Shorts: Gravity (2013)

George Clooney seem to select serious science fiction movies when he does a genre movie. He was in Solaris(2002) and now in Gravity. Well, you could argue how serious Gravity actually is. It is serious compared to some other movies that fell under scifi banner. But it is not as serious as it could have been or as serious as it tries to look.

Movie tries to look serious scifi movie, but it has too many close calls and characters do too many stupid things for movie to be really serious science fiction movie. But that doesn't make it bad movie. When movie tries to sell itself as realistic, you tend to see even minor flaws. Beginning of this review might sound negative because of that.

Movie itself is great, when you forget, what it tries to be and what it could have been, if it was what it tried to be. Movie looks great. Both actors give good performances. Story keeps you hooked even thought I would have liked more breathers. After all this was marketed as slow pace and realistic movie. You might be disappointed if you expected something like that. If you take it as it comes, you might like the movie.
