127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's 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, family, and the two hikers he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?
Who knew that watching James Franco stuck to a rock for 90 minutes could not only be so interesting but so amazing?
Let me begin by stating a couple of personal opinions in that I considered 127 Hours to be the best film of the year when it was released in 2010 (I still do); and after re-watching it now for about the third time I am willing to go as far as to say it is the most inspirational film I have ever seen. When one thinks of a inspirational film, most of the time its sports movies. For some damn reason people get all flabbergasted to see some great athlete overcome some sort of adversity whether it be recovering from a gruesome injury, being an underdog or winning a championship. Other inspirational films could be political films for some select…
Danny Boyle is an hyperactive boy. He may give in to the mainstream audience's sensibilities, but he had the respectable talent of transforming a harrowing survival story - and therefore an authentic horror account - into an inspiring survival drama utilizing the always amazing work of A.R. Rahman, contrasting styles and throwing a thought-provoking reflection in the process regarding how much we value every single element in our lives, from family to anecdotes and our basic human needs for surviving. With Aronofsky editing, Terry Gilliam angles for shits and kicks, and an Abel-Gance-like splitting of the screen into three parts, we have a proper true story and an interesting character analysis for the purpose of dramatization thanks to its visual…
Written and brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle, 127 Hours artfully illustrates a man's desire to live, driven by regrets and the drive to change. James Franco's performance is commanding, delicately layered without feeling desperate. He straddles an awkward line between manic desperation and an abiding enthusiasm, forming and molding Ralston as a character without giving enormous amounts of descriptive exposition. It's key to note how isolated this film is, and how everyday a guy Ralston is. It takes an artist with a distinctive visual style to maintain our interest, and Boyle excels. Ralston's life is told through flashbacks. There's no timeline, no biopic-esque storytelling. Just visuals, conveying ideas of solitude, compulsive independence, arrogance and a passive selfishness. He's not a…
I like Danny Boyle. I feel his films always bring something to the table most directors just don't seem to bring. Here, he is in amazing form as he has taken it upon him to tell a story mainly set in one location of which we already know the outcome. And still, it is tense, exciting and moving.
The screenplay is a thing of beauty, filled to the brim with creativity and respect for its source. This film is perfectly paced, which allows you as a viewer to share that small crevice James Franco is stuck in, you're right there beside him and that makes for a very engaging experience. It would have been easy to have this film be…
The film chronicles the true story of Aron Ralston (James Franco), a recklessly arrogant mountain climber whose arm gets crushed under a boulder during a trip through Utah canyon country. With no one coming to save him, he must decide whether he will die or fight for survival.
The logline and description may not sound like much, but 127 Hours delivers one of the most riveting and incredibly emotional experiences I have had in a theatre in some time. I was unsure Boyle and his crew could top their Oscar-winning work in Slumdog Millionaire, but this film improves upon it in every way possible. Because of all the talk about "the scene", the majority of people will know how the…
Actually not as difficult to watch as I expected. I had a harder time with Wild, tbh. Except that one scene. Just that one little scene.
I'm usually not a fan of Danny Boyle's shaken fast paced style, but his directing really complements this film. For a movie that is just about a guy's hand stuck under a rock, it still manages to surprise you and make you think.
That bloody Scooby-Doo pop up gets me everytime
wouldn't rewatch it except to see james franco's dumb beautiful face
A simple film but yet so effective. There's not much in terms of a storyline, but yet as simple as it is it keeps u on the edge of the seat and almost feel every minute of the actors ordeal. I think the main purpose of this story is to show you to not take life for granted. What's so eerie about this movie is it's based on an actual true story. Definite movie you wanna watch.
Watched on 2011
"127 Hours" adalah kisah nyata yang diangkat dari perjuangan seorang pendaki gunung bernama Aron Ralston yang sempat terjebak dalam sebuah celah di Grand Canyon selama 127 jam atau sekitar 5 hari. Saat menjelajahi Grand Canyon sendirian, Aron nggak sengaja terjebak dengan posisi yang sungguh nggak nyaman. Tangan kanannya terjepit batu besar yang membuatnya nggak bisa melepaskan diri.
Salah satu pelajaran penting yang bisa kita ambil dari film ini adalah, jangan beli pisau adventure made in China. kualitasnya sangat buruk! :)))
- The scooby doo flashes.
- Giving up to fap in such a situation.
I don't know what I love more: Danny Boyle at his most hysterically vivid or James Franco in incomprehensible pain
