5.0 out of 5 stars talk about the worst first mission ever, 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: Gravity [Blu-ray] [2013] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Went to see this movie the other night on impulse and without knowing anything at all. Not a huge fan of either of the leads but for some reason i just had this idea in my head that it would be worth it. I had no idea what i was in for but i treated myself to an IMAX ticket. I sat down and got comfly with some popcorn...

The start sequence is so amazing and probably one of the only place for you go grab a breath before all hell breaks loose, literally. By the time the movie was over i had not even touched my pop corn and had almost torn the arm of the chair from the tension. My heart was racing but i was smiling my head off and wanted to watch it all over again. I could have watched another 5 hours of this movie yet it was perfect the length it is.

I am simply dazzled and amazed by the work that went in by everyone involved in making this, there were no short cuts or cheap shots. the acting is beyond the call of duty and must have been such a mind job. Bullock is outstanding and deserves a massive reward for her performance. Clooney just stole my heart from the beginning and fit into his role nice and snug.

Seriously, do yourself a favour and treat yourself to watching this superb movie with a huge screen and roaring sound that shakes the ground. I am most certainly going to see this again. Then im getting the bluray.

Did you actually see the movie "Gravity". Just checking because I agree with B.Appleby that it was superb and a credit to the Brit film industry. The whole point of this movie is not that its about zooming about a far off galaxy at warp 29. Its all about an accident in space and actually getting an idea of what it might be like. For instance, the bit where Sandra Bullock just ends up going round and round. This could easily happen and if you don't gave anyone to help... Great movie

Totally agree with you..the imax and 3d experience of this film left me speechless and i doubt a film will do that to me again for a long long time.Cuaron and his team seem to get better with each film they do.The director of photography who worked with him on children of men has once again weaved his magic hence the oscar!Its a sensory visual overload from start to finish with great performances from both bullock and clooney.

Personally I didn't watch this film in the cinema but picked it up yesterday from Sainsbury, anyway I liked the special effects and what not, and also think that this film is a good example of the strength of the human spirit, the sheer will to survive. Against all odds she managed to survive and we saw her journey. I thought this film was very unique in how it was done and was quite good. Well worth the 13 quid I paid.
