Ryan Reynolds ‘Buried’ Movie Delivered Lots Of Drama & Claustrophobia
Ryan Reynolds ‘Buried’ movie delivered lots of drama & claustrophobia. Lionsgate released their new Ryan Reynolds branded,mystery/thriller flick “Buried” into theaters this weekend. I checked it out last night,and I agree with the top critics’ positive assessment of the movie.
I thought it delivered a very unique storyline with tons of drama. However, I think I developed a case of claustrophobia by watching it and imagining if I was buried in a coffin. The movie stars: Ryan Reynolds and Jose Maria Yazpik.
“Buried” revolved around character Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) who is a truck driver over in Iraq,and wakes up to find himself buried alive in a coffin,tied up with nothing but a cigarette lighter,cell phone,a couple of glow lights,knife,and a flash light. However, he finds out about all these tools as the movie goes along.
He immediately starts panicing. As the story continues, he’s able to untie himself,get the lighter,and calls every freakin body he knows. After a couple of answering machines and a few left messages, he’s eventually connected with a hostage specialist in Iraq who is working frantically to try and find him.
At one point, Paul receives a call from his kidnappers,demanding $5 million dollars from the embassy for his release. Unfortunately a series of bombing events make it more difficult for the hostage specialist to find him,and the movie eventually ends with a shocking revelation.
I thought the movie was excellent. Even though it was about an hour and 20 minutes of just Ryan Reynolds trapped in a coffin,it still managed to deliver some exciting scenes. There were a few events that caused other things to enter the coffin with him that weren’t good for his health,and it was interesting to see what he did to get out of those situations with his very limited resources.
It damn near gave me claustrophobia just watching it because these movies are really good at bringing a person into the world of the film,and it was really hard to imagine being trapped in a coffin like that. It had me thinking about what the hell I would do if that ever happened to me. It was a very interesting and unique movie. I gave it a grade A for the uniqueness,alone. “Buried” movie is in theaters now. Get your “Buried” movie tickets at Fandango by Clicking Here.
