Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in this heart-pounding thriller written, set in the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with Clooney as a veteran astronaut in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving the two completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
This film is sublime. It is visually stunning and the idea is so simple yet so well done. There were three occasions where I thought if I were a little bit more of an emotional person I would have most definitely cried. Sandra Bullock is so convincing in her role and manages to draw you in with not the smallest of back stories. An amazing piece of cinematography and a must watch. Definitely buying this when it is released. Fantastic.
I hope they will get a proper recognition they deserve as it's a truly masterpiece.
Don't believe all the hype!
The first half is truly the most frustrating film I've ever watched. "Stuck in space and clueless" would be more appropriate for a title. If you want to watch Sandra Bullock act like a helpless waste of space for an hour or so this is just the film for you. Howling like a dog, gazing into space while her air is running out, just the person to pick for a space mission. She does better as an undercover beauty queen..
I've never yelled "just get on with it" so often in a movie and am writing this instead of watching it it really is that bad!
If you can bear the first bit then it does get better...
