Waited years to see this one. I'm very surprised by all the negative comments in here. The dialogue is minimalistic, in every sense of the word. Even corny at times. But the spectacle is so enthralling, the themes explored (adversity, letting go, spirituality, rebirth) are so vibrant throughout the 90 minutes that it completely demolish the arguments of shalowness. The music score is a masterpiece, so is this film.
More of an action movie than a thriller, Gravity lacks enough suspense expected of a movie about being stuck in space! I'm left dumbfounded by the choice of astronauts; the lack of training is nowhere near Watney-level style of survival - see The Martian instead. Bullock is interesting enough, but the script dialogue doesn't leave enough impact as the film ends.
"Do you wanna go back, or do you wanna stay here? I get it. It's nice here. You can just shut down all the systems, turn out all the lights, and just close your eyes and tune out everyone. There's nobody up here that can hurt you. It's safe. I mean, what's the point of going on? What's the point of living? But if you decide to go, then you gotta just get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride."
