Quick Review

Gravity follows two astronauts as their satelite repair job goes horribly wrong. The movie takes this premise and makes it personal. That is the main triumph of the movie, that it takes the vastness of space and makes it personal.

On a technical level, the movie is incredibly convincingly filmed. On an emotional level Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play it just right. Clooney delivers a great performance, as always, but Sandra Bullock is in another stratosphere and delivers an Oscar worthy performance. She is the heart of the movie and gives it just that.

I often found myself on the edge of my seat, hoping that against all odds, somehow this would end well. By the end, I was an emotional wreck but uplifted in a way seldom done by a movie. Highly recommended.
