| Suspenseful and exciting!
A man wakes up to find himself locked in a buried coffin with nothing but a cell phone, lighter and a flask of alcohol. That's the simple premise for this unique thriller. Ryan Reynolds brings his acting talents to a role that breaks from his usual comedic style. The film's 95 minute running time is completely dependent on Reynolds and he delivers a completely believable and realistic performance.

On top of Reynolds' performance this Spanish/Australian production boasts amazing direction by Spanish director, Rodrigo Cortes and a thrilling musical score by Victor Reyes. The simplicity of the plot allows the filmmakers to truly get creative. Having an entire film with only one character in a coffin using what seems to be natural lighting? Not a problem. The script even manages to have a lot to say (it's set in Iraq) whilst continuously raising the tension levels to the point of it nearly being unbearable.

Buried is a suspenseful and exciting thriller that forces the viewer to feel claustrophobic at every opportunity. This isn't just a movie, it's an exhausting experience that leaves you breathless.
