Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for 127 Hours
Any film that relies on one actor to carry the movie demands a lot of its leading man but James Franco applies a youthful exuberance that makes him so watchable it's all viewers could do not to blink.
It's an incredible performance by Franco, walking the line between what once was enthusiasm but now is manic desperation.
That director Danny Boyle makes us feel the shock of relief as Ralston finally pulls away from his stony prison signals just how immersive a piece of first-person story-telling this is.
Boyle's film takes us back to the campfire for a story that is painful and powerful, as well as true.
Audience Reviews for 127 Hours
Boyle seems to care only about his own direction, as he invests in a heavy-handed, tumultuous approach, using everything from pointless subjective cameras to split screens, but leaves the story without a clear purpose. What saves the film, though, is Franco's strong performance.
Danny Boyle e James Franco, mostram seus talentos neste indicado ao Oscar.
That Sigur Ros music cue towards the end never fails to make me tear up.
