The cave paintings shown in the opening credits sequence are taken from The Great Gallery, a large rock panel of such paintings, at least 1500 years old, in Horseshoe Canyon, Utah. Blue John Canyon where Aron was trapped is a tributary to Horseshoe Canyon. See more »
Shortly after Franco gets his arm trapped by the boulder, Danny Boyle shows a scene of him taking off his "big yellow watch" with his teeth. A few minutes later the "big yellow watch" magically appears back on his left arm and stays there for the remainder of the film. This mistake is huge. See more »
Hey. Aron here. Leave a message.
Hey Aron. Sonja here, again. I know that you're probably gonna be away this weekend. But listen, just think about we we're gonna play. Please. 'Cause we have to decide, and we really...

Captions appear just before the end credits: "Aron's premonition came true. He met his wife Jessica three years later. Their son, Leo, was born in February 2010. Aron continues to be a climber and canyoneer. He always leaves a note to say where he has gone." During these captions, the cinematographer shows us the real Aron and Jessica, who are sitting silently on a couch outdoors, on green grass near a stand of green trees. The couch has colors suggesting the hues of the canyon Aron was trapped in. Aron slowly smiles, and then breaks into a grin. See more »

What Would You Do?
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.
