The Force of Gravity

Been a while since I did one of these but this time it's worth it. Every once in a while I watch a movie that makes me want to blog a review and this is one of them. I hadn't got much plot details about it but knowing the main stars I decided to give it a try. Was expecting some science fiction movie but was surprised to find that it was almost real life- there have been some scientific inconsistencies brought up but I won't dwell on those.

I think the most striking thing about this movie is the use of 3D technology, the visuals are stunning especially the opening sequence and other bits and pieces like where a nut flies almost to you face. I really wonder how they made it.

Technical bits aside the acting was pretty good too and I found it interesting how some shots were from the protagonist's point of view and you could almost feel what the were feeling. The scenario was reminiscent of Tom Hanks in Castaway but this time in space and Sandra Bullock and George Clooney did a good job of it. Found the suspense to be another good feature of the film and all the things going wrong adding to it.

Without adding too many plot details I tell you to check it out- preferably in 3D to get the full experience. Happy watching and tell me what you think!
