Gravity (2013) Spoiler Free Review

Gravity (2013) 3D

Directed by Alfonzo Cuaron


Alfonzo Cuaron does not like many 3D films but has said that he likes a a small handful of other 3D films that like his were made with the third dimension in mind. He also stated that seeing it in 2D would be seeing it at 30% strength and I am inclined to agree as this is absolutely stunning with a depth and a clarity that can only come from a master craftsman. This space film set in modern times with modern technology follows a medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut (George Clooney) who work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space. The first 2 third is pitch perfect in all facets but the last third the scripting gets a little heavy handed and sentimental and the otherwise excellent score went into a few cliche's areas. This can be overlooked as the rest of the film is excellent with some white knuckle excitement inter-mixed with some quiet parts that might put people with a short attention span anxiety. I for one was enthralled throughout and was so into the story that I forgot to touch my snacks and from the well behaved crowd watching it seems that the feeling was cinema wide. I am not sure how this will convert to the small screen but for now it is the best film of the year.
