Gravity stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Believe the hype: Gravity is as jaw-droppingly spectacular as you've heard - magnificent from a technical perspective but also a marvel of controlled acting and precise tone."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Nerve-racking, sentimental and thrilling, Gravity honors terra firma even as it reaches for the stars with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"You don't have to love sci-fi to love Gravity, you just have to love the power of cinema to provide a transcendent experience."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"The fact that the film touches on spiritual themes at all is worth noting, and makes this film just a little bit more than the thrill ride that all the ads have promised."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Patheos
"This is a story about people floating through space, and Alfonso Cuarón's feature brilliantly contrives to make the viewer feel similarly untethered, to often thrilling effect. This is surely the closest cinema comes to three-dimensional virtual abseiling."
‑ Jonathan Romney, Sight and Sound
"Unfolding as a series of terrifying object lessons in Newtonian physics, the movie lends new meaning to the phrase "spatial geometry.""
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Cuarón and his cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki, keep the audience in weightless suspension right along with the astronauts. For most of us, Gravity is the closest we will ever get to the real deal."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"One of the greatest man-versus-nature movies in cinematic history."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"An escape from the past that is simultaneously a flight to no future."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"The single most stressful two hours you can have in a movie theatre - in the best possible way."
‑ Rima Sabina Aouf, Concrete Playground
"Gravity is not a film of ideas, like Kubrick's techno-mystical 2001, but it's an overwhelming physical experience -- a challenge to the senses that engages every kind of dread."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Gravity, a weightless ballet and a cold-sweat nightmare, intimates mystery and profundity, with that mixture of beauty and terror that the Romantics called the sublime."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"$90,000,000, a hundred, whatever they spent: this is a taut thriller built for audiences but also one of the most expensive experimental movies ever made. It's a thrill ride, but a work by a visual artist at the extremes of his acuity."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"One of the best science fiction movies in years."
‑ Sherilyn Connelly, SF Weekly
"Surely there are Oscar nominations for all involved, and Gravity is set to be a classic."
‑ Mike Barnard, Future Movies UK
