When you read the 1 star reviews here it slightly makes you despair. I get the feeling that most are just people who were always going to resent Sandra Bullock or who like to think of themselves as 'space geeks'. Well I am not Sandra Bullock fan in truth, and I do find the whole space thing fascinating but I loved this film.
Where do you start? Well first like many others have said this is THE FILM that 3 d was made for, forget Avatar and the rest, this is truly breathtaking at every level. Pitch perfect. The cinematography is equally wonderful, one of the best shot films I have ever seen, you wil really believe you are in space. The acting is really very good. Sandra Bullock is simply mesemerising, one of the best performances I have see in a long time. Wow for all my reservations she proves how brilliantly she can act, a perfromance that lights the film and in a same world wil surely win her an Oscar. The action scenes are simply fantastic, some of the best I have ever seen, the word breathtaking again comes to mind.
This is a great film. Action packed but thoughtful. It fills the screen and it fills your senses. Watch this and remind yourself what great cinema is.
