Uruguay Total

Una atrapante e increíble historia real de supervivencia, narrada por el director Danny Boyle con irregular imaginación y dinamismo. Se sostiene sobre todo gracias a la excelente actuación de James Franco.

Cinema em Cena

A estratégia visual tumultuada, embora torne a narrativa mais dinâmica, eventualmente acaba também diluindo sua força.

You aren't always going to be comfortable when you watch '127 Hours.' But then you're not meant to be.

Matt's Movie Reviews

True life story of a man stuck between a rock and a hard place tells of an appreciation of life while in the throes of death.

What Culture

127 Hours is ultimately about a man wrestling with his own hubristic mode of living, and paying a price for it, but living.

It's really solid filmmaking and daring.

At the Movies (Australia)

As a follow-up to Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours shows Danny Boyle at the top of his form -- it's not a story many filmmakers would want to tackle, and few would handle it as well.

Franco is amazingly good and deserves what is his first Academy Award nomination.

The Age (Australia)

That director Danny Boyle makes us feel the shock of relief as Ralston finally pulls away from his stony prison signals just how immersive a piece of first-person story-telling this is.

The story of a man stuck under a rock somehow becomes a whirring, frantic flight of cinematic bluster - enjoyable, even exhilarating at times, but frustratingly at odds with how one imagines the actual experience must have been.

Cinema Autopsy

Not only does Boyle's command of film style make 127 Hours an engaging experience, but it is also impressively used throughout the film to build and develop Ralston as a character.

This tale of male bravado is tedious and tiring and that amputation moment is stomach churning.

Boyle's film takes us back to the campfire for a story that is painful and powerful, as well as true.

The Vine

127 Hours represents a moment of Darwinism personified and Danny Boyle a filmmaker with his finger pressed firmly against the pulse of human potential.

Don't let the violence put you off like it has with audiences in America, 127 Hours is a mountain of a film that is worth climbing.

FILMINK (Australia)

A thrilling and life-affirming journey driven by James Franco's gut-wrenching performance and Danny Boyle's exuberant direction.

Moviedex

It doesn't matter how disarming Franco's single-handed performance is; there is simply not enough dramatic meat on the bones of Ralston's true story to distract us from where it is heading.

Quickflix

The arc of this film is not of a man getting trapped and finally getting free. It's of a man who has been isolated from the world for far more than 127 hours, and finally calling out for 'help'.
