Nov

20

 I watched the 3D version of the movie Gravity yesterday in a remote city theater in China. I noticed on IMDB that the official showing date is Nov. 20th. I wonder how it gets shown in China a couple days earlier. Perhaps because a Chinese satellite is featured in the film.

Anyhow, aside from a scene in space, the movie's story is very simple and nearly empty. It goes basically like this: while in the wild away from home, two teenagers suddenly discovered their bikes got ruined. To save the stranded girl, the boy surrendered his life. Then the girl struggled to reach to other unattended bikes. She finally got one (a Chinese one), and returned home with it.

I noticed it is rated 8.5/10 on IMDB, an unbelievably high score. It seems like a scam to me. I would give it 5 only for the space scene, otherwise just 2.

    I completely agree with your review. It’s a George Clooney exploitation flick.
