This week I got the chance to go see “127 Hours,” a movie based on a real life story about a man, who has been climbing all of his life, went out on a day hike. He fell and became trapped after a boulder crushes his arm. His story was well known as he had to cut his own hand off just to escape. I remember hearing about this story back when it happened, so it was interesting to see a movie about it.
My first question when going into this movie was, how are they going to make a movie out of someone trapped alone for 127 hours without putting the crowd to sleep. True, the challenge of getting away is something of interest. Though, how much could they really put on camera that could hold enough attention for a theatrical movie?
