127 HoursDirector: Danny Boyle,
James Franco stars in director Danny Boyle's inspiring survival drama based on the incredible true story of Aron Ralston, who became trapped alone in a Utah canyon for days after slipping on a loose rock, and resorted to extraordinary measures in order to make it out of his dire predicament alive. An experienced hiker and climber, Ralston (Franco) is very much in his element when he parks his truck by a mountain near Moab, UT, hops on his bike, and peddles to the middle of nowhere. Later, when Ralston encounters a pair of young female hikers who have gotten lost while searching for a local landmark, he jovially shows them a sight that most casual hikers miss before bidding them farewell and continuing on his way. Drifting through the canyons alone, deep in thought, however, the explorer who presumed he was ready for anything quickly discovers just how fast things can spin out of control when a rock gives way as he shimmies down a crevice, and pins his hand to the unforgiving wall of stone. Over the course of the next 127 hours, Ralston tries everything he can think of to free himself, flashing back to small but memorable events in his life -- as well as forward to the future that he might enjoy should he manage to wiggle free -- as his body begins the slow process of shutting down. Eventually realizing that the only way out is to leave part of himself behind, the exhausted, delirious adventurer draws his cheap made-in-China multi-tool, and does what it takes to survive.

Scary situation to be in! A man goes out hiking and gets trapped her a boulder where he is stuck for 127 hours. His life flashes before his eyes and then he starts to hallucinate. Eventually he comes to the realization that the only way to get out from under the boulder is to cut off his arm. In that situation I would have died because I could not have done that. The only problem with this movie is we know how it is going to end because it is based on a true story and that's what the real guy had to do. Still, worth a watch and very well done.

let me just say that my opinion is that this is the best movie ever made. it is well acted, well filmed, just everything is well done. this movie gets so intense at the end of the movie that i guarantee you will be on the edge of your seat.
I was hesitant at first to watch this film because I had not heard about it until the same day I watched it, but I was impressed! This is the best survival film since "Alive". James Franco gave an excellent performance. Based on true events. It made me want to read the book about it. You will not be disappointed, especially if you are into films about survival.
Really did not look forwrd to 2 hours of James Franco stuck in a cave but Danny Boyle really has a way with story telling. The time flew by and the story drew me in even knowing how it ends kept me on the edge of my seat. The scenery was wonderful and the music was great as well. I definately recommend this movie it was on my top 10 list for last year.
