    YES. I've been enjoying a number of 1-set movies lately and somehow Buried tops them all by making that one set so claustrophobic as to be nearly painful. It's a movie where the action happens on a cellphone, the dialog creates all of the plot, and the ending.....oh the ending!

    Simple but effective film, its hard to say what a great performance Ryan Reynolds did in truth he did not had to do much but saying, that it was a great film to watch one not to be missed.

    If 15 years ago you had told me that Ryan Reynolds would turn out to be a pretty good actor I would have sent you to a mental institute. And now you would escape and seek revenge.

    Buried is 90 minutes of Ryan Reynolds buried alive in Iraq in October of 2006. Was this film inspired by a true story? I don't know. He plays a truck driver who is part of the re-construction program but the company that hired…

    Paul is a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

    I'm still amazed by Ryan Reynolds' performance, only cause It's the first time I've seen him act in a non-comedy/drama film...
    I enjoyed the movie, I it's well made but for me there was so much more to do with this film... it could have been great instead of just good!

    Engraçado como o filme parte de uma premissa minimalista justamente para repetir, mimetizar em uma menor escala, todos os clichês de um filme de ação. É quase fraudulento nesse sentido, a premissa promete uma outra abordagem mas ele é tão determinista e submisso a uma ordem correta de acontecimentos quanto qualquer outra obra milionária de mil efeitos e explosões.

    Buried is a little masterpiece in style and intensity. This is one of those little gems that come out once every twenty years or so. This film widens the possibility of what motion pictures can achieve. It's entirely set inside a wooden coffin and, as anyone would expect, with a single character on screen and in absolute darkness. The plot is focused on his attempts to call for aid outside to be rescued after being buried alive.

    Though the idea…

    A claustrophobic's worst nightmare, Buried is a brilliantly tense thriller that will keep you guessing from start to finish.

    Why is he in the box? Who put him there? Will he make it out by the end?

    Ryan Reynolds has never been better, giving a commanding solo performance for the full 90 minute running time.

    Ryan Reynold gives the performance of his career, in the claustrophobic, one-man show and doesn't bore you for a single second.

    A really dark movie. Way more enjoyable than it sounds like, when the plot is one guy being buried in a coffin throughout the entire movie.

    I'm not claustrophobic but man did this film make me feel uneasy.

    The director finds some interesting camera angles for a film set entirely in a box and Ryan Reynolds gives it his all for 90 minutes but that's all there is on the plus side.

    The rest of the film is a set of idiotic contrivances or decisions by Reynolds character to generate tension out of a one location thriller. By the time the snake turns up I was ready to give up myself.

    27 Hours by no means a great film itself did this sort of thing a lot better.
