I’m spinning around, move out of my way...

Hollywood is currently serving up a slew of survival stories – though arguably none are more awe-inducing, eye-saucering or nerve-jangling than Alfonso Cuarón’s dizzying space spectacle Gravity. Like the title suggests, this is an astronaut adventure whose pull is hard to resist. By the time 90 stomach-shrinking minutes have elapsed, you’ll feel like you’ve been bumped around the heavens.

Over-hyped.

Gravity is technically amazing. The visuals and sound are stunning, however the film suffers due to a weak plot and lacklustre acting. See it but don't rush out to do so.

MUCH 3D, SUCH FILM, VERY SEXY. WOW.

Outstanding!

Reviewer: CeejayNightwingDate: 2014-03-12

This is a cinematic experience beyond anything I've ever seen. Rich with visual metaphors and narrative focused imagery. A rediscovery for a reason to live found during a fight to survive by learning to "let go". Worth every penny!

Falls Flat

1. This is NOT Sci-Fi. It has no science fiction in it what so ever. It IS a modern day rescue drama set in the earth's orbit. 2. The special effects are wonderful and deserve every Oscar going. The script, acting and audience engagement are dire.
