Gravity 3D (2013)        PG-13

Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney

Director: Alfonso Cuarón

Synopsis: Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Mission Director Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) are astronauts on the space shuttle Explorer that is on a mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. All of a sudden, a Russian satellite that exploded in a debris field is heading straight towards the Explorer. This incredible film follows the journey of Dr. Stone and Matt Kowalski in their attempt to find another way home as the damage to the shuttle Explorer was catastrophic.


This movie was truly a worst case scenario that made the audience fear for the astronauts just as if they were on a real life mission. Due to the debris field that destroyed the Explorer, along with the Hubble Telescope, the astronauts found themselves floating freely throughout space and Dr. Stone was running low on oxygen.

Kowalski, who was wearing a jetpack of sorts where he could direct where he wanted to go, came to Dr. Stone’s rescue and towed her along. They went back to their space shuttle to find themselves to be the sole survivors of the mission and without a way to get back down to Earth. Of course, it also doesn’t help that communication with NASA was cut off.

Gravity is truly a gripping movie that will make you laugh, cry, and at some points, smile. The storytelling ability of Director Alfonso Cuarón is phenomenal. Sandra Bullock’s serious and intense demeanor matched up perfectly with Clooney’s light and humorous personality. Plot twists throughout the movie keep you guessing as to what will happen next and lead you to believe they will never get home.

At 91 minutes long, this film is full of entertainment and does not once seem drawn out. You will be kept on the edge of your seat throughout this film. The timeline is not that hard to figure out, but it is a well told story that will leave you entertained as you walk out of the theater.

The 3D version didn’t really give too much more excitement than the 2D version probably would have. There were a few scenes that the 3D was the main emphasis, but in all honesty the opening previews probably had more 3D effects than the actual movie. I would recommend going to the see the 2D version; it would save you a couple of bucks.

Gravity is intense, exciting, and overall, amazing. I would definitely recommend seeing this movie sometime in the near future and trust me you will not be disappointed.
