"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."


"Mr. Boyle has a knack for tackling painful, violent or unpleasant subjects with unremitting verve and unstoppable joie de vivre."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"James Franco is outstanding in this true story that might put you off climbing for life. By Peter Bradshaw"

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Is the film watchable? Yes, compulsively."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Scarcely believable, but watchable..."

Otago Daily TimesOtago Daily Times

"A gruesome but remarkable story well told"

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"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."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A surprisingly fun, effervescent against-the-odds drama that offers an upbeat moral without the usual punishing survival-story clichés. Not for the faint-hearted, mind."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"You probably remember the story. What happened to young American climber Aron Ralston, and the way in which Ralston then happened to himself, went around the planet very quickly, and inspired plenty of "I wonder whether I could do that" moments around the kitchen tables and water coolers of the world."
