“Gravity” is a Sci- Fi Thriller directed by Alfonso Cuarón, and written by Cuarón his brother Jonas Cuarón. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat with dramatic and suspenseful events throughout its entirety. The movie opens suspenseful and ends the same way.

“Gravity” tells the story of a medical engineer, Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut on his last flight, Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), who are stranded in space after a Russian satellite explodes and leaves them adrift. Bullock and Clooney were excellent in this movie, and this is my favorite role played by Bullock yet. Not only is the plot line of this story well written and entertaining, but both actors portrayed the emotions and personalities of their characters exceptionally and it couldn’t have been done any better.

Despite how it may seem going into this movie, it is anything but boring. I was hesitant about how a movie about floating around in space could last even an hour and a half, but it was perfect. Visually the movie is amazing, it feels as if you are in space with the characters. The movie uses the point of view of the astronauts at some points, and by doing that you can feel their fear, stress, struggle, and every other emotion. The screenplay was also done well and paired perfectly with the movie.

In my opinion, this movie is good for all types of movie goers. From Sci- Fi, Thriller, suspense, emotion, to even a little comedy, there is something for everyone in this movie.

Rating: 9.5/10
