Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Music: Steven Price
Verdict: Two astronauts stranded in the terrifying expanse of space.
Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in 'Gravity', a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film has been directed by Oscar-nominee Alfonso Cuaron.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone-tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.
The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left.
What links many of the greatest films ever made is their ability to transport the viewer to a different time and place, and, in the case of some films, to an entirely new universe. Not since James Cameron's Avatar in 2009 have I enjoyed an experience as immersive as Gravity. Achieved by seamlessly merging live action with the most advanced visual effects technology especially developed for this film, Gravity takes us to outer space in a way that no movie has before. For all its slick technical wizardry, Gravity is about hope and courage and the will to come out alive. To best enjoy it, go in with patience and an open mind. I'm going with four-and-a-half out of five.
Tense, unnerving and arresting, every scene of the psychological thriller gives you gooseflesh. The spectacular special effects make you feel like you are a part of the film. For instance, every time Bullock takes a long, deep breath, you can feel yourself doing the same. That's the impact of Gravity. It's an experience. A game-changer of sorts, the film is bound to revolutionise special effects in movies.Cuaron keeps his film as realistic as it can get. No melodrama, no far-fetched stylised action scenes or convenient plot twists. The film stays unpredictable till the end. To sum it up, there are films and then there's Gravity. For an edge-of-the-seat-rollercoaster-ride experience, watch it only in IMAX 3D. Note: You may not like this movie if taut and realistic space films are not your cup of tea.
Gravity which takes everything he has ever done and then he not just reinvents his own oeuvre but also the very language of cinematic story telling because as the film unfolds and if you jolt yourself out off the captivating narrative you will realise that you are 17 minutes into the film and you have been watching a single take so brilliantly orchestrated that for a moment you wouldnt be wrong in saying that this is the greatest choreography of actors, camera, lightning, camerawork, VFX all being conducted in absolute sync with the vision of the director
No lavish ensemble, rousing back ground music, smart Alec one-liners, or any form of trickery to indulge you , Gravity is the simplest of stories to be told on the big screen. 3D has never felt so real and over powering like it does in Gravity. Gravity sets a new bench mark in film making. One step ahead of James Camerons Avatar, it breaks new ground not just visually but also in terms of storytelling. Watch it in 3D and be mind blown!
