A good film featuring a truly great performance.
September 11, 2020
An inspired and inspiring cinema experience.

127 Hours is a classic, albeit internalized, adventure story juiced up with Boyle's attention-deficit-disorder camera work, which renders the world a pop-music fueled, caffeinated frenzy, as hallucinatory as any drug trip.
November 16, 2019
127 Hours is not only an inspirational story about one man's journey, but a testament to the very essence of survival and humanity, prompting each of us to look within ourselves.
October 29, 2019
This is a one man show, and Franco sinks his teeth into the role.
May 8, 2019
Franco is aided by tight direction from Boyle, who pulls out all the stops to put the audience into the situation and keep it interesting.
March 16, 2019
Danny Boyle's hyper-kinetic cinematic vision for 127 Hours feels more than a little inappropriate and shallow.
February 19, 2019
127 Hours is a consistently gripping drama that puts us face to face with the question of what we would or even could do to save ourselves in a similar situation.
December 31, 2018
James Franco is compelling through an emotionally charged performance and shows what an actor can do with an intense screenplay and so little physical room to operate.
November 6, 2018
An exceptionally made film, and further proof (if proof be needed) that Boyle is emerging as one of the most distinct directorial voices in contemporary cinema.
August 30, 2018
This may be a great film, and an ingenious film, but only if you've the stomach for it.
May 15, 2018
Any film that relies on one actor to carry the movie demands a lot of its leading man but James Franco applies a youthful exuberance that makes him so watchable it's all viewers could do not to blink.
April 30, 2018
Franco gives a workmanlike performance that seems normal, regular, not like manic dabbling in a profession not his own.
March 14, 2018
This is not a bloody movie or just a disproportionate drama, this is a movie about a single life, a human being, a man who thought himself invincible... [Full review in Spanish]
February 27, 2018
Boyle, in his always rather excessive way, throws an arsenal of visual resources so as not to turn the story of Aron into that of a guy locked in a square meter. [Full review in Spanish]
October 24, 2017
Where the movie succeeds... it succeeds so well it's amazing.
September 11, 2017
Franco... delivers a solid performance as the strapping climber who shows his vulnerability when he reflects back on his life--the mistakes he's made and the moments he may miss.
June 29, 2017
Though I knew how the film was going to end, it made no difference. It had me from the beginning. It never lags. James Franco as Ralston is brilliant.
October 7, 2015
Mr. Boyle does succeed smashingly in holding your attention, peppering in healthy doses of flashbacks and fantasies between Mr. Ralston's monologues and his attempts to free himself.
May 3, 2015
So busy and self-consciously virtuosic that the movie undercuts it's own premise.
