review: 127 Hours
I almost have never been to a movie in Kuwait’s cinema and enjoyed it, either because of censorship or that I build so much hype about the film and it turns out to be not that great.
Anyway, it wasn’t the case with 127 Hours. I just went with family blindly to see it when it’s only been recommended by a single friend.
The film started well with all flashing scenes, loud music and sporty kinda film. That lasted for about 10 to 15 min, then all of a sudden Aron Ralston’s gets his hand stuck in a valley and then it turns to be a one-man-film with one-scene-footage for the rest of the film. I got bored after half an hour and many people left the theater.
I really admire Aron Ralston for his survival, his story should be in a TV show and maybe be on Discovery channel on how the human will can take you far and how you can survive the hardest stuiations, but not that a great idea to be a film.
Plot> 127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, and the two hikers he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?
