A Tense and Extremely Beautiful Space Drama.
Gravity, the brainchild of Alfonso Cuarón, is what many would call a masterpiece. This terrifying tale of survival manages to pack more tension into its 90-minute runtime than all of the Alien movies combined, and it didn’t even require vicious monsters to do so. The vast vacuum of space coupled with the thought of helplessly floating through its rivers of emptiness induces real fear, the type you can truly feel, and the predicament of the astronauts will keep you on the edge of your seat until the credits roll.
At times the sheer scope and beauty of Gravity’s cinematography will leave you awe struck, providing a feeling of serenity even with the horrors being inflicted upon the main characters right before your eyes. Your mind will want to soak in the glorious camera work and special effects, but your heart will ache for the human factor. This is Gravity, and true to its namesake it will pull you in and keep a hold of you whether you want it to or not.
