O que se diz lá fora sobre 127 HOURS, de Danny Boyle:
«To say that this movie gets under your skin is only barely a figure of speech. It pins you down, shakes you up and leaves you glad to be alive.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«While Franco can sometimes be a wild card, getting increasingly self-conscious with recent roles, his take on Ralston feels both credible and compelling; few actors could have made us care so much, or disappeared so completely into the role.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«All of the key creative personnel contribute to the movie's nail-biting tension and unexpectedly moving finale. Jon Harris's editing is matchless, and Rahman's score effectively heightens the emotion. Ultimately, however, it is the talents of Boyle and Franco that sock this movie home.»
Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter.
«A true-life adventure that turns into a one-man disaster movie — and the darker it gets, the more enthralling it becomes.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«Franco is up to every bit of Boyle's challenge, capturing Aron's transition from clownish outdoorsman and party boy to an introspective chronicler of his own impending demise and a visionary lunatic.»
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com.
