My first thought about the movie while watching the trailer was; “Extremely exaggerated”. And then reading the reviews about the movie in Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which were good. It got me wanting to see the movie. And it surprised me.
I am speechless about Sandra Bullock’s performance in the movie. About the way that she basically led the entire film. She was splendid. So was George Clooney, he kept the balance of the movie. He was the funny character. While Sandra Bullock, was the survival character. And the gravity, the destruction itself.
The special effects left me breathless. But what I most liked about this movie was the emotion that caused to me. Hopelessness and despair. All at once. It was like I was inside the movie. Feeling the same thing as Sandra Bullock was feeling. Like I was an invisible character, right there. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. I am amazed that Alfonso Cuarón accomplished that.
But answer me that… how would you feel being alone in space, with no oxygen, with no communication and God knows how many kilometers apart from gravity and earth? I rather die. Seriously.
I find it funny when people come to me and say that this movie “sucks”, but the truth is that they don’t get the perfection of it. I’m glad that I got to experienced one of the best movies made in space, and if not the best.
One thing is for sure, I will get very angry if Sandra Bullock doesn’t win the Oscar for Best Actress. She deserves it.
10 out of 10 stars!
