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.

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 …
