  • Conclusion: 127 Hours will make you wince in places and bring you to the verge of tears in others. It is an exhausting experience by which it is impossible not to be moved. You might have to press pause or look away, but nonetheless I highly recommend seeing this. Danny Boyle and James Franco have made a great film, celebrating the human spirit in the bleakest of situations with as much flair and intensity as cinema allows.

127 Hours

Brutal as Hell
5 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Aaron Ralston lives the kind of life a great many of us only imagine living. A genuine lover of the great outdoors, he’s out in the wilderness at every opportunity, climbing and hiking and scrambling and mountain biking, embracing it all with a devil-may-care attitude. But hand-in-hand with that is an isolated existence, a self-imposed distance from his family, friends, and the girl that got away.

'127 Hours' is riveting, gruesome and fascinating

  • Excerpt: Given the extremity of the situation, there were really only two ways to make a movie from the real-life ordeal of Aron Ralston, the avid mountain climber who in 2003 spent five days trapped in a crevasse with his right arm pinned beneath a gigantic boulder. One option would have been to lock the camera down, so that the audience becomes as agonizingly trapped as the hero; only trouble is, that hardcore version of 127 Hours would likely have grossed $127.

  • Excerpt: Based on Aron Ralston ‘s 2004 memoir, this story — which is not for the squeamish — follows a guy ( James Franco ) who heads to the Utah wilderness, then gets trapped when a boulder falls on his arm. Over six days, he creates a video diary, drinks his own urine, laughs at his recklessness and finally hacks off his limb!

  • Excerpt: GO 127 HOURS Watch what James Franco — actor/sleepy grad student/tepid writer/viral video comedian/conceptual artist/aficionado of gender fuckery — can accomplish when he actually focuses for a couple of weeks. In Danny Boyle's latest, Franco plays Aron Ralston, who in 2003 cut off his arm after being stuck for five days under a rock in a Utah canyon. The boulder drops about 20 minutes into 127 Hours.

  • Conclusion: A surprisingly fun, effervescent against-the-odds drama that offers an upbeat moral without the usual punishing survival-story clichés. Not for the faint-hearted, mind.

FILMDUDE
10 February 2011
  • Excerpt: It is quite obvious the film-makers wanted the audience to feel like they were right there with the protagonist throughout this harrowingly absorbing ordeal. At times it almost feels like a 'docu-drama'. There's an abundance of uncomfortable close ups as the storyline is confined to that wretched canyon, while 'that scene' is unflinchingly realistic (you won't ever forget it!).
