From the opening moments of people falling off rooftops to Wahlberg's conversation with a plant, there is not a moment to be believed. It seems to be an environmentalist statement, yet none of the characters was worth caring about. Ranks as one of the oddest "serious dramas" ever, and sadly, one of the worst.
Aaron Ralston (Franco) is an adventurous type who becomes trapped by a boulder in Utah, and realizes his own vulnerabilities. Superbly told using unique visual techniques that make a claustrophobic setting interesting. James Franco holds viewers captivated with a strong performance.
