Gravity can’t be compared to any other movie because it is truly original.  If there’s one word to describe it, it would be “intense.”  The movie is just one hour 40 minutes, but you walk out feeling like you’ve had a work-out.

And if I got that worn out just sitting through the movie, I can’t even imagine how worn out Sandra Bullock was after shooting all of these physically demanding scenes!

In Gravity, Sandra Bullock plays a rookie astronaut/scientist on her first flight, with veteran astronaut George Clooney. When trouble hits, the two of them must figure out how to save themselves and get back home.

It’s fascinating that there is so much story here, yet so little dialogue.

Visual effects are remarkable.  I’m sure there will be lots of nominations for this one, Best Actress, Best Director, Visual Effects and more.

This is one of those movies that is better seen on the big screen.  And see it in 3D if you can – really worth it!
