However, the scenario is predictable and full of good feelings, and the end manages no surprises. The good point, in this movie is the aesthetic. The photography and the music are ravishing, and obviously, the actors are perfect in their roles.
A good choice for the fan of romances.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Jan 16, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I guess everything has already been said about the beauty and the credibility of the special effects. This is the best of imax and 3d technology since avatar. It is strictly impossible to be bored during the 90mn of the movie.
However, in my opinion, there is an overreaction about the scenario and the acting... George Clooney acts like George clooney, the brilliant , funny, brave and so cute astronaut. Completely uninteresting.
Moreover, I didn't find Sandra's Bullock performance so incredible. Always the same story of a young and brilliant scientific who suffered a serious trauma... I almost felt embarrassed during the dog scene.
Furthermore, it is not entirely the fault of the actors. The most disturbing thing was the dialogs, simplistic and predictable. Same opinion about the script : the Russian are guilty again, the heroic Clooney sacrifices his life for the beautiful girl, and, thanks to her courage and her love for her son, she manages to save herself... very conventional.
I'll compare this movie to Avatar: a wonderful coating but nothing inside.… Expand

Richard Gere's character first appears as an ambitious and amoral man, and the purpose of the film will be to let us discover his real motivations. As Hawthorne's quote said, the mains characters wears two faces: one for the public and one for the private. Gradually, as the story goes on, we assist the transformation of the peoples involved in the case, until the final revelation.
In fact, the spectator always have the disturbing impression of watching a story where everybody is either black or grey. Manichaeism has no rights here, and that's why the characters are so interresting.
For its view about lies, hypocrisy, violence and conspiracy in law, politics and religion, and for Edward Norton's great performance, this movie deserve to be see.… Expand
