|FROM ACADEMY AWARD®-WINNING DIRECTOR DANNY BOYLE* (Slumdog Millionaire ) comes the powerfully uplifting true story of one man’s struggle to survive against mountainous odds. Aron Ralston (James Franco) has a passion for all things outdoors. But when a falling boulder traps him in a remote Utah canyon, a thrill-seeker’s adventure becomes the challenge of a lifetime. Over the next five days, Ralston embarks on a remarkable personal journey in which he relies on the memories of family and friends — as well as his own courage and ingenuity — to turn adversity into triumph!|
Editor's NoteJames 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.

|I remember when this movie opened all the reports of people fainting and those who were not able to handle the arm cutting scene. I also remember laughing about it; I mean were they for real? I wanted to make fun of them, but I also wondered if it were perhaps a sly marketing tool to amp up interest in a different way than your usual trailers and commercials. I have since come to believe that the reports were legit, and I began to look at it from another angle. You see, I am a veteran horror movie fan and enjoy my share of blood and guts, both realistic and cartoonish, so this movie did not have that affect on me. However, the audiences this drew in were a bit more diverse than a horror crowd, and many would not be used to seeing this sort of realistic blood on the screen, although it is unavoidable with this story. So, there's that....read the full review|
