Gravity – a review

gravity a review

Take this review with a grain of salt. I watched Gravity in the back of a car on the way to Atlantic City with a bloody mary in my hand. I liked it, didn’t love it, but that may because the rocking of the car combined with Sandra Bullock’s incessant spinning and the vodka was triggering vertigo.

Gravity is the story of Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock), a scientist with nothing to live for since her daughter died in a freak schoolyard accident. She goes on a space mission with Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) a veteran (and adorable) astronaut on his last mission. Disaster strikes, the two are catapulted into space with practically no lifeline.

Bad things keep happening, but ultimately Stone is reborn. We know this because of a less than subtle scene where she is floating like a fetus.

The beginning and the end were action packed. The middle was a little slow. I love Bullock and Clooney as actors, so it was worth the couple hours of my life. There is violence and language, but no sex, so depending on your parental tolerance and how your kids react to scary scenes, you can consider it for a Family Movie Night.
