127 Hours isn’t an easy film to explain and it’s surely not an easy watch as well but the true story of Aaron Ralston who cut his own arm that was stuck under a boulder with all its unsettling imagery is hard film to take your eyes off. Danny Boyle’s follow-up to Slumdog Millionaire is unequivocally one of the most disconcerting films you’d ever watch but don’t let that stop you from experiencing a great cinematic achievement.
127 hours Plot
Aaron Ralston (James Franco), a mountain climber, takes off to the heart of the Grand Canyon all alone and gets stuck under a boulder. Ralston spends a grueling 127 hours with the huge boulder resting on his right arm before resorting to an unimaginable measure of cutting his arm in order to survive.
