Consensus: Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is an eerie, tense sci-fi thriller that's masterfully directed and visually stunning.

The hype for Cuarón's ambitious Gravity has been . . . well . . . out of this world. Critics have fallen over themselves praising the film and I went into the theater expecting very big things indeed. I hate to say this, but I didn't love it.

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.

Gravity should be getting award consideration in several categories. Its spectacular cinematography creates a powerful juxtaposition between the sublime beauty of the cosmos and its powerful isolation.

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.

Nerve-racking, sentimental and thrilling, Gravity honors terra firma even as it reaches for the stars with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

Cuaron keeps his film as realistic as it can get. No melodrama, no far-fetched stylised action scenes or convenient plot twists. The film stays unpredictable till the end.

Unfolding as a series of terrifying object lessons in Newtonian physics, the movie lends new meaning to the phrase "spatial geometry."

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.

An exhilarating theatre experience, but upon reflection, it feels like the phenomenal second half of a truly epic 150 minute sci-fi drama. In the end, it leaves… More

Cuarón does not seem to grasp the 3D technology that well nor is he always able to stick to the basic rules that he established for his own universe, but he… More
