Eh. A $20 leatherman multi-tool is fine for keeping in your desk or on your key chain. It will do the very basic jobs it was meant to do and isn't intended to replace a tool box, If I was going to do any real work I would get a real tool. I travel with a $20 swiss army knife and it's served me fine for all the little tasks I've needed it to do. In 127 Hours he was under-prepared for the task he was undertaking (crappy tools and not informing anyone of where he was going). If your going to take your arm off (or going camping) a $20 leatherman multi-tool isn't your best bet, if your going to open a box, open a beer, or tighten a screw on your glasses its going to do the job just as well as that $114.00 tool.
Not to mention it's half the size and a quarter of the weight of the $114 tool.
