Extremely well done. Sitting through this movie-totally kept inside the coffin,no breaks-was a visceral experience. I was out of breath,panicking,felt my heart racing,feeling moments of hope and relief-all right along with Reynolds. This actor,camera work and score make this film a work of art.

Intense One-Man Show

By TheBearJew\m/
Written October 06, 2010
Buried is a movie unlike any other. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes of Ryan Reynolds trying to desperately get out of a wooden coffin, buried somewhere in Iraq, at a destination where he doesn't know where he is, and all he has is a zippo lighter, cell phone (which is in the Iraq language), glow sticks, and a poor flashlight. The movie is very intense, especially when he finds a snake slivering inside the coffin. The ending was the most intense and dramatic part. After the final moment, the screen goes silent and the credits roll. I was left breathless at this, I had to sit there for a couple of seconds to really absorb what just happened. It gave me chills down my spine. What an excellent movie.

It Actually Kept My Interest

Considering it takes place in a box for pretty much the whole movie, it actually kept my interest. I would recommend it, but not everyone I know would agree.
