Product Description

Rodrigo Cortes directs this claustrophobic suspense thriller. Ryan Reynolds stars as Paul Conroy, an American driver contracted to deliver supplies to soldiers in Iraq. After an attack by an Iraqi resistance group, Paul wakes to find himself buried alive inside a coffin with only his mobile phone and a cigarette lighter. With only 90 minutes' worth of oxygen between him and certain death, Paul's worst enemies become intermittent reception and a rapidly draining battery as he engages in a desperate and tightly-confined battle for survival.

5.0 out of 5 stars A claustrophobia-inducing thriller 18 Jan 2011
Buried features Ryan Reynolds (The Nines) as Paul Conroy, a man who wakes up in coffin with little idea how he got there other than a vague recollection of his supply convoy being attacked by insurgents. Buried in the desert with no way out, he resorts to the contents of his pockets for a life line and chance of escape.

Buried is an excellent concept, faced with the option of certain death, how far would you go to get out? Ryan Reynolds plays the role fantastically as he goes through the full range of emotions, from the initial terror, rage at being put on hold whilst in a life or death situation or even the joyful release when he finally gets in touch with his wife. He should be commended for carrying this entire film on his shoulders and making it a plausible and dramatic experience to boot, really inspiring empathy for his character.

Whilst one might find it strange to praise the cinematic direction of a film shot entirely inside of a coffin; the limited space and claustrophobic environ is used to absolute perfection. The film has marked themes signified by the colour of the light inside the coffin changing, moving from the yellow of a lighter flame to the screen-glow blue of the blackberry to the green of the glowsticks and finally the red of the signal-filter on a flashlight. Each motif is fitting with the pacing of the scene and resultantly I felt that Rodrigo Cortés' direction was truly impeccable.

Extra content: There is a making of featurette called "Unearthing Buried" which was pretty entertaining seeing how they managed the swooping shots inside of the coffin over the actor.

If you're even vaguely claustrophobic, you will experience one of the most relentless and nerve shredding 95 minutes of your life. Even worse for me was the frustration, panic and anger with the people Paul deals with on the phone; this movie is not only incredibly intense, but has a resounding political message on how different departments and institutions deal with situations like these.

The directing and writing is absolutely excellent, which is two of the main aspects which make this film a success; I've been a Ryan Reynolds fan for a few years, and I've watched and loved him in various comic and romantic movies, but this really proves what a fantastic actor he is.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'A TALE OF DESPAIR' 25 July 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
The film plays out 'man's' worst fears---being buried alive-----stuff of nightmares.
The film tells the tale of 'Paul Conroy' (Ryan Reynolds) a truck driver working in 'Iraq' who is captured during an insurgent's ambush on the convoy in which he was driving a truck.
He is captured, and this is where the tale begins....waking up in a wooden box and buried a couple of feet below the surface.
obviously dis-orientated he begins to assess his plight, trouble is screaming help from below ground is not only a waste of breath, it's also using up valuable oxygene, in lighting up a cigarette lighter he finds he has a few extra's alongside including a mobile phone.
He soon understands via the mobile he's being held for ransom.
The film,played out within the wooden box is often a tense affair, during which many of his attempted calls for help by way of the 'mobile-phone' falls on deaf-ears.
The largely 'one-man-show' is worthy of at least watching.

By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A bold move, making a movie set entirely inside a coffin.. full of innovative ideas to keep the action as fresh as possible, with an involving performance from Ryan Reynolds.. however, all that effort just doesn't quite get over the fact that this is a movie - set in a box.
We open the movie with Ryan Reynolds waking up in the titular state, and becoming aware of his surroundings. As he calls on his phone for help and tries to contact his family, we learn how it happened, and Reynolds convincingly portrays the different stages of emotion one might expect to feel under such circumstances. A multitude of camera angles, a surprising variety of lighting and varying tones as his conversations switch from his potential rescuer to his family to the perpetrator, do their best to keep involvement at its peak. In the end though, it ultimately seems a somewhat shallow affair - it is clever and intelligent enough to be thought provoking, but the premise limited enough that the thoughts provoked don't go far.
Plaudits to all concerned, not least Reynolds for holding his own throughout the movie, and to the imagination of cinematographer and director - I love to see movies that experiment like this being made.. but it doesn't stop me finding in the end that this particular experiment didn't quite cut it. (4/10)

4.0 out of 5 stars Buried - Under Ground. 18 Nov 2012
If you don't like a film that is set in the one scene this won't be for you.

As I've said in some of my previous film reviews despite being only one and a half hours long it feels a lot longer for the majority of the film. As is often the case in a lot of films, the last fifteen to twenty minutes are really good and I won't spoil it for you but I quite liked the ending.

I can imagine some people out there not liking the movie, but for me it was a worthy watch.
