About the Movie

From Danny Boyle, the Academy Award®-winning director of 2008's Best Picture, Slumdog Millionaire, comes 127 HOURS. 127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, as well as the last two people he ever had the chance to meet. 127 HOURS is a visceral, thrilling story that takes an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life. 127 HOURS is the winner of six Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor James Franco and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's an incredible performance by Franco, walking the line between what once was enthusiasm but now is manic desperation. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Aug 15, 2011

Fresh: Danny Boyle makes you experience the ordeal in vivid, intimate details. You feel everything from the visceral agony to the utter triumph. It's brilliant movie-making – Marc Fennell, Triple J, Mar 1, 2011

Fresh: It's really solid filmmaking and daring. – Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia), Feb 10, 2011

Fresh: 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. – David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia), Feb 10, 2011

Oh my god i love this movie!

This movie is incredible. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

You'll love it so much, you'll clap your hands when its over

i don't think i've ever watched a film so emotionally strong that even tho i watched it a week ago, it still impacted me so hard that im still thinking about it. I hope James franco wins the best actor oscar because he really deserves it


Inspirational. Breathtaking. Thought provoking. 93 minutes of pure intensity, 127 hours takes an amazing true story and turns it into a brilliant masterpiece of a film. James Franco does an amazing job of truly taking the audience on an emotional roller coaster, bringing them through elation and pain; depression and euphoria. Director Danny Boyle doesn't lose you for a second, a huge feat considering most of the film is in a small crevasse in Utah, the camera only focused on one actor. 127 hours is not a movie you enjoy watching and then forget about. This story is one that will leave you saying "wow" and will be the focus of your thoughts for days and weeks to come.
