A technically impressive piece of work with an undeniably powerful finale.

It's shocking to believe this is a true story, but who better to portray this shocking story than Danny Boyle and James Franco. This is by far the most defining role James Franco has ever played. I cannot get enough of this movie, it's more like watching a thrilling documentary instead of a film. The entire thing is beautiful, moving, and, for some, too realistic to bear. One of the best films I've seen. Bravo.

Movies like this can be really good or really bad. This was obviously really good. It takes a tremendous amount of talent on behalf of the actor and director to make an entertaining film about one man literally stuck in one place. James Franco is consistent in all of his films so it's no surprise that he nailed this piece. The flashbacks that appeared throughout definitely kept things interesting, taking us away with the character and his thoughts as he believed to be in his last moments of life. This is definitely something I would recommend.

"127 Hours" by Yojimbo

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. In fact the only real drawback to the whole thing is the fact that the audience knows in advance exactly what is going to happen and therefore there are no surprises whatsoever. That and the fact that although it is embellished by Boyle's usual blend of visual gimmickry and pop music, we are still basically spending an hour and a half watching a guy in...

127 Hours review

An adventurer and nature lover Aron Ralston (James Franco) who was trapped last 2003 at Utah's Canyonlands National Park. An accident occurs passing thru Blue John Canyon where a boulder pins his arm as he gets trapped below. He reflects upon his life as the days pass by. Some valuable quotes from the true to life movie: Aron - "I wish I had learned some lessons more astutely, more rapidly, than I did." "Everything is... just comes together." "Don't lose it. Aron, do not lose it." "But like I always say... your supreme selfishness is our gain." Themes of regret, pride, time's spent, self-reflection, destiny, respecting the people you love and survival were well presented. It is difficult not to get moved by such a work of art coupled with an astounding performance by James Franco ...

Sploich Reviews 127 Hours (2010)

We do a lot of things in life that we later regret. For the most part it's ordering the soup instead of the salad or buying shoes in brown instead of black. Sometimes your choices can change your life, like breaking up with somebody, or for that matter not breaking up with somebody when you had the perfect chance. If there is anybody in the world who knows about regret, it has to be Aron Ralston, the main focus of the biographical film 127 Hours.

Ralston has always been an adventurer, but in 2003 he misjudged himself and his footing and ended up pinned to a Utahn canyon wall via a giant boulder crushing his arm. For five days he was stuck there, living off of very little food and water, suffering the harshness of his new isolated home. He eventually found his way out, leaving behind a ...
