I'm as surprised as most that this film manages to sustain it's running time and never bore. It's a one man show filled with suspense. For those reasons alone, I have to give it a good rating. It's not a great film, but it delivers as much as possible from it's unique premise.

The execution so desperately tries to conceal the fact that this film is simply pure gimmick... and, were the task not so Herculean, almost succeeds at it. Sadly, though, it was not meant to be.

"Buried" by Yojimbo

A civilian contractor working in Iraq awakens to find himself trapped in a wooden coffin and buried underground. Very much the Ryan Reynolds show, Buried is set in its entirety in a wooden box with Reynolds himself being the only character to appear on screen. A bit of a "concept" film, Buried is obviously limited by its own premise; we see nothing but a man in a box being scared and desperate and talking on the phone. A lot. The film clearly hinges on Ryan's performance and he is perfectly believable in the part and its nicely shot and decently paced but like the similar 127 Hours, you cannot escape from the fact that you are just watching a bloke in a hole for 90 minutes. The attempt to spice things up featuring a serpentine intruder is just a bit daft and the "twist" at the end rather ...

If you hate small spaces, this ain't for you!

Over the course of last year, a lot of the acting buzz was focused on two performances: James Franco and Colin Firth. People turned heads at Franco's amazing and emotion driven performance in 127 Hours and audiences were dazzled by Colin Firth's performance as King George VI in The King's Speech. I've not seen The King's Speech but I have seen 127 Hours, so since I've only seen one of those films, perhaps to early for me to say this. But, of all the performances I've seen in 2010, the award for the best goes to Ryan Reynolds for Buried!

Reynolds plays Paul Conroy, a contractor working in Iraq. One night, he's truck is attacked by terrorists. Leaving Paul unconscious. Paul wakes up in a coffin with nothing but a lighter, a cell phone, and various resources of light. With limited oxygen ...
