127 Hours

Every second counts


127 Hours
Danny Boyle switches gears completely from Slumdog Millionaire to retell a true story about a young mountaineer. He's out alone in the Utah wilderness, climbing around the canyons, when a momentary mistake leaves him trapped in a remote crevice. He managed to survive for about five days, before making and executing a crucial decision that saw him regain his freedom.

Pete Hammond quote iconWith a tour-de-force performance from James Franco and an imaginative shooting style that relies on two cameras and inventive angles, what could have been static and deadly dull comes blazingly to life in this powerful and compelling story of one man's will to survive.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconIt's rather awesome what an entertaining film Danny Boyle has made with 127 Hours. Yes, entertaining.
20
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconThanks to the tightly controlled performance by James Franco, Boyle and Simon Beaufoy’s economical script and the continually inventive camera work by Anthony Dod Mantle and Enrique Chediak, 127 Hours becomes something richer than a real-life horror show.
15
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconBoyle has made a singularly intense motion picture that tells in narrative form the same tale that has been related in TV documentaries. This is a fascinating story of determination and survival that deserves to be told. It is ultimately uplifting but it's tough going to get to that point.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBoyle, the visionary behind Trainspotting, 28 Days Later and his Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, pumps every frame of 127 Hours with cinematic adrenaline that declares war on the dull gravity of docudrama.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile I wasn't as completely impressed with this film compared to some of Boyle's past offerings (and especially his last one), it's still quite good.

Tomatometer quote iconAs gut-wrenching as it is inspirational, 127 Hours unites one of Danny Boyle's most beautifully exuberant directorial efforts with a terrific performance from James Franco.
