    I went into this expecting an innovative film that plays with space & filmic constraints, like a companion piece to All Is Lost, with its one actor & one location and a theme of the ingenuity of the human spirit under great strain. Turns out, it's less of a companion & more of the antitheses.
    The above themes are present, in addition to which, the film is completely scathing about the Iraq war, absolutely merciless about those caught in the cross-hairs. Particularly vitriolic…

    **Part of 'The Greatest One Location Films Ever?' list*

    I was sure that I didn't need to verify the authenticity of the one location aspect to this film...& I was right! It's one of the most ambitious of one location films ever made. Filmed entirely in a box - let alone a room!
    It's superb. Brilliantly acted by Ryan Reynolds.

    It's hard to imagine a film could be compelling when it only takes place in one, very small setting - a coffin. It's even harder to imagine making Ryan Reynolds the actor on which the film is anchored. And yet it works. It's compelling, suspenseful, and moving.

    Taking place entirely in a wooden coffin, Buried follows a U.S. truck driver, Paul Conroy, who finds himself buried alive and is in a race against time to get out of this claustrophobic deathbed.

    While the story was very minimal, it still managed to keep me interested in what was about to happen to Paul. However, the script could have used some cleaning up since I managed to notice some plot holes and some continuity errors that ended up taking…

    Fairly/reasonably good. When you take into consideration that the whole film is restricted to quite simply one guy in a box with a zippo, and a cell phone; it is surprisingly entertaining, well scripted and directed. Although, Ryan Reynolds is a cunt.

    For a movie just about a guy who was buried alive, the filmmakers sure do a great job at keeping it visually and mentally interesting.

    The idea of taking a single actor and setting the movie in a box for 90 minutes seems like it should not work. Cort�s and crew turn this wild idea into a very taught and gripping film.

    Cortes and Reynolds have much to teach the rest of the world about creating a terrifying, thrilling and tense piece of film. Ryan Reynolds is unparalleled in this role, and the direction is simply second to none.

    An uncomfortable, yet gripping film done entirely in a coffin with only Ryan Reynolds, who gives possibly his best performance to date. The only complaint I could give is that this isn't a movie you could watch over and over; it's heavy and you feel exhausted afterwards, being in that situation with Reynolds. Nonetheless, it does not detract from this underrated and intense thriller.

    Largely uninteresting, bland and cliché plot. Despite Reynolds' decent performance, I found myself rooting for the sand out of sheer boredom.
