At the very end of the credits is the following paragraph: "Cycling is prohibited in Horseshoe Canyon, and in certain other specific areas of Canyonlands National Park. The filmmakers wish to make clear that neither Aron Ralson, a dedicated wilderness advocate, nor James Franco who portrays Aron in the film, cycled or condone cycling outside of the authorized trails within National Parks. For more information about protecting the Utah Canyons, the filmmakers recommend www.suwa.org". See more »
The story of Aron Ralston is documented in this intense drama. It's the true story of Ralston who found himself stuck in a cave in Utah with his arm pinned under a bolder. I knew much of the story before I watched this film and honestly was a bit queezy as to what might be shown. I'm the sort who does not do well seeing blood and guts and watching this movie was a true test for me. If you are the type of person who gets queezy over stuff like this, I must say view with caution. If you can stomach watching this film, however, you will witness an incredible true story that you will never forget.
James Franco is really good in this film. Ralston himself has said the film is very true to what actually happened. It is quite a predicament that he is in and all the thoughts that go through his mind are ones that most would contemplate. What Ralston does to survive this ordeal is unbelievable and something that many if not most people could not force themselves to do. Rating 7 of 10 starts.
