Movie Reviews

A real-life thriller
Politix Fan | 03/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mountain climber Aron Ralston found himself trapped in a narrow canyon, arm pinned down by an 800 pound boulder. He was faced with a choice - die there in the ravine, or cut off his trapped arm and hope he could survive his escape. This feature-length NBC News documentary, reported by Tom Brokaw, lays out Ralston's story -- as he faces his horrible decision; as loved ones back home try to figure out what has happened to him; and as rescuers try to reach him in time. Stunningly shot on location, using everything from tiny cameras in small spaces to helicopters delivering panoramic scenes of natural beauty, "Survivor: Aron Ralston" is a real life thriller that bests anything Hollywood could do."
Gripping. Inspiring. Unforgettable.
Carol Woodson | Seattle WA | 12/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gripping, inspiring, shocking, amazing. We three adults sat stunned, riveted by this tv broadcast. Equipped with a VIDEO CAMERA, Aron filmed his extreme situation; he suffered, fought back, resigned himself, considered the worst, thought about his family, the good life he was leaving, what would have/could have been, apologized, said his good-byes and thank yous, found unbelievable strength and courage, and, barely, survived. And so, we are able to follow his incredible ordeal in real-time. This young man is out of mythology; in former times, he would have been one of those storybook heroes. What qualities make up such a man? Sheer physical strength? Will power? Intelligence? Confidence? Determination? Solid upbringing? Strong, loving family background? An unforgettable video, well worth watching."
