In my opinion the most overrated movie for now is Gravity from Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón. Starring Hollywood superstars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, I find this movie very boring. The story is too sentimental and it is too long.
The plot is as the following. Two astronauts are in the outer space to repair the broken Hubble telescope. This mission is disturbed by Russian satellite debris. So there they are, stranded somewhere in the orbit around the earth. This is the first mission of Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), accompanied by experienced Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). In the middle of the story Kowalsky offers himself so that Stone can go back to earth, which she does.
There are awkward exaggerated scenes like Stone hyperventilating, Stone who seems not capable of solving problems. That makes me wonder. To be an astronauts one has to undergo tight and heavy selection procedure, right? I believe astronauts are trained well how to cope with different situations. So why does Stone is depicted like she doesn’t know what to do? My next question is; Is it possible that this happens in a real mission?
Although I present this as the most overrated movie, I don’t say Gravity is bad. It is lauded with several prizes. Gravity just doesn’t work for me.
