Think 3D Blu-ray has had its day? This stellar hi-def platter will convince you otherwise…
When their space shuttle is destroyed by a massive cloud of orbital debris, astronauts Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) find themselves in a race against time to find another way back down to Earth.
With Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón has crafted a spectacular cinematic blockbuster that is both a pulse-pounding hi-tech thriller and a metaphor for the human condition. This curious dichotomy also extends to Gravity’s creation, with Cuarón and his colleagues having to employ the very latest, cutting-edge filmmaking techniques and technologies at every stage of the production process to bring this surprisingly intimate and humanistic tale to life.
The result is both a technological marvel and an utterly enthralling piece of popcorn cinema. One that draws you into its orbit with its spectacular digital effects and edge-of-the-seat thrills, but keeps you hooked through its intimate characterisation.
