It’s been a while since I last posted a review, but don’t worry readers I am still alive. No need to arrange my funeral just yet. Speaking of premature burials that chilling scenario is exactly what Paul Conroy, the star of Buried, has to endure. When the film begins we learn that the American...

After seeing this film advertised on its release I was very keen to see it as I love Horror/Thriller films and the idea of being buried alive truely terrifies me. So I figured that this film would make for edge of the seat viewing. It also starred Ryan Reynolds who happens to be an actor that I...

“A man and a box”

published 06/12/2012

ProGreat story, Acting is top class from Reynolds

ConsNone

Now who would have thought that a movie where the whole 90 minutes is just a man lying in a box could be so interesting. After all it would take a man of many talents to be able to keep the viewer hooked, maybe the likes of De Niro, Pacino, even Edward Norton. However the man in the middle, turns...

I came across this in Blockbuster but I'd heard about it beforehand online and on the radio. I was curious as to the concept of a film revolving solely around a guy being buried, though I didn't really think we'd be buried alive with him for the duration. Surprisingly it wasn't a bad watch...

Product Information : Buried(DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A man is caught in a desperate race against time in this claustrophobic thriller from director Rodrigo Cortes. Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is an American truck driver who has been contracted to work in Iraq, and while delivering a load of kitchen equipment as part of a humanitarian aid program, he's captured by insurgent guerrillas who intend to hold him hostage. Paul is struck unconscious, put into a coffin-like box, and buried, and when he comes to, all he has to help him get out is a lighter, a cell phone, a pen, and a jacknife. Trapped underground with a limited supply of air, Paul frantically calls his family, his employer, and American military and political representatives, trying to remain calm as his chances of survival slip farther away with each passing minute.
