Starring: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney
Directed by: Alfonso Cuaron
Today, I finally saw the movie, “Gravity”… the outer space movie and here is my review:
Plot/synopsis: Two astronauts, Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) who is an expert medical engineer on her first space mission and Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) who is a veteran on the way to retirement was on a mission but their shuttle was destroyed leaving Stone and Kowalsky the only survivors. They try their best to survive and return home to Earth safely but of course things get a lot worse.
I understand that Sandra Bullock isn’t everyone’s favorite actress. I was never a fan of hers myself but after seeing this movie, I am now absolutely in love with Sandra! A lot of people want to judge her by her past work in Hollywood. There are people negatively criticizing Sandra saying stuff that they refuse to see this movie ’cause they think her acting is bad. I mean, come on? After finally seeing this movie… Sandra really showed her acting talent. She proved that she “CAN” act. Without a shadow of a doubt, I think she has an Oscar coming for this role whether you like it or not. Before negatively judging her, you should actually see this film. You’d be surprised of Sandra. I thought she did an amazing job. Plus, she was sexy as hell in the film too!
As for the film itself… I honestly thought it was the best film released in 2013. It’s a true science fiction movie at it’s best. It’s a pretty realistic story… something that can happen in real life. I’m sure NASA has already dealt with similar situations like this in real life. I’m sure NASA had plenty of accidents and plenty of astronauts were killed. Remember, the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster? If not, look it up. Everyone dreams of wondering what it’s like to be out in space but this film wants to give you a reality check that being out in space is not all that fun as you think. It wants to show you how dangerous space can be.
The film may have only two people throughout but the film was still amazing. The script was perfect. The visuals were phenomenal, and the score was excellent as well.
Clooney’s acting is great as always but Sandra steals the show here.
This was a beautiful movie and it blew me away. The film has a mix of emotions. It can be very scary and frightening at times — it can also get funny/comedic and very sad.
I would strongly suggest you check this movie out before it stops playing. See it in 3D. This is the best 3D movie, in my opinion.
Two thumbs up.
