Gravity Movie Review
We all are glued to our stereotypical perception that a sci-fi can never be intermixed with emotions. This antithesis has been proved wrong by Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and is presently being deemed by critics as one of the best movies of the year.
Gravity is already been considered on the levels of “A Space Odyssey” by Stanley Kubrick which at present, stands as one of the best sci-fi movies ever made in the history of cinema. Cuaran, best known for making Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, portrays the story of two astronauts who are stranded in the outer space after their space mission goes haywire.
Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, “Gravity” has already been revered as a crowd-favourite. Sandra Bullock plays a biomedical engineer named Ryan Stone and is part of a space mission crew which is headed by Senior Astronaut of Clooney, Matt Kowalski. Both of them are out on a stroll in the space when hell breaks loose. In the vicinity, an anti-satellite test goes wrong and debris starts flying all over. As a result, there is a massive chain reaction in which the whole crew apart from Clooney and Bullock perishes.
Furthermore, Cuaran decided to make the movie in 3D which has added to the thriller quotient altogether. The camera work is nothing less than splendid and the chemistry between both the protagonists has been highlighted in a beautiful manner which makes it worth watching.
Through “Gravity”,Alfonso Cuaran has set a benchmark for all those filmmakers who have a penchant for making sci-fi flicks.
