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.

A first I was a little reluctant to watch this movie as I had heard the whole movie takes place in a coffin underground. However I couldnt be more glad I did.

Paul Conroy, An American truck driver working in Iraq wakes up to find himself 6 feet underground in a coffin with one tool for any chance of rescue, a mobile phone quickly running out of battery.

I don't understand why some people greatly dislike 'Buried'. And to give the reason that it was rubbish because the 'whole film takes place in a box' is an unfair statement. For me this is what made the film great. From the moment the film begins it sucks you in to the convincingly acted character Paul Conroy's horrific situation.

Like many others my ultimate fear is being buried alive, which made me occasionaly think of what it would be like to be in Paul Conroy's position giving me an overwhelming sense of terror. It steers away from the usual cliche hollywood plot of heroes and villains and without spoling anything, Paul soon learns that everything about his situation isnt as black and white as he first thinks, delivering the audience with a disturbing political message.

See this film! It's not to be missed. Reminded me a little of phonebooth but with less of the hollywood directing and plot.

Paul Conroy, an American truck driver in Iraq, is kidnapped and buried in a coffin and wakes up with a lighter and mobile phone and the resolve to fight for his freedom. He is held to ransom and has to fight his fears, bureaucratic telephone personnel and his captors every step of the way.

This film is set entirely in the coffin and the intermittent light source, frustrating phone calls with various government agencies and scrabble to free himself makes for one claustrophobic and chilling film. The premise (being buried alive) is extremely scary and the political angle, whilst slightly cliché, adds another angle to the film that would be missing from a straight forward kidnap thriller.

Ryna Reynolds is very good as Conroy and you feel his frustrations and fears along with him. It is sad when he rings various family members and either gets through or reaches their answer machines. It is very difficult to make a film of this type engaging the whole way through and whilst some elements are a little far fetched, overall this is a gripping story. It is acted and directed well and make for just over 90 minutes engaging viewing. Worth a viewing at some point.

A well made 2010 film, with a difference. A guy buried in a wooden box. But he's alive - that's the difference! And that terrifying scenario makes up the entire film. Yes, the entire film!! But I was 'captivated' for that duration. And I really couldn't wait to get to the end.

I found myself closing my eyes and stopping my breath for as long as I could, trying to feel what the guy was going through. Cremation came to mind several times as a preferred method of eventual disposal. Anything but the horrifying risk of being buried alive.

Not a film that one can watch more than once (or twice if you're stuck on a desert island), but I still suggest that you see it, unless you suffer from severe claustrophobia or depression, in which case decline all offers at all cost.

One thing is for sure though - you will thank God for your existence after seeing this. Your complaints about life in general will subside too (for a while though), 'cos you now know that things could be much much worse.

Another certainty is that you will not forget this film. It will haunt you for a long time. Have fun!

Format: Blu-ray
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.
