5.0 out of 5 stars Very lucky to be alive., 7 Jan. 2011
This review is from: 127 Hours [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is the true story of Aron Rolston, who in 2003 went on a walking holiday without telling anyone where he was going, and ended up falling down a hole, trapped by a rock and facing certain death. Doesn't sound great, does it? And personally i thought Aron Rolston was an idiot who ignored the guide books and insisted he knew best and ended up in a disaster of his own making. Despite all this, this follow up to Danny Boyle's excellent multi award winning Slumdog Millionare is one of Danny Boyle's best films, up there with Slumdog Millionare, Trainspotting and 28 Days Later. James Franco from the Spiderman movies gives a superb performance as Aron Rolston and despite the accident being his own fault in my opinion, you do feel for the guy and want him to get out of it. The much talked about amputation scene is nowhere near as bad as it's been made out to be in the press and you're only likely to be freaked out if you can't stomach an episode of Casualty or E.R. A very well made, gripping film.

In reference to you saying "despite the accident being his own fault in my opinion, you do feel for the guy and want him to get out of it." It is his own fault, and the film makes a lot of references to this fact (so its not really your opinion). Also, of course you are going to feel for him. You almost make it sound like you were expecting to want him to pay for what happened because it was his own fault. Anyway, I'm not having a go, and that might not have been how you meant it anyway, but I just wanted to point those couple of things out.
