It looks quite awesome. Even though it shows a shuttle and the ISS being destroyed in I guess a cascading orbital debris event. From the write-up the director apparently took pains to make it visually and technically accurate, to the limit that you can in Hollywood.

I'm thinking of going to see it, looks interesting. Not sure of Sandra Bullock as an astronaut, and I hope there's some technical meat left and it's not too Hollywoodised, but it looks promising...

Quite good. It has its technical flaws, rounded corners, and it could'a /should'a ended better, but it's overall very well done. A bit melancholy (you might even cry) and tense. For most people it's an action/disaster drama, for space enthusiasts, it's a horror movie.

I liked it, especially that it's a pretty simple movie, in a way as simple as outer space itself. No huge world or complicated histories, but a nice story set in a real, near-future LEO, with enough drama and decent acting. I'm happy to accept a bit of poetic licence with the laws of orbital mechanics especially as everything else technical was pretty darn well done for a movie. Good for space nuts as well as ordinary people :-).

I really like all effects, but at the moments get little bit boring. Is funny that at the end we lost shuttle, ISS, Hubble, Chinese space station, and facebook. I also made a report about it: http://newplanetpictures.com/does-gravity-shows-the-reality-of-space/
