5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies ever, 11 Jun. 2011
This review is from: 127 Hours [DVD] (DVD)
Well Danny Boyle is one of my favourite directors and he doesn't disappoint in this film. How, I wondered before I watched it can you make someone stuck in a ravine for 127 hours entertaining? Danny pulls it off. The story is really gripping and absorbing and typical Danny Boyle gritty and bleak at times. James Franco's acting is excellent. The arm cutting scene is gorey and not for the squeamish and I'll admit I closed my eyes but it's not as bad as you might think as by the time he gets to that point you really want him to do it to save his life and you hate that arm as much as he does. I think you also appreciate that Aron was so close to death and delirious that he probably didn't feel a lot of pain at all. What makes this film so good though is the way we get to see all the emotions the character goes through and how he deals with his situation and you can't help thinking 'what would I do'. I thought the ending was spectacular, I was in floods of tears in the cinema, something that's never happened to me before! One of the best films I've ever seen and without a doubt the best I've seen so far in 2011.
