UNDERRATED The surprises of '127 Hours': Despite all the praise, we were skeptical about a film that spends its time under a rock up to an ending only slightly less well known than "Titanic." Luckily, Danny Boyle's directorial ADD comes to the rescue. Using sound, shock cuts and saturated color, Boyle makes not only the Utah desert look brilliantly brutal, but a trapped James Franco riveting (except for that gory climax, where covering your eyes is another kind of lifesaver).
