Went and saw this last night... For those of you not in the know, it's based on the true story of Aron Ralston...

 

 

Aron Lee Ralston (born October 27, 1975) is an American mountain climber and public speaker. He gained fame in May 2003 when, while canyoneering in Utah, he was forced to amputate his right arm with a dull knife in order to free himself after his arm became trapped by a boulder.

 

It gets into the main event pretty quickly and most of the movie is him trying to figure out how to get out along with memories of his family and friends, etc and starts doing some pretty strange funny things at times.

 

There have been stories of people feinting, throwing up and walking out of the cinema. When the boulder fell onto him, I was a bee's dick away from feinting which was weird, cause I never do lol, must have been a mind over matter thing knowing other people have. But when things got moving, I was alright, even through the scene of him cutting his arm off, with it showing cutting through nerves, etc. From reading the thread about messed up movies, you guys should have no problem though :lol:

 

It's been made pretty well. From what the real Aron Ralston has said, it's pretty spot on. They haven't hollywoodnised it at all. Loving the fact that they show EVERYTHING...which could have been a reason why not many people were seeing it last night lol. It's getting 93% on the rottentomatoes.com

i didn't find it faint worthy. Although, if the boulder fell and wedged his cock in, and he had to cut that off, then yea i might feel uneasy.

i found the movie rather boring.

 

dont get me wrong, its an amazing story, but you cant make an event so simple, last an entire movie without being drab.

 

the scene where he's cutting the tendons had me and the other half cringing to the max.
