What do the critics think of the movie? You can watch the trailer here, too.
“127 Hours” is based on a true story. I’m a little freaked out at the drastic measures he is going to have to take to get out.
The LA Times calls the film an “agonizing, unforgettable, and ultimately uplifting tale of wilderness survival.”
From Roger Ebert: “Is the film watchable? Yes, compulsively.”
The NY Times says, “But ‘127 Hours,’ a chronicle of accident and determination, is nearly flawless.”
Though the movie is centered on James Franco’s characters, we do see co-stars cuties Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn. Maybe girlfriend Ahna O Reilly should be jealous?
Take a look at the trailer. Will you go see this film? It’s rated R, so leave the kids at home.
