cress: Visually stunning, with great direction from Cuaron, but I felt it could have been thrilling.
It's a marvel of achievement. The scale and scope are beautifully realized, and the viewer is totally immersed int the cold, dark, emptiness of space. There are some very intense sequences that are executed brilliantly, but I was left wanting more thrills. I think Cuaron missed a few opportunities in how he directed a some sequences, as I think he could have ratcheted up the tension a bit more. Still, he did a damn fine job.
Clooney and Bullock are fine. Bullock is rather reserved in her performance, which relieved me. I thought she might be the Sandra from SPEED, whining and complaining for 2 hrs, but luckily she was composed in her performance. She doesn't give an Oscar-worthy peformance, though. So quit saying she deserves an award, people!
It's probably in my top three films for 2013 so far. I highly recommend seeing it in 3D and on the largest screen possible. It's worth it.

Tanman32123: Amazing film. The obvious first thing you notice is how amazing the Special Effect are. Like cress said "Visually Stunning".
Great directing, great Story and great acting. I don't know what else there is to really say. Go see this.
