This movie is based on the true story of Aaron Rolston, who went on a walking holiday and did not tell anyone where he was going. He ended up falling and getting seriously trapped by a rock and went through a series of emotions with death staring him in the face.
Whilst trapped you go through the emotions with him and wonder what he will try next to release frre from the rock and at the same time willing him to try something else...because obviously you think you have a better idea sitting on your sofa watching the TV.
There are a few flashback scenes through which you get to know who Aaron is and the kind of person he is, and why he is where he is at being tested to the maximum. This all leads to the end of the movie and how Aaron actually sets himself free. I found this uncomfortable to watch, including closing my eyes at times!
Although you are going through a journey with Aaron, I found parts of it a little slow, and I couldn't wait to get to the end to find out how he actually escaped.
I don't think it is one I would watch again but would certainly recommend as a DVD watch. Has to be seen simply because it is a true story but not because it is a brilliant piece of movie. Not really the kind of movie where you would have your friends round and pizza on the go though...
Summary: Good movie, journey although slow, watch as it is true story
