Maybe I'm too demanding. There are so much special effects, surely an actual script wasn't necessary, right?
Maybe I was just bored because I played many video games that felt similar, only I was Sandra Bullock.
Maybe the theatre I went to was just out of the koolaid, I don't know.

I would like someone to show me the page in the official rule book of movies that says a good film must be plot-centric. It's close-minded to hold the story, or lack thereof, against a movie like Gravity seeing as how its aim was to be more of a sensory experience. And as far as fulfilling that aim went, I have to give generous praise to Alfonso Cuaron, Emmanuel Lubezki, and Tim Webber for creating one of the most beautiful cinematic journeys I've experienced in recent years.

I'm not certain, but I have a strong suspicion that Gravity's look and feel was inspired in part by the movie Enter the Void. It's a very similar trip in terms of sensory stimulation (not to mention depravation), POV, and spiritual themes of death. The only thing that holds me back from placing Gravity on the same high pedestal as Enter the Void is unfortunately -- as other commenters have lamented -- the terrible dialogue.

This movie is great, visually is incredible, the sound is simple awesome, Sandra Bullock performance is fantastic.
It's a shame that I didn´t see this movie on the theather.
Alfonson Cuaron was great he deserves great recognition for this movie.

The visuals and the sound work was absolutely amazing! But everything else had me going "Yeah. And?" It was worth watching it for the creative camera work, the stunning effects and the capturing sound, but that's it. I recommend going to a theathre if I you don't I fear you'd get bored of the constant, too obvious "suspense".

Wrote Calliope_Clamors:
"Do yourself a favor and see it on the biggest screen you can, preferably IMAX 3D. The immersion is breathtaking. (Literally, you will forget to breathe.)

"If any of this sounds like hyperbole, please tell me where I exaggerated."

Um, OK...the part about literally forgetting to breathe.

Stunning visuals, but I'm not a big fan of the cast. Dialogue wasn't stellar either, luckily there wasn't too much of it.

One thing though: This was the first time ever when I actually enjoyed the 3D experience and felt that this was exactly the way this film was supposed to be viewed.

The real highlight of the film: Sandra Bullock's perfect ass.

Visually, the film was fantastic, but a few plot holes niggled me the wrong way. Please note these are definatly nitpicky observations, but there were enough there, that I feel could of been avoided and made the story run smoother.


Overall, I did enjoy the movie, the eye candy was amazing and the visuals were technically perfect. The vibe and feeling of the film was amazing too, but considering the subject matter, I expected it to not have as many plotholes and flaws in it. Definatly a film to watch at the cinema though!

There's a reason everyone is talking about the visuals because the rest is cheap laughs and cheap emotional bullshit. Sorry Sandra, you ain't makin me feel shit.

But yes the visuals are impressive and makes it barely worth watching.

Devastatingly beautiful. I'm claustrophobic and empathetic so to me this was extremely emotional and almost physically exhausting. Space, accompanied only by deep waters, is the thing that I am both most afraid of and most fascinated by. I really enjoy films that make me anxious this way. I like to be reminded how insignificant I am on an universal scale, rather than just on a planetary one. As a person I'd like to have a purpose, but I really don't and so it's comforting to remember none of you guys matter either.

Gorgeous to look at with a fantastic opening but the rest? I don't know exactly what i expected going in, i had only seen the trailer and plotwise i had read nothing so i think i'm partly to blame for my dissapointment but nethertheless, i really don't see the praise for this film. Cuarón does a great job at placing the viewer in the claustrophobic situation of the astronauts but soon after the terrifying initial sequence the film seems to veer off into superhuman-action film territory, with Sandra Bullock's character spoiler, only for another inconvenient disaster to turn up soon after ready for the CGI-danger fest to start all over again. We spend very little time with the characters before the danger begins, so subsequently George Clooney is reduced to a wisecracking 'hero' for the entirety of his screen time while Sandra Bullock's emotional core seems to revolve around spoiler, explained in a couple of minutes toward the beginning complete with tear jerking strings and standard Sad Hollywood Backstory dialogue. I'm all for 'experiencing' films and i understand that the focus of Gravity is on that very experience but for me it was like having the wires and pulleys showing behind the stage, once the structure was exposed i could only sit and wait for the next inevitable Epic Soundtrack backed certain-death situation to appear for Bullock to miraculously escape (and of course she will) and that really stopped me from enjoying the 'ride'.

The visuals really are stunning though and full props to Cuarón for trying something genuinely new with the power of CGI and 3D (which for the first time i felt was really used well), it will be interesting to see what filmmakers do with Gravity's ideas in the future. For me though this was a familiarly hollow experience.

It seems people don't understand what plot means any more.

Saw it in 3D IMAX, biggest screen in the country. Technically mindblowing fusion of cinematography, 3D and VFX, all other films this year should just step aside. Plot and dialogue are minimal but the spectacle and detail is extraordinary. 7.5/10
