This movie was awesome! Everything about it was visually stunning. The opening sequence, right to the end credits. The entire movie had me on the edge of my seat.
It's a quick movie, approximately 90 minutes or so. So about 15 minutes in.....it starts. Pieces of a satellite orbiting the earth and crashes into the space shuttle that Sandra Bullock & George Clooney are working on. From there, it's over an hour of Sandra Bullock hurling through space, trying not to die, and attempting to battle zero gravity in order to get back to earth. She challenges the impossible and it is thoroughly entertaining.
The really cool thing about this movie is that before the movie starts, there is an opening segment that states some facts about space. For instance, the fact that there is no sound. So that fact is carried out throughout the entire movie. Any crash, any bang, any knock, any hit is completely silent. So there are some terrifying moments that are made extra intense because there is no sound. Freaking awesome.
Gravity is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture this year and it is well deserving. This is a good movie. Check it out and try to keep yourself on the ground. Yes indeed.
