Consensus: As gut-wrenching as it is inspirational, 127 Hours unites one of Danny Boyle's most beautifully exuberant directorial efforts with a terrific performance from James Franco.

It's an incredible performance by Franco, walking the line between what once was enthusiasm but now is manic desperation.

Boyle has always been an exceptionally stylish director, and, despite its limited setting, 127 Hours is a marvel of visual eye candy.

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.

Directed and co-written by Danny Boyle in a style that travels from ecstatic to nerve-wracking and back, this is a film about perseverance, strength and the importance of always letting people know where you're going.

Absolutely masterful in both its production and its performances, this drama is easily one of the year's best.

Boyle is such a gifted filmmaker that, in his hands, 127 Hours is genuinely -- and unsentimentally -- inspirational.

The nightmare becomes a tribute to Ralston's bravery -- without casting him as a hero. He just got tired of waiting to die and decided to live.

You can know how this misdaventure came out and still be moved by this mystical/moving and miraculous film.

That Sigur Ros music cue towards the end never fails to make me tear up.

An exciting start with lovely cinematography only serves to make the bulk of the movie seem painfully dull as our protagonist becomes literally stuck between a… More

So I watched Buried and was incredibly disappointed. I figured there is only so much content that can be put into a film about a guy stuck in one place. So it… More
