  • WHAT I LIKED: Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity,' offers a rather unique and all-consuming experience as it makes you feel awe, tension, excitement and bewildered confusion all at the same time by absorbing you into the world (or rather out of it) to the point where you forget about anything else. This is not only thanks to the visuals and score which are truly stunning and awe-inspiring, but it's also down to suprisingly excllent performances from Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, who manage to make it personal and play these roles with conviction and the changing emotions you might expect.
    On that note, this movie constantly flits moods and emotions which is why it doesn't drag or bore when it easily could have, and just whenever you think everything's okay something always happens to catch you off guard to maintain the tension perfectly.
    WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The sheer tension and bleakness does take away some of the potential for emotion - you don't neccessarily feel sympathy towards the characters, more for the situation itself, but this is still thanks to great performances
    VERDICT: Nothing short of bloody brilliant sci-fi realism, 'Gravity,' is a bleak, scary, edge-of-your-seat and out-of-world experience like no other. Just wow.
