Went to see this film last night in 3D and i just wanted to say to everyone that had a negative experience with 3D movies like myself that this movie will blow your freaking mind.
It’s the first time where i found the stereoscopic effect to be effective and not a distraction from the movie itself. It was so effective that i felt like i was being pulled from my seat and actually flew with the actors in space.
The camera is the real actor in this film, if you have read a review here and there you might have heard about it. Just wanted to confirm the fact it really is.
So yeah, you might be thinking god – another hype blahdieblah. Just let me say this. I have seen hundreds upon hundreds of movies and never before was i so convinced of the VFX then what was going on in the film, never before was i doubting on how they achieved certain shots unlike other films where i always had a clue on how they did some shots. Gravity however doesn’t give it away, it is so realistic and well made you actually start to believe they shot some of this stuff in actual space.
The VFX is masterful, the camerawork is mind boggling, Sandra plays her character amazingly well and the score that underlies all this is absolutely amazing.
In short, amazing film go see it. IN 3D!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I was wondering if this film was worth to watch.
I will definitely watch it after reading your opinion.
Agree 100% with Massfocus this is a must see in 3D! The VFX seem so real and convincing to me that I was even more emotionally invested in the storytelling. This is the first 3D movie I’ve watched where the 3D didn’t feel gimmicky, it really enhanced the experience.
I have seen it twice….
I just came from cinema…every frame of this movie is masterpiece.
This is the first movie in my life where the CGI really convinced me that there is no usage of CGI. No really, it’s hard not too consider they actually went to space and shot this movie.
Although I’m really not a fan of Sandra Bullock, she did a pretty good job in her lead role. Yet I’m still not a fan, there is just something unnatural about her performance in every movie I’ve seen her in so far that bothers me.
It seems to me George Clooney isn’t acting but rather just being himself, he puts out a great performance.
Nonetheless it is just as you say MassFocus, the camera is the real actor here. The camera acts as your eyes.
Sweet interview with the VFX Supervisor of the feature. Some amazing details being discussed. http://media.fxguide.com/fxpodcast/fxg-131008-Gravity.mp3
Saw it yesterday and i have to say: This movie is awesome!
It’s amazing how perfectly the 3D effect is used and how with just two actors a complete film succeeds while it is also extremely exciting. I also have to say i’ve never seen so many details in an animated explosion, it’s really stunning!
