The 3-D movie Gravity, broke records this weekend with the biggest box office take ever for a movie released in October.
The Oct. 6, Wall Street Journal reports that the new record, $55.6 million, indicates that audiences “will choose the 3-D screenings for movies they believe are worth the higher price.”
Part of the reason behind the record breaking weekend for the science fiction tale which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney is the rave reviews and recommendations by critics of the 3-D version of the film.
But what critics failed to say is that the movie lacked a good plot – there was really no story. Although the movie was entertaining, if you enjoy dodging space junk flying towards you at high speeds, those seeking a tale that is satisfying beyond the ever present Murphy’s Law amidst the never present field of gravity will suffer disappointment.
If you manage to stay for the end hoping the movie will redeem itself, your hopes will be dashed quickly as the credits roll onto the screen, and you are left staring at the backside of Sandra Bullock and wondering why she went through what she did and why you sat through it all.
A three star movie - not for story, but amazing special effects.
