Movie Review: Gravity

After seeing over a thousand movies in the last 12  years this is going to be a first for me. A 4 star review.

I keep trying to think of things that didn’t work for me but I could not think of anything. At two points in the movie I harkened back to the time I saw 2001 A Space Odyssey. Breath taking and mesmerizing at the same time. Alfonso Cuaron has created a modern day masterpiece.

A very simple story about the human will to survive with special effects that have gravitas ( no pun intended). I have no idea how most of the effects were achieved. This movie sets a new standard for space movies.

Don’t delay. SEE THIS MOVIE!

4 star out of 4
