GRAVITY (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Gravity—terrific cinematography with phenomenal viewing depth—plays its entire story with basically one character, Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock). There is one especially terrific scene when Dr. Ryan Stone opens the hatch of the space ship that can be appreciated due to its outstanding realism. The storyline is a bit thin, but somehow Director Afonso Cuarón takes that and makes an interesting film. The film dives a bit into the supernatural as character Ryan Stone receives beyond ‘normal’ help to preserve her life. Gravity is a decent film, family friendly.

Storyline

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a bio-medical engineer working on Hubble Space Telescope repairs, gets caught in a space debris storm. Houston orders her and co-worker, Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), to abort work and seek safety. Eventually, Dr. Ryan Stone is the sole survivor and has to find a way back to Earth.

Additional Thanks

Great Work for Director and Producer Alfonso Cuarón. Thank you to Executive Producers Christopher DeFaria, Nikki Penny, and Stephen Jones for making the film possible.
