Movie Review – 127 Hours

A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.

Synopsis taken from IMDB.

I wasn’t sure that I was going to enjoy this movie. It is based on a true story, and those are often the best movies, however how interesting can being stuck in a hole for 127 hour be?

Very – This movie was well done. It moved very quickly and was enjoyable to watch. The way it was filmed and edited keep you interested as Aron teetered on the edge of reality and insanity. Even the sound in the movie was amazing, the depth of the sound really sucked you into the situation.

James Franco was a perfect choice and performed beautifully in the film. He pulled you into the emotions that were being felt and what he was going through.

This movie is definitely going to walk away with at least one Oscar this year. I recommend taking time to see this movie. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
