Brilliant, but breaking the rules not so.

James Franco is brilliant in showing the different stages of acceptance and courage as he comes to the realisation of what he has to do. Does well to not make us end up hating the cocky character as well. Danny Boyle keeps you within the situation, only letting you out in flashbacks for some relief, although sometimes they just add to the intensity. Only issue I have with it is the fame Aron has gained from breaking the basic rules of outdoor exploration.
