Seen the film when it first came out and i thought it was brilliant. I recently updated my AVR to a Dolby Atmos enabled system and found out that Gravity remastered there original soundtrack with Atmos.

For this reason i went ahead and purchased this copy and unfortunately i ended up receiving the original DTS soundtrack version, not ATMOS!

Due to the faff that came with sending the Blu-Ray back i decided to keep it instead.

Oh well its only a fiver..

It's strange, when I saw this film at the cinema I thought it quite awful. Yes, the special effects are spectacular and Sandra Bullock was her usual gorgeous self but, at that time I wasn't ready for it and went into visual overflow, walking out on the film after about 30 minutes.

This was really unfair because I didn't give the film enough of a chance and so I watched it on Amazon once or twice and then decided to get the Blu-ray so that I could view it in UHD. On the visual aspects of the film there is nothing I can possibly think of that can detract from the magnificence of this film, nor can I be critical of the actors, and I am not a great fan of George Clooney.

This is a film I shall probably watch 2 or 3 times a year and one which I will enjoy each time.

AN OFTEN UNDER-RATED 'VISUAL-TREAT' WORTHY OF A VIEWING'
A Film almost five years in the making of.
Special effects perfection an absolute minimum requirement.
(The special features on board essential viewing)
'Explorer' on the final day of it's mission is hit by space debris from a
satellite that has been destroyed to advert the risks involved with
large pieces of debris falling to earth.
The Shuttle has catastrophic damage, other than 'Dr Ryan Stone'
(Sandra Bullock) and 'Matt Kowalski' (George Clooney) all other crew
members have perished.
The two survivors now have to try and reach the 'Space Station' to use
as a go between in the hope of eventually reaching the 'Chinese Station'
to board an escape pod.
'Matt' and 'Ryan' become separated as they reach the first objective.
The tension and problems continue to mount as time after time things
continue to go wrong.
The film is perhaps the most gripping and tense eighty-odd minutes of
drama I've seen for many a day.
An outstanding performance from 'Sandra Bullock'
Superb attention to detail making the film virtual-reality to watch, this a
hi-tech visual-effects spectacle to behold.
A remarkable movie achievement.
(Whether you watch it on 3D-2D or indeed DVD you'll not be disappointed)
There are nearly 3-hours of special features (in 2D) on board.
# Experience the meticulous innovation necessary to create the world of
zero gravity.
# Witness the physical and emotional demands 'Sandra Bullock' endures
on set.
# Journey with 'Alfonso Cuar'on' through four years of filmmaking to forthest
boundries of cinema.
Worthy of the 'Oscars' and 'Bafta's awarded

This isn't an all-time great film but it is very good and very watchable. The special effects and cinematography are excellent.

A predictable but still enjoyable film. Good performances from Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (basically the only performances).

Not a lot of action but a good film non the less. What a place to be all alone.
