    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Sandra Bullock, in the performance of a lifetime, spends most of this wondrous wallop of a movie lost in space, alone where no one can hear her scream. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    See Gravity in theaters, because on television something will be lost. Alfonso Cuarón has made a rare film whose mood, soul and profundity is bound up with its images. To see such images diminished would be to see a lesser film, perhaps even a pointless one. show more

    The telling of this simple tale of survival required cutting-edge technology, but we don't notice the bells and whistles: They're on hand to immerse us in an unforgettable personal story. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    In one form or another, motion pictures have been with us since the middle of the 19th century, but there's never been one like Gravity. What's new in Alfonso Cuarón's 3-D space adventure is the nature of the motion. It's as if the movie medium had been set free to dance in a bedazzling zero-gravity dream sequence. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A wildly suspenseful zero-g tale of survival 350 miles beyond the ozone layer, Alfonso Cuarón's space saga is emotionally jolting - and physically jolting, too. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    At once the most realistic and beautifully choreographed film ever set in space, Gravity is a thrillingly realized survival story spiked with interludes of breath-catching tension and startling surprise. show more

    Bob Mondello NPR

    Cuaron and his son Jonas have felt the need not just to come up with ways to keep the characters talking — there's even a mildly sneery reference to NPR at one point — but to brush in backstory and motivation, quite as if the peril of being isolated in space with a limited supply of oxygen weren't sufficient rationale for the characters' actions. show more

    The fact that Cuarón’s film strives to be something more than thoroughly harrowing — no small feat in and of itself — solidifies its existence as a marvel of not just technical craft but sheer imagination as well show more

    Compared by some to “2001: A Space Odyssey,’’ Cuarón’s relatively intimate space epic is equally groundbreaking in the spectacular way it depicts space. show more

    Very well done movie. The theater i was in was especially quiet so that made up for everything :) Now, without trying to spoil anything...i really thought there was going to be an alien attack..but i guess that was cancelled due to it being to predictable. Other than that..Sandra bullock and Clooney were a fantastic team. Working together (being a survival movie) and in general making the audience feel as if they were getting anxious. This type of movie i truly enjoy. I do wish there was more action as in some more debris. Maybe landing on a planet would be pretty sick. Us audience are looking for something new. Well done movie, very proud :)

    I honestly loved this movie. It had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Not to mention the cinematography was absolutely beautiful, and Sandra Bullock's acting was incredible. Overall I thought it was incredibly well done.

    Let's see, didn't know female astronauts wore mascara on space missions. Clooney horrible as usual..does everything he says have to be hitting on a woman? Don't say it..."You're gonna have to let me go or your not gonna make it" Geeze. Oh, and did Sandra Bullock get a boob job??

    "Kowalski to Houston do you copy?" Should have been the last line in the movie as Bullock's character Ryan crawled from the waters of rebirth. It is a story of facing one's death lost in space, more than the obvious story of survival. She was the casualty of the expedition explains scientifi errors

    Not only was this movie technically incorrect from start to ********** was physically incorrect from start to finish airlock. For example, one door open to space. With no sally port doesn't work that way had equalized pressure. As I said physically incorrect technically incorrect
