127 Hours

You probably heard the news story about the hiker in the Utah wilderness who fell and had his arm trapped by a boulder. The reason you remember the story is because of what he had to do to free himself. 127 Hours takes us through outdoorsman Aaron Ralston’s ordeal and shows us exactly what happened, his attempts to survive and escape, and what gave him the strength to do what had to be done to live.

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay will spare you a few instances of harsh language that occur when Aaron gets frustrated with his predicament. ClearPlay’s other job is to soften the scenes where Aaron frees himself from the boulder with nothing but a cheap Leatherman knockoff as his tool. With ClearPlay, this would be a good movie for teens and up.

Will 127 Hours Be Worth Two Hours?…

127 Hours was fascinating to watch even though I was well aware of how it would end. Actor James Franco, who plays Ralston, really brings the likeable character to life and was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance. Anyone who loves the outdoors will appreciate the danger Ralston finds himself in as well as the ingenuity and ultimately raw will he demonstrates as he works his way out of his predicament. Recommended.
