'Gravity' like space - empty
Gravity is all show no substance. The relationship between George Clooney’s experienced astronaut on his last mission and Sandra Bullock’s inexperienced scientist turned astronaut gets the film off to a great start.
I never thought I would praise George Clooney, but he brings the right amount of compassion, command and stability to the role.
When the disaster hits, the movie is tense. Throughout the film, the right buttons are pushed, but they have no effect. You know how you are supposed to feel, but aside from the tension, you do not really feel anything.
Maybe the biggest problem with the movie is that it doesn’t really have anything to say. The special effects were okay, but you can see better special effects on Nova.
Gravity ended about 10 minutes too late. A more ambiguous ending would have been better for conversation. The CGI was not believable. There were parts where my brain knew it was Bullock, but it just didn’t look like her.
I wanted to like Gravity, but raised expectations and seeing Captain Phillips the night before may have doomed it from the start.
