'Gravity' review: Critics are raving on film's opening weekend


There was plenty of star power in the new film Gravity thanks to George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, so it’s not a huge surprise that the flick is being met with some positive reviews from film critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, Gravity has an average rating of 9.1/10 and the TOMATOMETER comes in at a whopping 98 percent.

The sci-fi film is receiving praise for the stunning visuals and brilliant direction from Alfonso Cuarón, so it is safe to call this an overwhelming success.

Here is what the critics are saying about the film:

From Tony Macklin of TonyMacklin.netDirector Cuaron may lack imagination in plot and character, but he excels in style.

From Gary Wacott of the Tri-City HeraldThe closet I’ve ever been to being in space. There are times when you want to ask Sandra and George to move over because they and the so-so story are blocking the view.

From Jeff Beck of Examiner.comCuaron and his team have crafted a masterpiece that is so much more than it seems. All the pieces come together to form one of the most unforgettable movie-going experiences of recent memory.

From Mike McGranaghan of Aisle SeatA milestone in cinema. Ask me in twenty-five years about the most magical moviegoing excursions I’ve had, and I’m pretty sure I’ll cite the day I saw Gravity as one of them.

From Tim Brayton of Antagony & EcstacyA magnificent thriller, and one of the most dumbfoundingly impressive technological feats in the 20 years since Jurassic Park put the world on notice about CGI.
