Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
Gravity is a visually stunning movie with great special effects. The movie very effectively used 3D and I’d definitely recommend to see it this way.
Anyone who has seen the trailer knows the basic plot: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are involved in an accident during a space walk and are struggling to survive. The director effectively switches the viewpoint of the action – sometimes being third person and sometimes being Clooney or Bullock including the view from inside their masks. Bullock has the bigger role and gives a very effective performance.
I won’t give away what happens. The plot isn’t as strong (or complicated) as the special effects but the tension is strong throughout and this is definitely worth seeing.
