"Gravity" is out of this world

"Gravity" has no limits

Gravity is a 3-D space drama film starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as surviving astronauts from a damaged space shuttle. Bio-medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone, played by Bullock, is a Mission Specialist on her first space shuttle mission, accompanied by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski played by George Clooney, who is commanding his final expedition. 

Gravity had its world premiere at the 70th Venice International Film Festival on August 28, where it received universal acclaim from critics and audiences, praising the acting, direction, screenplay, cinematography, visual effects, production design, the use of 3D, and Steven Price's musical score.

It is very interesting how they filmed this movie because it is so focused/centered around special effects. When I saw commercials for this film it did not intrigue my interest, however, it has been receiving great reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 98% and viewers loved the 3-D aspect. 

The film was directed by five time Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron and cinematography was done by Emmanuel Lubezki. The two worked well together and produced a film that is extremely hard to make

The film uses long, uninterrupted shots that create suspense and drama. The acting in this film is also incredibly hard, as they acted in front of a green screen and had to create the atmosphere mentally. This is a well done film and pushes the limits of the film world.
