Look at the poster. Whatsort of film do you think127 Hours is?

127 HOURSOne of the best films I've seen in recent years is 127 Hours, directed by the wonderfully creativeDanny Boyle and starring James Franco. The film was an immediate box-office success and wasalso highly praised by the critics and nominated for many awards.127 Hours is a drama about survival and tells the real story of Aron Ralston, a canyoneer whosepassion is to travel through canyons using climbing and caving skills. Aron falls down a hole and istrapped when a huge rock lands on his arm. The film follows the story of how he fights to stayalive and free himself.What I loved about the film was how one actor manages to hold our attention for the wholetime. It's an excellent performance. We see right inside the head of the canyoneer, and feel hisfear, hope and desperation throughout the terrible experience.This film really makes us think about the dangers of extreme sports and the courage of peoplewho do them. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has considered taking up adangerous sport!
