At the movies: Gravity
Two astronauts and one scientist are working outside of the space shuttle when they get word that Russia has shot down a non-working satellite resulting in debris hurtling through space at dangerous speeds. They’re urged to return to the spacecraft but don’t move quickly enough and two of them, an astronaut and the scientist find themselves stranded and struggling to survive.
I’m not much of a science fiction fan but agreed to see Gravity because I’m a fan of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. I thought the acting was fine – Sandra Bullock did a great job and acted solo in much of the movie – but the movie wasn’t a good fit for me. I tried to relax and enjoy the story but I found it slow and had trouble suspending disbelief. I also got annoyed with all the breathing noises throughout the movie.
I think the movie is fine, even though it was just okay for me – science fiction lovers will want to see this in the theater but others may want to wait to rent it.
