Seriously?

90 minutes of grunting, hyperventilating and unrealistic space action. Waste of time.

Poor 3D on blu ray; very surprised
Verified purchase
This is a 3D only review of Gravity 3D (3D + Blu-ray + Ultraviolet) selling now on Prime for $12.99. VERY surprised at the poor 3D here. Cinemablend's "To 3D or Not" scale ranks Gravity 35 out of 35, but their reviews are of the film seen in a theater. The only thing I can assume here is that the blu ray is different. There is nearly NO 3D in most of this movie. (LG OLED65E6P) There are a few scenes of Sandra Bullock floating through narrow corridors and debris flying toward you that offer some good 3D, but that's 5 minutes. The vast majority of the film on this blu ray appears flat. Removed my glasses several times and saw nearly no separation between images on screen. Didn't see this one in the theater, so I can only judge the blu ray. The movie is good, but surprised to review this 3D blu ray as one of the worst in my collection.

Seriously??

This movie won 7 awards??? For what? I finally had to just stop watching. Repetative, boring and really stretched the imagination. What crap Hollywood is churning out. Big star names with a ridiculous plot. Don't waste your money. What a joke.

Best movie of the year? NO
Verified purchase
If there was a story in there somewhere, I missed it. Guess I didn't smoke the right kind of weed first. Sure, the visual effects were occasionally pretty cool, but there wasn't enough dialog for the actors to do much acting. What we had to sit through was endless gasping, grunting, unintelligible radio noise, and pretty much nothing else that made any sense. Any movie with Sandra Bullock or George Clooney is usually a sure thing. This movie was a complete waste of time, money, and talent. Finally, we get to the ending. Really? That's it?

REALLY bad movie.
Verified purchase
This movie is so bad it is like a joke. I cannot believe it won any awards, but maybe seeing it in 3-D (if you are into that; I am not) makes up for the seriously terrible dialog and acting.

so insultingly unrealistic it distracts from the lack of plot
Verified purchase
visuals and sound is amazing. setting is cool. bullock is great as usual. sorry, spoilers ahead.

plot - terrible and thin. clooney plays a chipper space cowboy with no back story. bullock plays a doctor / mission specialist with a tragic backstory which is revealed in about 1 line of dialog. if this is supposed to rope us into caring about her character struggles, it fails because there isn't really enough time given to the characters to struggle with decisions and for the viewer to get invested in her. things just happen to her, the character appears to have very little agency, and the fact that the space-physics are so unpredictable and wrong make it completely unclear what she even should do, which further undermines her agency. we get ONE scene where she struggles with agency after the ONE line of backstory. that's the character arc. a single moment.

science - nonexistent. for a movie where the entire plot revolves around the terror of inertia in zero g, they get it wrong in almost every scene just to create drama, and if you know even the smallest amount about space it is immediately obvious and distracting. I get that things need to go wrong for movie plots to have drama, but in this film things that are very unlikely to go wrong go wrong (cabin fires really?) and things that are unlikely to go right, go right (uncontrolled re-rentry vehicle in an unplanned re-entry trajectory is chaotically tumbling but suddenly stabilizes and happens to land perfectly in a .... lake? and then it's flotation doesn't deploy?)

combine this with the fact that bullock is alone by the midpoint of the movie, and we KNOW she can't die because then the movie would end. what follows is another 45 minutes of invincible plot-armor against chaotic and unrealistic things happening.

i cannot believe this movie won awards. it does a couple of things right; cinematography and acting, and everything else so, so wrong.

Wonderful DVD+Blu-Ray+3D-Blu-Ray package - but expired digital code :(
Verified purchase
"Digital Copy" problem: Customers should be aware that this edition contains an expired/invalid digital license code, so it doesn't in fact come with a digital copy as advertised. If you want the digital copy you will have to purchase it separately or order an edition manufactured within the past year that comes with a license redemption code that is not expired.

The primary selling point for my purchase was the digital version was included along with 3D-BR+BR+DVD versions, so I removed a star. The physical copies are great. If there were a way to review the seller, I would review the seller separately, but customers can't review this seller. I have tested them and watched the Blu-Ray versions through completely and I think this is a wonderfully-made release by Warner Bros.

If you haven't seen this movie, I won't spoil it. You may find it interesting, thrilling, suspenseful, exciting, fun, dramatic - it has action, and I think it is enjoyable for many reasons. The performance of the cast is a large part of why this movie is good. If you do not like the people cast to play the characters you might not like the movie, of course. :)

Um..wow-

I needed to get to sleep one night. It was about midnight and I felt wide awake. I saw this title and I thought, “Oh, an outer space movie with Clooney and Bullock- that’ll make me sleepy.” I figured they would take forever setting things up, maybe set up a little romance with the two of them.
I was wrong.
Only a few minutes in, I was already gripping the edge of my seat. There was no rest during the story, and never did It have a section where it would have been easy to just pause for the night.
So I was compelled to finish the movie- needing to find out what happened next.
Concluding the movie in the wee hours of the morning, I was still wide awake- my mind racing- processing the story. I was a little tired the next day, but it was worth it- this is a great movie..

Just don’t watch it if you’re trying to calm down and go to sleep…
