DTF: Review- 127 Hours

Dedicated To review Danny Boyle's latest, 127 Hours - a true story of mountaineer Aron Ralston whose arm became trapped between a boulder and canyon wall.

DTF write "127 Hours is not an easy watch - gripping, ridden with tension and hard-hitting, but not easy. Fresh from Slumdog Millionaire fame and fortune, Danny Boyle forwent accepting big-budget blockbusters (he was rumoured for taking the Bond helm) and has instead given us a remarkable study of human nature in the face of extraordinary amount of pain and torment. The story of mountaineer Aron Ralston - whose hand..." [ctd.]

Aron Ralston (James Franco – Pineapple Express) is a mountain climber on a routine trek across canyons in Moab, Utah. Whilst navigating a crevice, he loses his balance and falls down against a boulder which is nestling between the walls of the canyon. The shifting boulder crushes his hand and wedges Aron against the cave wall and leaves him trapped, isolated from help and with no one knowing his location.

You almost forget that Franco is an actor at all in this film. I found it to be an amazing watching experience. The fact that you know the outcome does not affect the deeply entrenched quality of acting, human reflection, and heart felt dedication that Franco delivered in this film. Anything less than 4/5 is blasphemy. Franco deserves an award for this project.

I wanted to watch it. I know it's a great movie and I love movies based on true them all the time but I'm going to be honest here. I am not a squeamish person when I'm watching fiction bloody horror or shoot em up films but I don't know that I can take watching the part where he has to cut his arm off. I heard it was very it? Do they really show it look really real?
