If you're a genuine movie lover, Gravity never confiscates your attention out of it, you'l literally get glued to the breathtaking cinematic experience and finally comprehend that it's one heck of a masterpiece.
Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity explicates the narrative of two astronauts who are on a space mission trying to fix some physical hitches. All in a sudden things go terribly wrong as they need to abort the mission immediately and get back to their space station. Did things perform well in their travel? Find out in Gravity!
Now! I'm absolutely looking forward to Gravity, the trailers blew me away and my expectations were extremely high. Did it reach upto my expectations? I rather say it was beyond everything I expected it to be, technically and visually. And undoubtedly one of the best theatre experiences I've had this year.
Alfonso Cuaron's technique in delivering a space catastrophic movie has to be appreciated. The shots in space in particular were astounding and gorgeous to watch. Mainly the opening shot which lasted like about 15 minutes was a visual splendor. And what impressed me the most, is that he left much more room for character development which was quite a thing to fit into a 90 minute fast paced movie. Each and every shot was dealt with care and I'm really surprised to the fact that the whole movie was shot with a green screen behind.
Cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki was noteworthy. The long takes with rotating camera technique is brilliant, quite a hectic job to really imagine things around and move with the characters. Emmanuel does it with extreme ease and there was no single moment that I really felt that the camera work was disturbing. Extraordinary work!
Visuals in the movie are astonishing, undeniably the best I've seen till date. Every shot was crystal clear and pragmatic, mainly the visuals of earth are an absolute treat to watch. Definitely a must watch in IMAX 3D, you'l completely love it!
Sandra Bullock is amazing in the movie, her character was beautifully crafted with much needed strong emotional value, and she indeed outplayed it really well in critical timings. Definitely an oscar worthy performance. George Clooney was decent in his minimal screen presence and absolutely stood as a backbone to Bullock's character.
To conclude, Gravity is a masterpiece in every aspect and is a complete inspiration for visualistic movies. A must watch movie only in theatres and in 3D, you'l definitely have a good time around if you're a ingenious movie lover. Unquestionably, the best movie of the year till date and I hope that it'l stay on my #1 spot by the end of the year. I'm going big and strong, I'm giving five out of five stars to Gravity.
My Rating - 5/5
