127 Hours

During 2010 we saw several good movies based on the real life stories of various people and 127 Hours is another addition to best movies list of that genre. Danny Boyle, genius directed who filmed Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire decided to reproduce the story of Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) the adventurer who got in real troubles in Utah. He went on a mountain bike ride in badlands and got stuck in a pretty dangerous position with his arm wedging between a stone and a rock without any chance to escape. He is very limited in supplies and has only one small knife that he tries to use to free himself. He records his struggle on video cam during whole period of 127 hours. Skilled director shows the transformation of carefree adventurer into the real survivor and the ending is particularly stunning.
