I wasn't sure of what the think of Gravity when I saw the trailer. I didn't know what I was looking at. Still, I stuck at the back on my head as something I should look out for. Then I read IGN's glowing review and knew I had to catch it. It also didn't hurt that a reviewer in You Tube I followed has equally glowing things to say.
In short, it's a disaster movie in space. But the stakes are so much higher and more interesting. It's even heightened by the faithfulness to zero-g environment and lack of sound. The only things you hear for 95% of the film are what the character itself could actually hear, which makes seeing a space station get obliterated in absolute silence all the more unsettling.
What this silence allows, however, is the score to sit a bit further forward than it might. And it's really quite wonderful. I ordered a copy of it on my way out of the theater.
The film is PG-13 for violence, some strong language, and a little gore (there's a few floating dead bodies). But, really, I don't think kids over 10 will have problems with it. Especially if they're okay with any of the Transformer films.
But, really, it's a great film, and we haven't seen its like in a long time, if ever. Try to catch it in 3D if you can, it's really effective, and I hate 3D.
