Danny Boyle is English and Danny Boyle is excellent. Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting and 28 Days Later are three very well executed and highly entertaining examples of just how excellent. Now the 54-year-old’s directed 127 Hours starring James Franco about a rock climber called Aron Ralston whose holiday goes a little bit wrong when he ends up having to chop his own arm off with a penknife after being stuck under a boulder for five days. NIGHTMARE.

About 127 Hours, FHM Head Writer Olly Richards says: “I give it two thumbs up, which is more than Aron Ralston can do.”

He is such a card.
