Review: 127 Hours

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!

127 Hours is the remarkable true story of Aron, who was trapped in the wild for 127 Hours.  I actually saw the episode of Minute To Win It when Aron was playing and donating his earnings to charity.  What I remembered most while watching this movie is that Aron said that James Franco actually made a point of getting all the facts just right.  When an actor does his best to stick to the truth, I find that to be very telling of the actors ability.  Needless to say, James did an amazing job and I cannot believe what Aron was forced to do to survive.  He is a true hero and everyone could benefit from watching his story.
