Mini Review - Gravity

Gravity (out Oct 3) stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts who become stranded in space. Forget the over-the-top stuff we normally see in action films. This film shows how to extract maximum tension from a minimalist story. A few moments feel too constructed but Alfonso CuarĂ³n direction will leave you in awe (and also wondering how he did it). Grade: A.
