Since it barnstormed the Toronto Film Festival earlier this fall, 'Gravity' has reached the stratosphere with critics, who hail it as a visual game changer, reports USA Today.



Much of the praise centers on the astounding 13-minute, uncut opening of the Sandra Bullock-George Clooney film.

The sequence, which sets up the entire movie with a scene of satellite debris crippling a space shuttle, marks one of the longest "tracking shots" in Hollywood history, and the first of that length in 3-D.
