About: 127 Hours is the new film from Danny Boyle, the Academy Award winning director of last year’s Best Picture, Slumdog Millionaire. 127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet? A visceral thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.
Review: "127 Hours" was a movie I wasn't sure I wanted to watch, but after the suggestion of a friend I decided to give it a try. To begin with it is a movie that most of the time has only one actor but without been boring at all. There are a lot of flashbacks and some scenes have other actors too, but generally James Franco is everything in this movie. His performance was exquisite, he did such a great job. Some of you might already know that it is based in a true story, which make's it even more exiting to watch. The production and the direction were very good too. They had a great story and the result was a great movie. In the beginning I was a little worried that I might get bored but that did not happen at all. Finally I totally recommend this one, it is a must watch, for me 8/10.
