The space epic ‘Gravity’ starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney opened on Oct. 4 with more buzz than any movie this year. But before you launch out to see the flick, find out what all the fuss is about.

Ever wonder what it’d feel like to float into the boundlessness of space? Well, now you can finally found out because of Gravity (in theaters on Oct. 4). The sci-fi epic starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney is tackling outer space like no movie before, and has people in awe and gasping for air — especially critics. Read what they had to say!

‘Gravity’ Reviews

New York Times

The main challenge facing the director, Alfonso Cuarón (who wrote the script with his son Jonás), is not visualizing the unimaginable so much as overcoming the audience’s assumption that we’ve seen it all before. After more than 50 years, space travel has lost some of its luster, and movies are partly to blame for our jadedness. It has been a long time since a filmmaker conjured the awe of 2001: A Space Odyssey or the terror of Alien or captured afresh the spooky wonder of a trip outside our native atmosphere.

Mr. Cuarón succeeds by tethering almost unfathomably complex techniques — both digital and analog — to a simple narrative.

Los Angeles Times

Gravity is out of this world. Words can do little to convey the visual astonishment this space opera creates. It is a film whose impact must be experienced in 3-D on a theatrical screen to be fully understood.

New York Post

How strongly do I recommend Gravity’? Well, I’ve seen it three times already, more than any other film, ever, before release. It’s the sort of movie that reminds me why I loved movies in the first place.

Rolling Stone

The script, by Cuarón and his son Jonás, occasionally drifts into dangerous emo territory, but the film’s images speak with heart-rending eloquence. Cuarón’s artistry is evident in films as diverse as Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (the third and best of the Potter series) and the indisputably brilliant Children of Men. The Mexican-born Cuarón is a true visionary. In tandem with the Bullock tour de force – she blends ferocity and feeling into a triumphant, award-caliber portrait of grace under pressure – he turns Gravity into a thing of transcendent beauty and terror. It’s more than a movie. It’s some kind of miracle.

New York Magazine

I saw Gravity in 3-D, and so should you, sitting as close as you dare to the biggest screen possible, preferably in a seat like the one I had, which rocked back and forth as I recoiled from the impact of light, sound, and my own bedazzled (and bewitched and bewildered) senses.

Wow — you can get chills just from reading this movie’s reviews. So if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go run out and see Gravity right NOW! What about you, HollywoodLifers?
