More Info:
  • Mike Scott

    127 Hours -- just like "Slumdog Millionaire" -- is a masterful slice of four-star cinema, featuring an irresistible performance by James Franco, breathtaking cinematography, and the kind of deep, searching soul that is absent from so much of what comes out of Hollywood.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Is the film watchable? Yes, compulsively.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Only a truly visionary filmmaker could take a story largely set in a cramped canyon and give it a sense of openness and hope.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Like all great movies, 127 Hours takes us on a memorable journey. Which is not easy when 90 percent of the movie takes place with a virtually immobile hero in a very cramped setting.

    New York Post Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Mr. Boyle has a knack for tackling painful, violent or unpleasant subjects with unremitting verve and unstoppable joie de vivre.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    For a story about a man who cannot move, the ordeal unfolds at a pace that keeps you breathless.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Paradoxically, this is not a tale about summoning inner strength, but about shedding pride. Sometimes, there's no choice.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A true-life adventure that turns into a one-man disaster movie - and the darker it gets, the more enthralling it becomes.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    It's gory and gut-wrenching but strangely life-affirming.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    127 Hours is based on Ralston's memoir, and it's a really good movie because director Danny Boyle is a genius.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    This is a survival manual turned into an existential prison-break movie; it cuts deep and, at its ecstatic climax, soars high.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    It's exciting, stirring, often funny, sometimes lyrical and unusually thoughtful. And, with that one egregious exception, genuinely pleasurable.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    In the end, 127 Hours is one man's incredible, unforgettable journey; it took the extraordinary alchemy of Boyle and Franco to also make it ours.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    All of the key creative personnel contribute to the movie's nail-biting tension and unexpectedly moving finale. Jon Harris's editing is matchless, and Rahman's score effectively heightens the emotion. Ultimately, however, it is the talents of Boyle and Franco that sock this movie home.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Danny Boyle's 127 Hours is the calm, cool, and tear-your-hair-out exciting mirror image of Tony Scott's bland and formulaic "Unstoppable."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Although Ralston's act of desperation is admittedly difficult to watch, viewers who might avoid the film out of squeamishness would be depriving themselves of one of the year's most exhilarating cinematic experiences.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The scene appalls but doesn't offend; it's a "Worst-Case-Scenario Survival Handbook'' nightmare that resonates on the metaphysical level.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Like the A.R. Rahman score that drives the movie, the triumphant 127 Hours pays fitting tribute to Aron by being thrillingly alive.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    It's a coming-of-age story - blunt, mythic, gut-wrenching.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Before it traps Ralston, 127 Hours gives us ample evidence of his energy, zest and boyish charm and wit.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Damon Wise

    A surprisingly fun, effervescent against-the-odds drama that offers an upbeat moral without the usual punishing survival-story clichés. Not for the faint-hearted, mind.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    But damned if Boyle, with the help of his star, doesn't make the experience almost… cheerful.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    As Boyle's film flits from the real world-the heavy reality of a man in a canyon, pinned, near death-to the world of dreams and delusions, so Franco's performance transforms, encompassing both universes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    With 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.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Franco is up to every bit of Boyle's challenge, capturing Aron's transition from clownish outdoorsman and party boy to an introspective chronicler of his own impending demise and a visionary lunatic. Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    While Franco can sometimes be a wild card, getting increasingly self-conscious with recent roles, his take on Ralston feels both credible and compelling; few actors could have made us care so much, or disappeared so completely into the role.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This is a deeply inspirational movie about the human spirit's refusal to give up, but it is also a portrait of a man too much in love with life to let go without a fight.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    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.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Aside from an exhilarating opening and a gruesome climax, the movie isn't all that rich emotionally; all the visual razzle-dazzle winds up serving a pat lesson about people needing other people.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Even by my super-wimp standards, Aron's exit is surprisingly coy, coming from a filmmaker who gets his kicks from goosing the hell out of his audiences.

    NPR Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Boyle's skill at wringing physical and emotional reactions from his audience is impressive; watching 127 Hours is, as intended, an experience of grueling intensity.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Once Franco's on his own, everything is played across this terrific actor's deceptively goofy face.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    As a testament to positive thinking, 127 Hours will probably stand as a ringing affirmation for reckless survivalists. For those of us not so affirmed, Boyle's paean to heroism – a better title for it might have been "A Farewell to Arm" – is merely the best gross-out music video ever made.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Worse still, all that introspection adds up to a disappointingly shallow accumulation of regrets and life lessons, none of them surprising. After the adrenaline rush, 127 Hours turns to vapor.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Shiver-making moments aside, in a important way 127 Hours suffers from the filmmaker's lack of nerve, a reluctance to let the audience taste Ralston's dread and the expectation of a slow, absurd death.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    127 Hours never calms down. You suspect you're only getting half the truth of what this ordeal must've been like.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    127 Hours, about an unimaginably unbearable experience, is pretty much an unbearable experience of its own. And yet, it must be said, it's exceptionally well made.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • David Denby

    The movie is best when it calms down and concentrates on the sinister peculiarities of the experience, and when it focuses on Franco's face. [8 Nov. 2010, p . 93]
