This movie about a man who gets his arm stuck behind a rock could be the most boring thing ever, but it's NOT! This movie was beautifully made from the music, the scenery, to the interesing camera shots, and his various flashbacks. I was so intrigued by the movie and could have watched it for 127 Hours. :) I also loved the lesson he learned from his experience, especially when he said "thank you" to the rock. The scene where he cuts off his arm is one of the most intense scenes I've ever seen. I loved when he was cutting his muscle, I think, and they had that sharp music--I felt the pain through the music. This movie was 'R', but they didn't feel the need to put nudity or excessive language which I very much appreciated. This movie was just AMAZING!

...definitely gutpunched me. I didn't know the particulars of Aron's story. I left pretty awed,and encouraged that we can get through things with enough will. As for the acting,direction etc...very well done.I don't know that I agree with the award winning whispers going around. I think that those are probably because it is a true story. I have no criticisms of Franco's performance,but think Ryan Reynolds did just as well or better in Buried. I think anyone who sees and likes 127 should check out Buried as well. Don't know why that movie didn't get more box office. Do I think you should put the money into a theater viewing...if you really want to appreciate the dire hopelessness Franco and the cinemetography team want to convey,I say yes. If you want light and fun,just wait for it on blueray. I do not regret spending the money.

Loved the film, James Franco is brilliant. Had to look away at some parts, but it added to the intensity and realism. Highly recommend.
