Ryan Reynolds is a good actor with a really shitty agent. The guy has gotten a pretty bad rap with many of his films ether getting panned or bombing horribly.
But then something happens. His agent ends up growing a few more brain cells and pairs him with a script that can actually USE his talents rather than him doing his best to work with terrible material.
"Buried" is about Mr. Reynolds who wakes up in a coffin, buried alive with a flask, a lighter, and a cell phone. Probably a typical way to wake up for post "Green Lantern" Reynolds.
And the rest of the movie is him trying to figure out why he's here, what he can do…
