Watch James Franco Cut Off His Arm in This Bloody Good Outtake


In case you've forgotten, James Franco will not only be cohosting the Oscars this Sunday in an epic way, but he may also just walk away with a little golden boy of his own. OK, maybe not.

Still, that's not to say he isn't deserving of one for his work in 127 Hours. After all, his performance in the film is certainly, um, a cut above anything he's ever done before, and in this exclusive sneak peek at a deleted scene featured on the movie's upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release (this Tuesday), we're indeed reminded of that.

Yikes! That is scary to see. But, James is a really good actor and he deserves the nomination for an Oscar.

Wow it makes me cringe my arm in pain just watching that, he did so well lol.

-MD-4595d ago

Were we watching the same video? Nothing happened that would make someone cringe.

Sunny_D4595d ago

I kind of cringed, but I think if he showed a bit more, it would have been scarier.

-MD-4595d ago

He shows A LOT more in the actual film

Sunny_D4595d ago

Yeah, I know I was talking about this video specifically. Like if he had a bigger cut and he showed for more than 5 seconds.

Soldierone4595d ago

Its the fact you dont know what he is gonna show, and how he moves so you know something is wrong. It was liike making me grasp my arm and look away.

-MD-4595d ago (Edited 4595d ago )

The actual amputation scene in the movie didn't even bother me that much. I heard it was super graphic and making people pass out but it only showed it for all of 5 seconds. The little sound that would jolt whenever he would cut a nerve or whatever is what made me grind my teeth.

If you've seen the film you'll know what sound I'm talking about. It was brilliant.

Soldierone4595d ago

Its that scene thats keeping me away from the film lol. I cant stand stuff like that, also why i cant enjoy doctor shows or anything. The only thing that bugs me more is when people cut throats, thats why i wont watch most horror movies.

Entertainment Focus - Review: 127 Hours

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. Aron takes stock of his life as he comes to terms with his predicament and the realisation that drastic measures will need to be taken if he is to survive this situation.

Ye, i liked this movie also.
James Franco was great !

Nes_Daze4498d ago

a bit too harsh, I think this film deserves more than just 3/5.

Sahil4498d ago

fantastic movie, loved every bit

artsaber4497d ago

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 stories....watch 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 graphic.....is it? Do they really show it look really real?
