A good gripping film, but not for the squeamish

I really enjoyed this film as a whole. I thought that the situation that eventuated was shown in a realistic gripping fashion, and several times in the film you wondered "Is he going to get out this time?" James Franco played the role very very well. I agree with other reviews that the start of the film was annoying. I also couldn't watch the 'hacking the arm off with a penknife' bit. It was just too bloody for me, so be prepared to close your eyes through this part if you are squeamish. Despite this, it was a really good film.
