A simple plot based on a true story that kept me on the edge of my seat!

You know, when I first heard about this movie. I didn't really know what to expect, as all I knew was it was based on a true story about a guy getting stuck in a canyon due to a boulder. I decided to give it a shot and well, I was amazed by this movie. Danny Boyle continues to give us impressive cinematography and incredible performances in his movie, thanks to James Franco, who plays as Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who gets stuck under the boulder if you didn't already know.

I'm not going to go into any big spoilers, but it was amazing to see how the movie builds up to the main plot. After getting stuck under a boulder for 5 days, you're probably thinking "How is this movie going to stay entertaining?". Well, we witness some attempts of Aron trying to get out of the boulder, as well as using the equipment he brought with him with his backpack to try and survive. He also tries to keep himself awake so that he can live long enough to not die. When all normal attempts to escape fail, as a last resort, he does something very terrifying to get out. When this scene happened, I had to turn away in parts due to how extreme it was!

With good uses of hallucinations and flashbacks to keep the story flowing, Danny Boyle has managed to make this movie as realistic as possible. Great music, great filming, and stunning performance. 127 Hours is a fantastic movie about a real-life incident that may be too disturbing to watch for some people, but I'd consider it a must see on all grounds. Definitely worthy of getting nominated for Best Picture at least surely?

Not Boyle's best movie but sure one of Franc's best performances.

When James Franco is not busy doing spectacular comedies with his buddy Seth Rogen he chooses to deal with interesting projects. And this movie is one of them. 127 hours is a story of survival and the desire to live. But it's also a movie based on real events and as we know this is a lot of times really risky to adapt to the big screen. Fortunately the director of the movie is long time favorite Danny Boyle. Trainspotting's talented is aware of the risks and he makes all the right moves making the film enjoyable. He makes the movie short and straight to the point with the right amount of thrills and a little bit of light hearted comedy in the start. But the most important aspect of the movie it's the one man performance from the main star. James Franco for me is a mediocre actor. But he is a smart guy. He chooses his steps really carefully and most of the times the results are spot on. This happens also in "127 hours". He manages to lift the whole movie in his shoulders and captivates you with his entire presence for 90 minutes. I'm not really font of biopic movies myself but I have to say this film made me have a really good time. It has its thrills and is a fine tribute to human resolve. It's not of course Danny Boyle's best movie but is a nice movie overall and it will make you stay in your seat for it's entire time.

Breaking Boundaries of Nature

Movie Review: "127 Hours" (2010)

Director Danny Boyle had been creating such an fascination with the real-life event book "Beetween a Rock and a Hard Place" by Aron Ralston that he was able to reunite the majority of key figures from the all-around accepted 2008 fast-track success production of "Slumdog Millionaire", including cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle and score composer A.R. Rahman, who eventually bring this stand-alone picture of an young adult taking his turn on the desert-wild Utah, USA with mountain-bike and backpack, meeting stranger females, having a time of their lives in a water-filled cave-pool, breaking-up within hours before the character of Aron, fulminating portrayal by extreme-tastes-indulging actor James Franco, who is able to break-out from his doom-to-cursed Mega-Blockbuster beginnings of being-pinned to a rich-kid-character of Harry Osborne in "Spider-Man" (2002) directed by Sam Raimi.

Actresses Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn perfom in the parts of strange-loving desert-tracking female friends "Megan & Kristi" who are likeable-sketched out feminine girly characters in an adapted screenplay by director and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, who are able to condense "The Aron Ralston Story" into a gripping 85-minutes-editorial by editor Jon Harris, who then again saves this fairly independent feature distributed by Fox Searchlight to high-end hyping critical approvals at North American Festivals in September 2010, when Danny Boyle can deliver a knock-out, yet with further timidly-received directorial vision, comparing to fellow director Tom Hooper's take of Academy-Award winning succession with "Les Misérables" (2012), when relying completely on his leading actor's performance from video-log to extreme-tight-360-close-ups of bleached-out digital aesthetics in nevertheless editorial-wise exciting arrange angles of cinematography, when the all-talked-about arm-amputation-scene of two and a half minutes can only be enjoyed once to full-blown thriller excitements, before tears fill the eyes of spectre that an historical moment of motion picture extravaganza is gone, never to return in second attempts of revisit.
