Gravity Review - 4 Stars
“Gravity” tells the story of a rookie space astronaut — played by Sandra Bullock –unexpectedly hit by space debris and hurtled into space. George Clooney plays a more experience astronaut intent on saving her. That bare bones plot plays out against some of the most eye-popping special effects ever assembled for a movie. “Gravity”s combination of music, effects, and story elevate it to a new level of movie making. I believe it makes the best use of technology since “Avatar”. This package comes in a tightly packed 90 minutes. “Gravity” moves into the same league as “2001” “E.T.” and “Apollo 13”. Did I mention the neat touch of using Ed Harris’ voice for Houston command central? Yeah, well consider that. “Gravity” rates 4 stars as one of our time’s most important movies. Does it deliver what it promises? A stunner. Is it entertaining? completely compelling. Is it worth the price of admission? A must see.
