Critic Reviews for 127 Hours
It's an incredible performance by Franco, walking the line between what once was enthusiasm but now is manic desperation.
At the end, we stagger like Ralston from the dark into the light. We might have both our arms left, but our nerves are just as terrorised.
Boyle is such a gifted filmmaker that, in his hands, 127 Hours is genuinely -- and unsentimentally -- inspirational.
Boyle has always been an exceptionally stylish director, and, despite its limited setting, 127 Hours is a marvel of visual eye candy.
Audience Reviews for 127 Hours
Danny Boyle e James Franco, mostram seus talentos neste indicado ao Oscar.
Boyle seems to only care about his own direction, as he invests in a heavy-handed, tumultuous approach, using everything from pointless subjective cameras to split screens, but leaves the story without a clear purpose. What saves the film, though, is Franco's strong performance.
That Sigur Ros music cue towards the end never fails to make me tear up.
