The story is about a mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder in a remote area near Moab, Utah, he must resort to extreme measures in order to survive. Danny Boyle once again proves that he is a fantastic director in this movie. The way he shots and show the trouble that are main character goes through, it's truly great.

Summary: James Franco stars in director Danny Boyle's inspiring survival drama based on the incredible true story of Aron Ralston, who became trapped alone in a Utah canyon for days after slipping on a loose rock, and resorted to extraordinary measures in order to make it out of his dire predicament alive.
Summary: Best solo-work by James Franco and his best movie (not crediting for Spider man though) so far. This is a very inspiring movie with a touching story. I am not sure tow hat angle the real story has been modified but I think overall, the director did a great job. And the background score was good too.
Excerpt: A true life story of the thrill-seeking mountain climber who became trapped in a remote ravine without hope of rescue and resorted to amputating his own arm with a pen knife to escape. Danny Boyle once again finds the kind of off beat material he has made his name upon and thanks to some glorious scenery and a fine performance by the ever reliable Franco, he creates a film that is far above the usual "triumph of the human spirit" melodrama.
Excerpt: A great performance from James Franco, plus, great video quality and sound, this equals a great movie. This movie ain't just a great visual and sound for your LCD, it's also an example of never giving up, even against the worst of the situations. A collection is never complete without this great film.

Excerpt: The idea of a movie about a guy who gets stuck in one spot for the majority of the runtime does not sound very exciting, however Boyle and co. keep it interesting with original camera techniques, near-perfect pacing and a terrific performance from James Franco, all culminating in a gut-wrencing climax that will really test your stomach. And just what your lunch can endure before it decides it time to get out.
Summary: With bizarre cinematography and a talk show like environment, what Danny Boyle announces to the audience in "127 Hours" is not James Franco as the winner (Still, he was cool). He presents to us that, between all those blood, sweat, and urine spilled, its the perseverance of man that claims victory.
