James Franco has quite the reputation, I mean first he did horrible job hosting the Oscar, second his acting got went unrecognized Rise of the Planet of the Apes as praised went to Andy Serkis, and third being he does a good job acting in 127 Hours, for the most part.
A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive. That’s basically the whole movie, expect for the last ten minutes. I wasn’t totally swept away by the plot as it really not that interesting at all, it felt like they dragged on martial for the movie.
Despite the story being a slight disappointment to me, everything else is good. James Franco does a great job carrying the weight of a whole movie on his shoulder and is executed greatly. I’m guessing it’s just me, but I didn’t have the same experience as everyone while watching this. I just thought it was a good movie, but apparently other call it horrifying and intense.
127 Hours is a good movie about survival with a slight disappointment from the story and a great performance from James Franco. This movie won’t move everyone the same way, but it still worth checking this one out.
