4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing edge-of-the-seat thriller!, 13 May 2011
By 
This review is from: 127 Hours [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
127 hours is the incredible true story of one man's nightmare ordeal. Although we all know the outcome the film is still a fascinating watch. After falling through a cave & having his arm trapped by a boulder we watch as Aaron first tries to move the boulder & scream for help as well as chiselling through the rock to no avail, but as the hours pass it becomes clear that he will die here. Fast running out of water, Aaron begins to think of an unthinkable task he must do if he wishes to survive...

The film delves into Aaron's state of mind as he begins to lose it. There are random flashbacks, dreams & fantasies all building up to the uncomfortable finale, there are moments where Aaron realises that he never told his Colleague where he was going that weekend or his mother when she phoned him. He realises that by the time he is reported as a missing person it will be too late. We also see Aaron leave video messages on his camcorder describing his feelings, views & goodbyes so that whomever finds it can return it to his family eventually.

I would say please don't be put off by what you may have heard about the film. Whilst it does get a little gory it is not for the sake of entertainment like the 'Saw series' but to show us what this man had to go through in order to survive. The moment he eventually gets free is a sigh of relief for the viewer too!! And it all ends well for Aaron if you see the text in the end scene.

The film boasts a career performance from James Franco who has come a long way from Spiderman. Danny Boyle should be proud too of this movie.

Definately worth watching.
