Wichita Eagle

127 Hours (R)
The true story of Aron Ralston (James Franco), a mountain climber who becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone in Utah. He struggles to survive and eventually resorts to desperate measures to live. Franco's performance is gut-wrenching, aided by director Danny Boyle's ("Slumdog Millionaire") clever touches of theatricality (that perhaps recall his "Trainspotting" days) to show Ralston's mental anguish. But it's simply amazing how the story pulsates with urgency even when the action almost never leaves its isolated spot. The film ultimately is inspiring despite its despair — Ralston simply got tired of waiting to die, and forced himself to go on living. Reviewed by Rod Pocowatchit of The Eagle (4th week)
Language and some disturbing violent content/bloody images. (1 hr 45 min)
Warren Theatre (east): Daily at 7:20 & 9:40.

Black Swan (R)
Darren Aronofsky ("The Wrestler," "Requiem for a Dream") directs this dark psychological thriller about a timid ballet dancer (Natalie Portman) who must discover her dark side when she is cast as the lead in a rebellious production of "Swan Lake." But the arrival of a free-spirited new dancer (Mila Kunis) in the company threatens her success. This is the closest thing to ballet horror as we're ever going to see _ it's certainly tense, suspenseful and surreal, and Aronofsky keeps us guessing at what is real and what isn't. Portman delivers a bravura performance — her fragile ballet dancer is on the brink of psychological disaster. But while it's all tantalizing, it's an ultimately strangely disjointed experience. We marvel at Aronofsky's cinematic flair and Portman's harrowing downward spiral, but we don't exactly feel it. Reviewed by Rod Pocowatchit (3rd week)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of Dawn Treader (PG)
Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with King Caspian for a trip aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. This potentially syrupy allegory becomes razzle-dazzle children's entertainment, with the religious dimensions gracefully conveyed. Reviewed by Minneapolis Star Tribune (4th week)

 The Fighter (R)
A thoroughly engrossing look at the early years of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his brother (an almost unrecognizable Christian Bale in a firecracker performance), who helped train him. The story is really about Ward's family dynamic amid the boxing, with robust, sizzling performances from Melissa Leo as Ward's mother and Amy Adams as his lover. At the center of the raging storm of broad personalities, though, is Wahlberg's quietly controlled, restrained performance that's every bit as impressive. He's still shouting and screaming like everyone around him, only we see it instead of hear it. Ultimately, there is exciting payoff as Ward aims for a match that could boost his career, but the film overall is an emotionally charged, absorbing experience.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (PG-13)
The last book in the popular series comes in two parts (the final installment coming out next summer), as the evil Lord Voldemort's power grows stronger, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione set out to find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat him. This is much darker and drearier than the installments, and it's good to have a sense of danger lurking in the unknown. Reviewed by Rod Pocowatchit of The Eagle (7th week)

The King's Speech (R)
Sure to be an Oscar front-runner, this sumptuously told period drama is about Prince Albert, aka Bertie (an astounding Colin Firth) — the Duke of York and son of King George V — who suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life. When his father dies and his brother leaves the throne, Bertie is suddenly crowned King George VI. His wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), enlists the help of eccentric speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), and the men form an unlikely friendship as the new king must deliver a speech to his people as his country goes to war. Enthralling with bursts of wry humor, this is also rousing in the way that against-all-odds films are. And director Tom Hooper makes the finale speech itself incredibly suspenseful. We hang on every syllable, and Firth should win an Oscar for this scene alone. Reviewed by Rod Pocowatchit of The Eagle (2nd week)

Tron: Legacy (PG)
Sequel to Disney's 1982 film "Tron" that follows Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old who finds himself pulled into the same digital world where his father (Jeff Bridges) has been trapped for 20 years. This will feel too slow-paced for some, but sci-fi fans and gamers will find plenty to like — the visuals, art direction and action scenes are dazzling. What really keeps the show exciting, though, is the pulsating electronic score by Daft Punk — it's every bit a player as much as the characters. Otherwise, the story is kept overly simple, and Jeff Bridges adds some much-needed heart. Hedlund's breakout role is underwhelming, though. He's a bit stiff and tasked with delivering dialogue that's flat and obvious ("This can't be happening," "This can't be good"). Still, it's all a cool, dazzling theme park ride — if you take it at that. Reviewed by Rod Pocowatchit of The Eagle (3rd week)
