Product Description

Amazon.ca

Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) is traipsing alone through Utah's Canyonlands National Park, minding his own sweet-natured, loosey-goosey business, when an errant step drops him into a crevasse. That in itself wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't managed to get his right hand stuck between a heavy boulder and the side of the cavern--a cavern that will be his grave, if he doesn't figure out how to get himself out. Danny Boyle's film of this real-life 2003 incident builds up to what we all know is going to happen: Ralston must sever his arm between his elbow and wrist, after a few long, lonely days of avoiding the idea. (Superb casual line delivery by Franco: "So I found this great tourniquet….") Because this is a film by the director of Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting, we can expect a barrage of visual high jinks, despite the fact that this story would seem to be a simple tale of a man stuck in the desert. Boyle deploys flashbacks and fantasies to fill up the screen, plus he gets some mileage out of Ralston's video camera--and, of course, this director can't resist juicing the soundtrack with pop tunes, from Sigur Rós to Edith Piaf to Slumdog composer A.R. Rahman. Maybe Boyle is simply hyperactive, or maybe he's really onto something about what would happen inside the mind of a man left in extremis for an extended period (who wouldn't have a few Boyle-esque hallucinations, under the circumstances?). The cumulative effect is overbearing, but Franco's performance is spirited and endearing--he makes Ralston sufficiently "of life" that you definitely don't want to see this goofball soul be lost. --Robert Horton

Apparently, I'm one of the few people who had never heard Aron Ralston's story; obviously, he survived - but I had no idea how things would work out. Thus, for me there was no "inevitable" component to the ending - and I certainly won't be describing that ending here because not knowing makes this powerful film even more intense. 127 Hours is not an easy film to watch, even for those of us who can't get enough of these "extreme survival" movies. It's one thing to watch an awful situation that "could" happen - it's another thing entirely to watch it knowing that it really happened to someone. It is also not without its gory moments, so anyone who faints at the sight of blood should know this going in. Close your eyes if you have to, but see this movie.

The story's pretty simple, really. Adrenaline-seeking extreme outdoorsman and free spirit Aron Ralston (James Franco) heads out to Utah's Canyonlands National Park to do some biking, hiking, and rappelling. Suddenly, he falls into a crevasse, with his right hand trapped between a gigantic rock and the canyon wall. He knows immediately that he is in extreme trouble because he didn't tell anyone where he was going and the chances of someone else coming along to such a desolate place are few and far between. Even if someone did come, he is trapped near the bottom of what is literally a deep but relatively narrow crack in the earth. He had met a couple of young female hikers earlier that day, showing them the adventure of a lifetime by taking them places and doing things that were most certainly not in the guidebook, but there is little chance his absence at a party they were throwing the next night could ever translate into a rescue effort.

The meaning of the title should be obvious. 127 hours translates to 5 days and 7 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterfully directed and acted Oct. 7 2013
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
On one level there’s no reason this film should work as well as it does. The story
is public knowledge so there’s no real suspense in the traditional sense. But
between the brilliant direction by Danny Boyle, and the smashing performance
by James Franco this transcends to be not a film of suspense, but a character
study of a very real, flawed but likeable person in a nightmare situation any
of us can imagine. We descend into his lonely hell with him and emerged amazed
by the resilience of this young man in particular, but also by life in general. Less
thrilling, but – more important – far more moving than I expected, Boyle works
wonders in making what is essential a one character single location film never feel
static or dull, and the gruesome climax almost unbearable to watch without ever
feeling exploitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cautionary tale March 29 2011
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
28-year old Aron Ralston was an experienced hiker and climber who set out for a day of fun in Canyonlands that changed his life forever. He fell down a crevice, a boulder pinned his arm, and he was unable to free himself. Over the next five days, Aron recorded his thoughts on his video camera and dreamed about his family and friends, then, with no food or water left, decided to end his ordeal.

This movie is filmed almost like a documentary, a virtual one-man show for James Franco. He's very good and believable as the hot shot outdoorsman who kept his head in a hopeless situation. The whole film leads up to the famous scene where Aron got free the only way he could, by severing his arm. That scene is very graphic and hard to watch, but it is short.

The movie is a testament to one man's courage and resourcefulness. It wasn't the best movie I saw last year, but it was very well made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense Emotional drama Nov. 13 2011
Format:DVD
This movie touches a place deep inside, perhaps more so than any other i've witnessed. If you enjoy INTENSE drama, this true story is for you. Perhaps a disclaimer should be applied, however, in that reliving such a near-death experience could be unsettling/disturbing.

4.0 out of 5 stars James Franco is brilliant March 28 2011
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
127 Hours is the story of Aron Ralston,a mountain climber who decides one day to go on a trek by himself and not tell anyone where he is going.he ends up pinned under a rock in the bottom of a narrow canyon.the rest of the movie is him trying to somehow free himself before he dies as his food and water supplies dry up.there is a particularly gruesome scene in the film that may bother those with a weak stomach.you'll know when it's about to happen,so you'll have chance to look away.James Franco plays Ralston,and is brilliant.the movie succeeds or fails on his performance.the direction by Danny Boyle is good here too.he makes up for the substandard(in my opinion)Slumdog Millionaire.for me,127 Hours is a a 4/5
