Outside of being disappointed that there wasn’t a Rotten Tomato’s Top Critic that made a “Defying Gravity” joke/reference within their review, this is hands down the best film you will see in 2013. It’s a marriage of special effects; storytelling, an amazing performance and a thrill ride like nothing you’ve ever seen before. I’ve been comparing it as an odd hybrid of JURASSIC PARK and “2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
In a year where countless special effects heavy box office smash hits won’t be remembered by a viewer browsing through future Redbox selections, GRAVITY will be a feature that professors and teachers will be talking about for years to come. It’s a near flawless survival horror story set against the backdrop of a rebirth metaphor in space where not since ALIEN has a film truly had you believe the tagline: “no one can hear you scream.”
