Not only visually stunning, but surprising in story telling format. Really felt the gravity of the situation despite its weightlessness--and simplicity, to some extent. I think it could have done well to add a bit more about the crew...maybe see their lives on Earth a bit, a little bit about the mission itself. Maybe not start in space...or flash to it at some point. We never see Bullock's daughter, for example.
Overall, powerful film carefully engineered for box office explosiveness.
