The fact that the cast and crew have all clearly brought their A game makes the abbreviated ambitions of the script all the more glaring and increasingly frustrating as Ryan prepares for a hail-mary attempt at returning home. Gravityultimately feels like a genre workout, one that convincingly sees the heroism and struggle of not letting go, but never transcends its basic (wo)man-versus-nature narrative.

Gravity, hailed by Scott Foundas, J. Hoberman, and Kristin Thompson as a rare and groundbreaking fusion of Hollywood and experimental filmmaking, and not merely an extremely well-tooled amusement-park ride, is now being touted as a natural descendent of both Michael Snow’s La région centrale as well as 2001: A Space Odyssey, as if its metaphysical and philosophical dimensions were somehow comparable.

Gravity should be hailed for its vividness and for the artful elasticity with which it manipulates our sense of orientation – our bodily experience of watching, of being quasi-literally ‘moved’ by 3D imagery. But Cuarón ultimately sacrifices the promised ineffability for the easy payoff of cliffhanger thrills.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film Gravity

    At first it is almost an abstract object and it is the best and most fascinating part of "Gravity" : colours, light (Lubezki), movement. As soon at it becomes storytelling and heavy symbolism, the magic is kind of lost. Still a special experience.

  • C҉ă҉t҉ă҉l҉i҉n҉'s rating of the film Gravity

    I just applied for a job at NASA as an astrophysicist and even though I don't have any college degrees, I listed under qualifications "Have watched Gravity" and not only they hired me instantly but also made me the chairman and CEO of NASA.

  • Kelvane's rating of the film Gravity

    I find it interesting how the dialogue stays light, even during the heavier dramatic scenes. And I liked the layers of camera angle closeness, and the corresponding diagetic sound when they're acting.

  • Dzimas's rating of the film Gravity

    Really one of the worst space movies I've ever seen. It might not have been so bad if it had been a comedy. I kind of liked the opening scene where Clooney tootles around in his jet back and later when he returns in Bullock's frenzied dream, but ultimately this was just a sub-standard action flick set in space with cheap 3-D effects.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Gravity

    Come on, this is such an overrated film! By no means does the argument measure up to the excellence of its visuals and technical execution. The attempt to give depth to the main character was lazy ("I had a daughter, she hit her head and died.") and some scenes were just bad: like using a fire extinguisher in space (?) or randomly pressing the buttons in chinese... With a better script it would have been perfect.

  • João Biscaia's rating of the film Gravity

    Technically, it's wonderful. Cuarón's filming never disappoints me, really. But I fail to see the point of the whole film. What is it about? It feels like an oportunity to use 3D technology, although the CGI is flawless and POV shots are a very nice touch. The "emotional" part is commonplaced and unoriginal. Alfonso, you're a grower, not a shower. This film that won't live long in the memory.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Gravity

    It should have been called Mission Improbable. Even though you might enjoy Bullock's brush with NUMEROUS disasters in space there is no denying that the sheer amount of tricky situations she faces strains the credibility of the wafer thin script. The acting is OK and while the director piles on clichés of human tragedy nothing really registers emotionally for me. As a technical exercise, this is excellent.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Gravity

    I feel that hiding during the production of Gravity there was a great film (perhaps even a masterpiece) exploiting more than just the film's extraordinary technical prowess. Instead, I find it gorgeous, but tiresome and repetitive. Cuaron has mentioned that he was far more nervous when screening the film to a group of astronauts and scientists than to critics and cinephiles, dear Alfonso, perhaps that was a mistake.
