a space thriller that’s out of this world...

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Al­fonso Cuarón’s awe­some space thriller pro­vokes jaw-drop­ping won­der, dizzying ver­tigo, heart­stop­ping ten­sion, spine-tin­gling shocks and vis­ceral fear. San­dra Bul­lock’s med­i­cal en­gi­neer is on her first space mis­sion in the com­pany of Ge­orge Clooney’s NASA veteran when de­bris from a Rus­sian satel­lite de­stroys their shut­tle, strand­ing them in the abyss of space. Can they find a way back to Earth? As Cuarón sets off a chain reaction of nar­ra­tive crises, the en­su­ing drama is in­cred­i­bly grip­ping. The spec­ta­cle is of­ten dis­ori­ent­ing, but Bul­lock’s gutsy re­silience and Clooney’s folksy charm give the film its hu­man touch. Per­haps this is the clos­est most of us will ever come to be­ing in space. Dir: Al­fonso Cuarón 2013, 12, 110min
