Sorry if this is a repeat. Couldn't find another thread...
What do you guys think of this movie? I remember reading about it when it happened.
A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.
Not sure if this story makes me want to see it more...or less
Danny Boyle's new movie 127 Hours is leaving fans feeling faint.
Three viewers at a special Toronto International Film Festival screening collapsed after watching the gory film.
The Slumdog Millionaire director debuted his latest film - starring James Franco as mountaineer Aron Ralston, who was forced to saw off his lower right arm after a boulder fell onto him while he was climbing in Utah in 2003 - at the festival on Saturday.
And the explicit scene which shows Franco hacking at his trapped arm before snipping the tendons with pliers was so shocking, several film fans fainted at another preview the following evening.
A critic for movie website TheWrap.com says, "Make no mistake, the scenes of Aron Ralston taking off his own arm to free himself after a fall are among the most realistic of graphic gore ever put on film, and not for the faint of heart. You could clearly see people in shock, struggling to stay in their seats, working to get past the intensity of what was going on in front of them. The sequence is never gratuitous, just very realistic... These were clearly audience members who could not take it."
