The movie is good, they say. Is recommended to watch, they say. And damn right my friends were after they watch Gravity. So buckle your seatbelt and prepared for launch. We are leaving gravity.


Space, the final frontier…..

Space had always been a fascinating large vast of emptiness playground for science-fiction series and movies. It has capture that moment of thrill and mystery of what goes beyond out of there. Are we alone? They asked. Billions and billions of countless of stars out there. Space has always been a mysterious place to seek with. Seeing all this, we will start to imagine what is like living in a universe of science fiction.

Imagine yourself as a creator of a science fiction movie, what do you want to see in your universe? What do you want to achieve? Most notably like Star Trek, Star Wars and Battlestar Galatica. These trio of the best have came a long way to plant those wild ideas of space craziness and imaginations in your mind. To them, the universe is a dangerous place. Never in life ever come close to grasp that attention that will sometime leaves you breathless at the edge of your seat as you watch most of their epic stunts and evasive moves.

Anyway, back to where I had start off. Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, Gravity is about a medical engineer and an astronaut who work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space. I saw its trailer when watching The Purge, and gotten all thrill about it. I’m a big fan of science-fiction. Seems like a “must-see” type of movies. And for sure, it turns out a big hit. Some of my pals who had watch it had given thumbs about it. Its worth the watch! =)

So me and two of my pals were rooted by the full gravity when we watched the movie. The story begins where these two and their crew were working aboard the space shuttle named Explorer. Moments later, Mission Control warns the team about a space debris, which comes from a Russian missile strike on a defunct satellite. It had caused a chain reaction of destruction and that they must abort the mission. Shortly afterward, communications with Mission Control are lost, though both continue to transmit in hope that the ground crew can still hear them.

More chaos soon strike from the rain of debris. Here’s where I decided to stop, so that those who haven’t watch were not spoiled by the spoilers! =D

But overall the movie was great. I give it a 8 out of 10. The start of the movie had already reminds me of Star Trek. The entire pace and story was definitely well engaging. Really makes you focus and leaving you breathless at the edge of your seat. The makers of the movie had done an outstanding job in making it so realistic. Especially in capturing of what its like to do a spacewalk. Its just too real, like as if it was been film up there in zero gravity.

The film taken will flies about and around from the start till somewhere at the center of the movie as you watched. Like as though you are performing a spacewalk with the crew. Not really for those who are suffering from a bad headache. Too tipsy turby. Other than that, only two well-known actors were use. So for some, they may think the movie had came out as rather cheap since only two of them acted in it. For George Clooney himself, he had acted in another similar science-fiction movie like this. So I guess he was pretty much adapted to take up the role to experience another weightlessness environment. Indeed, both celebrities suited quite well for this movie.

Throughout the movie was one hell of a ride up there, before the last sole survivor finally landed back on the full gravity of Earth. Gravity, at last!

So if you are a fan of science fiction or love the work of astronauts, this movie is recommended for you. Its breathtaking and indeed, fascinating when you are just floating up there endlessly…….
