Gravity (2013)


A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after a catastrophe destroys their shuttle and leaves them adrift in orbit. (IMDb)
The zero gravity action sequences here are well-crafted and breathtakingly terrifying, accentuated by Bullock’s great turn as the desperate (albeit shallow) protagonist, complimented nicely by Clooney’s typical jovial banter, and made into cinematic excellence with the help of amazing visuals, a tense score smartly edited, and probing camerawork that skillfully captures the claustrophobic anxiety of the film’s space catastrophe plot as well as its beautiful setting.
8/10 (Great)
