About the Movie

Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds), truck driver and family man, wakes up buried alive in an old wooden coffin. Not knowing who might have put him there or why, his only chance to escape from this nightmare is a mysterious cell phone. Poor reception, low battery and lack of oxygen are his worst enemies in a race against time: Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An experiment in limitation that, at least until the movie's deflating final payoff, manages to tap into our deepest anxieties. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Oct 1, 2010

Fresh: Buried may be claustrophobic in scale, but its impact is immense. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Aug 22, 2011

Fresh: The tension keeps building, right to the end. Proving yet again that in movies, even though the space may get smaller, the picture doesn't have to. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Oct 8, 2010

Fresh: The suspense is gripping, even when the substance isn't. – Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, Oct 1, 2010

This was a really great movie. I was one of few people to see this in theaters and I loved it. Im not sure you can get the same feeling watching this on an ipod or computer like the theater.


Rodrigo Cortes does a great job directing, and Ryan Reynolds has the greatest performance of his career. Now, don't get me wrong, everybody should know before they spend their money that EVERY single scene of the 90 is in a coffin with Ryan Reynolds. Every one. No flash backs, cuts to the surface, nothing.

Personally, as a fan of cinema, I admire Cortes' audacity to go through with a very un-Hollywood film, but this movie is definitely not for everyone. But if you are tired of the typical, predictable, high-budget, over-produced Hollywood blockbusters and want to see true innovation in script, cinematography, and directing I would recommend Buried.

And I want to reiterate that Reynolds truly comes through and connects with the audience. (btw i saw it in theaters, but if you are going to watch it at home put it on the biggest screen possible and turn off all lights for greatest experience)

Hitchcock's apprentice
