127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, and the two hikers he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?

This is one of those movies that even though you know what is going to happen, watching the movie doesn't lessen the impact.
Even though some people might be expecting a gore fest, this is in fact quite the opposite, it is quite an Uplifting and Triumphant movie.
Based on Adventurer Aron Ralston's extraordinary True Story, the film sets itself up quickly, establishing the lead character, his outlook and impulses.
He's presented as a guy who will kinda take a chance and give things a try. I've read in a few mainstream magazines that this makes him a bit of a twit.
I don't agree, yes he should have told someone where he was going, taken a phone etc. but what happens to him was just very unlucky.
Danny Boyle's direction is top notch and straight to the point, he is only one of few directors who could manage to make this sort of movie Exciting and Exhilarating.
The Camera Angles, Soundtrack and Cinematography also contribute greatly.
The lead performance from James Franco is Excellent and will surely be awarded with a Oscar Nomination in due course.
His performance is a difficult one to undertake, but he comes across as Humerous, Positive, Panicked and ultimately Real.
I also really liked the way his family were presented in flashbacks, as a real genuine family, this makes you care about him even more.
To sum up, a Very Impressive little movie with a Positive and Inspiring message.
ALSO - worth checking out the kinda similar, but not really Ryan Reynold's film BURIED. Which is a fictional story, but with a unique concept and performance.

 Absolutely fascinating

I went into this film thinking it was going to be a lot like Rodrigo Cortes' 'Buried'. Buried was ok, however I don't class that as the sort of film I would like to see again. I would happily watch '127 Hours' over and over again!
Danny Boyle proved why he is one of the very best directors around. Not many directors would have what it takes to make this film as entertaining as Boyle did. The cinematography is beautiful throughout - which is a great achievement because as you can imagine there aren't many changes to the settings.
James Franco put in a terrific performance. Before the film I was wondering if he could make the film believable, as the film does rest on his shoulders - if he's bad, the film's bad. Franco's far from bad, he won't be able to top this performance for the rest of his career. I know that's not saying too much now as his only good performances that come to mind have been 'James Dean' and 'Milk', but I strongly believe his portrayal of Aron Ralston deserves an Oscar nomination.
You feel as if you were there with Ralston for the whole time - no filmmaker could've made the experience more realstic. The climax was a real feel-good tear jerker, making the whole experience worth every emotional second. It's a harrowing story of what you would really do to survive: philisophical and thought-provoking.
As for the scene that everyone wants to see - lets just say it makes the 'Saw' movies look as if they belonged on the CBBC channel. The make-up, effects and the emotional impact of the scene is so realistic I dare anyone to watch it without feeling at least a bit faint. You really feel sorry for Ralston - but as the cover says 'triumphant'.
2011 so far seems as if it is going to be a fantastic year for cinema, especially with 'The King's Speech' setting the bar so high early on. As good as 'The King's Speech' truly was, I believe '127 Hours' has raised the bar, ever so slightly.

danny boyles 127 hours was a bit of a let down for me.yes it was pretty good but it just didnt go anywhere and it stayed in the middle all the way through the film what i mean is it didnt get better or worse it was just watchable from start to finish.it was a one man film with flashbacks etc.i actually prefered buried with ryan reynolds which was another 1 man film but 10 times better.on the plus side danny boyles direction was excellent and the main lead gives a good performance but just wasnt exciting enough for me

 A Cautionary Tale

True stories are always the most fascinating and this is no exception. From the ending it has not put him off dangerous pursuits, but approached with a level head that only experience and age can bring. Excellent, did not irriatate like Buried!

 Inspiring, Engaging and Reflective - a masterpiece!

As with all Danny Boyles movies - this doesn't disappoint. The film tells the story of young adventurer Aaron Ralston (Franco) who heads off alone into the Rocky wilderness of Utah with only his climbing gear and personal camcorder for company but finds himself in a life-threatening situation when he falls and gets his arm wedged between a rock in a deep gulley with no signs of budging. With no means of communication except for his futile cries for help, Aaron reflects on the seemingly hopeless reality of his situation and on his life.

Clocking in at just under 90 minutes, the film gets right to the point and keeps you gripped all the way through as you watch Aaron go through a myriad of different emotions (from despair to madness) at his situation, and the different camera angles and styles (from flashblacks to Aarons own personal camera) gives the film a real intimate edge which makes you feel like you are right there with him experiencing every step of his journey as he struggles to escape and brave the elements.

With a knockout performance from James Franco (which earned him an oscar nomination for best actor) this film is a true masterpiece and an ultimate display of what as human beings we are willing to sacrifice in our fight for survival. Truely inspiring and a must see. Get it!
