Just watched the movie Gravity last night.. I have seen the trailer before and honestly I was not impressed by it thus I was not expecting anything extraordinary when I entered the movie theaters. But BOY WAS I WRONG!
The movie started with a shot of Earth like I never saw it before and all through out the movie it repeatedly shows a different shot on a different angle, it is almost like the planet is another cast member.
One of my favorite scenes is when Ryan (Sandra Bullock) is in a tense and very dangerous scenario but on the back-drop it shows a contrasting beauty of the Northern-lights (aurora borealis)
speaking of cast members, they could not have picked a better cast, George Clooney’s intense but calm and collected facade as the Astronaut “Matt” and “Ryan” his complete opposite, an inexperienced Astronaut hired for her scientific and hard-ware expertise.
The movie took me on a roller-coaster ride, it has touched multiple aspects of human-life struggles.
First it showed how humans amid impossible circumstances can persevere through the impossible to acheive a goal, it also showed how critical teamwork and focus is in problem solving.
it also showed 2 different and very contrasting death scenarios.. sacrifice and suicide. And how noble one can be and how selfish is the other.
Hope and faith was also portrayed as a very important aspect on how we live our lives.
Ryan is an atheist and by the end of the movie she was converted.
All in all I will give this movie a 15/10 score.
Definitely worth watching specially on IMAX.
It was one hell of a ride.
