Rated PG-13 / 1 hr 30 min / Drama - Sci Fi - Thriller

What is it about?

The Russians blow up one of their sattelites, and it cases a debris field. No big deal.  Russians blow stuff up sometimes.  The debris field causes a chain reaction that makes a huge debris field, and it's heading right for Sandra Bullock and George Clooney! Oh Noes!  The other cast members are there just to die.  After the debris field comes through, it's Sandra and George floating in space.

You will like it if...  

You like looking at Ooo Shiny!  You might also like it if you get an erection every time George Clooney or Sandra Bullock show up on screen.  There are some impressive visuals in this movie.  There is also a lot of tension because Sandra is always running out of air.  It's a survival movie.  It's like Cast Away where Sandra is Tom Hanks and George Clooney is Wilson (the volleyball).  Unfortunately in between the action scenes, the movie is Sandra Bullock floating in space and freaking out.  Cast Away was a much better movie.  The story in this movie is either non-existant or very predictable.  Two minutes into the movie you already know a certain character is going to die.  There are three major sections in the movie, and all three are mostly a rehash of the previous section.  There is enough action in it to distract you from the films shortcomings, but the movie was too vapid for my tastes.  A lot of people will enjoy this movie for the shiny pictures and tense action.  A lot of people will hate it because it is severely lacking in every other respect.
