127 Hours in 127 words
It's pretty grim.
Don't watch this film if you're squeamish or eating a chicken leg.
The anxiety that this film provokes in its audiences is made worse by the fact that you spend the first two thirds of it waiting for 'that bit'.
Danny Boyle's slick direction which treads a fine line of style over substance, ultimately suits the adrenalin packed, hallucinogenic and downright unbelievable true story of a man who basically rips off his own arm with a rusty multi-tool.
James Franco is excellent in the lead, transforming the character from a bit of a douche into someone you end up really rooting for.
If you decide to watch this film at the cinema, take a drink in with you. I guarantee you'll get thirsty.
