dodging space debris during the movie.

    Sandra Bullock gave an outstanding performance as a medical engineer. Who knows, it may even be Oscar worthy! When you first meet her, she is a non emotional, but brilliant scientist. As the movie progresses, you see emotion and spirituality come forth.

    Because of a space accident, and the resultant space debris, you see Sandra and George Clooney go from one unforgiveable incident to another. Just when you think that their situation can't get any worse, it does! I loved the movie! Be sure to see it in IMAX 3D! You will be glad that you did!

    “Gravity” is a very simple story, but it comes at you in layers. You can enjoy the basic intensity of this survival tale or you can go deeper and experience the reawakening of a person who believes she has no reason to go on.

    This movie was good not great. It was the space version of “Cast Away”, (without Wilson). I like Sandra Bullock as an actress. She does a great performance of portraying her character and handling her situation in space. There was one f word and 3 sh-words that I heard. The movie has suspense because it shows one problem after another for Ryan (Sandra Bullock). The movie made me grateful for living on the planet earth and having my feet on the soil! Overall the movie was good. For me it was a one-time see.

    I have just watched this in 3D and to be honest i was somewhat blown away. The film is visually stunning and the score deserves the Oscar win it walked away with. I am not going to launch into some film critic diatribe on the scientific plausibility of the whole film as IT IS NOT A DOCUMENTARY!!!! Its a film, a work of fiction to provide 90 minutes of pure entertainment. Suspend your disbelief and just go with it as for most of us its the closest to space we will ever get. When i see the reviews that lay into this i fear that we have lost the ability to just enjoy a film for what it is rather than expect some life changing, world peace bringing, disease curing on screen miracle.

    For overall entertainment value, this film lives up to the hype of it's Academy Awards and nominations. It's beautiful visually. It's story line portrays how small humans are in the cosmos, yet how significant we are to each other, and how strong we can be in the face of the "impossible". Being the family guy I am, a big drawback for me was a particular segment containing the strongest profanity I would imagine could be allowed with a PG-13 rating -- thus the high "OK for" age I rated it.

    People looking for complex storylines and intricate plots may be disappointed with Gravity; its linear narrative is somewhat one-dimensional. But Director Alfonso Cuaron has taken the harsh elements of space and combined them with fluid camera work to craft an elegiac journey that’s as balletic as 2001: A Space Odyssey. The technically brilliant Gravity is a tour-de-force ride and one of the best films of 2013... See Full Review

    The only real way to see this movie is in 3D. I for one usually hate 3D movies and do not feel they are worth the extra price of admission but this was the first one I have seen that was totally worth it. You actually feel like you are in space and witnessing what is happening. If you what till video or see it as 2D I think most people will still like the film but just marginally like it.

    The story is pretty straightforward and simplistic. The director Alfonso Cuaraan said he wanted the audience to be on the edge of their seats the whole time so as you can imagine the whole film is just one intense situation after another, which can get a bit tiring after a bit. Sandra Bullock does a pretty good job in this film but takes a backseat to the visual and cinematography part of the film which is the true star of the movie.

    Overall, this movie has set the standard for 3D in my opinion. They waited to make this film for the technology to catch up to what they envisioned. So with that said if you want to truly see this film in its true form you need to see it in 3D.

    Great special effects, superb acting by Sandra Bullock and a good story make for on of the more enjoyable films of the year. George Clooney provides some insight and humor, but the movie really belongs to Bullock. I riveted all the way through even though the plot had some stretches. It is just a fun, suspenseful, well-maed movie. Some may be offended at a bit of profanity, most of which I didn't hear because I was too involved in the plot. There were some brief, gruesome dead bodies, but most looked like poor wax figures. I think most would enjoy this film, even the older folks (like me).

    I like this movie. It kept me on edge and made me feel like I couldn't breathe. I felt like Sandra Bullocks character just couldn't catch a break. I though that some of the scenes were taken a bit far and far fetched but over all it was a good movie. I would recommend seeing it in theater on the big screen so that you can get the awesome images that they do show. I don't know if I will own this one, but it was good. There was some strong language so I would not take the kids.

    he ebb and flow of Gravity's story is deeply organic — it seems to be making itself up as it goes along, and that's how it hooks us. Yet what sustains our absorption is a rather tricky synthesis between our involvement in the characters' plight and our head-scratching wonder at the matter-of-fact way that the film brings the physical realities of space to life: the sheer cosmic terror of it, the images of satellites cluttered with drifting matter, from chess rooks to tears. The actors are phenomenal. Clooney shows a haunting chivalry beneath his bluster, and Bullock is as desperate and resourceful and anxious and brave as Sigourney Weaver in the last half of Alien...

    “Gravity” is one of the once-to-a-generation films that transform our sense of the immensity of space and the potential of film. Like “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Avatar,” it makes use of technology to create unprecedented visual splendor that recalibrates our notions — literal and metaphorical — of our place in the universe. I have two recommendations: see it on Imax 3D to get the full effect. And see it soon, before you are exposed to spoilers that give away too much of the story... See Full Review
