Movie Madness: Buried

A long time ago , like near the end of summer 2010 my friend and I were in the theaters and we saw a movie preview for Buried. The preview was so interesting because all it showed was a black screen with a flicker of a lighter and a guy screaming and talking about how he was buried alive! When I saw this I knew that I had to see this movie! Yet, I waited and waited and it never came out in theaters! Then the other day I was in Blockbuster and there it was sitting on the new releases shelf. I grabbed it find out that Ryan Reynolds was in it, which meant I had to get it! I mean who can resist him?

Basically the movie is about a truck driver who is sent to iraq to deliver things the residents. When he(Reynolds) wakes up in a coffin unsure of how he got there. All he remembers is that his truck and others were under attack by some of the local people of Iraq. Having only a lighter,  a few glow sticks, some water and a phone with a short battery life he must try and escape and get help from the American Government. Yet, he finds difficulty because the American Government won't pay his ransom, his kidnappers are making demands from him, his battery is dying and time is running.

Overall I like the movie! I wish that it had came out in theaters. Reynolds steps up to the plate and plays his part very well and you can sense his emotions through the screen. Even though it was a good movie it wasn't mind blowing therefore I would give it 3 1/2 stars. I would also recommend that you go out and rent this because it keeps your attention at  every moment.


  1. oh this definitely looks like my kinda movie... i love movies that keep you engaged and have you sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the movie! thanks for the review :) x
