127 hours Movie Review

127 HOURS  by Danny Boyle(director of Slumdog Millionaire) is a 2010 biographical adventure film based on a true story.The hero Aron Ralston(James Franco), who is a mountain climber, during one of his climbing expeditions to Robbers Roost,Utah( a western state of the United States) is trapped in a cave by a bolder rock.While climbing down the cave a bolder rock which he cathes for support becomes loose and comes down with him and stucks his right arm.He could not take his hands off  because it is tightly stuck to the wall of the cave by that bolder.At last he had to amputate his hand with a small Chinese knife he had after 127 hours.He continues his life journey most successfully after that.

In one way if we look at at the film  it is all about Aron’s 127 hours of struggle to get rid of that bolder stone.But in another point of view the message of the film is really waste.Aron Roston was a selfish man who thought that he is a hero and he can do what ever he wants by himself.So he is staying single and has no connections with his parents or sister.He does not even has his girlfriend with him.He never tells anyone where he is going before his expedition.But when he founds himself in that most tragic situation with very little food and water he becomes aware how weak and helpless he is.His supreme selfishness goes away.And he thinks about everyone in his life.The moments he had made others sad.He feels the sadness of loneliness.But he had to pay his right hand for to start from zero.To come to a new life of caring and loving others.Anyway his gallant struggle to survive and even cut his hand off by himself is really heart touching.He never looses hope and in his terrible struggle to survive he become victorious and the absence of the right hand or this incident never made him stay away from future expeditions.But he always left a note where he was going before he went.
