We Got This Covered

Buried is a one of a kind experience that goes well beyond just a movie with a neat idea. It's a thriller that really works and is one of the best films I've seen all year.

A nifty gimmick rarely translates into satisfying cinema, but Buried qualifies as an exception.

Total Film

With little more than one actor, a mobile phone, a (very full) Zippo and a few disembodied voices, director Rodrigo Cortés has created a 95-minute panic-attack-made-movie.

Reynolds and Cortés deserve credit for their ambition and Buried is a tense but enjoyable experience for anyone interested in the core 'buried alive' concept.

(...) Como ejercicio narrativo bastante claustrofóbico y moderadamente angustiante, tiene su atractivo. Gran parte del resultado es mérito del actor Ryan Reynolds.

A brilliant genre thriller using space and perspective to confine us with the protagonist.

This experiment in minimalist filmmaking succeeds in part because of the tight, controlled performance by one of People magazine's sexiest men (buried) alive!

Lessons of Darkness

Conveys the intensity and introspective horror of its subject's extreme life-or-death circumstances far more authentically and grippingly than the similar, flashier and shallower 127 Hours.

Buried may well be an allegory for the fates of so many Americans waylaid in sandier climes, but it works first and foremost as an experiential horror film -- the best of its kind in some time.

Reynolds is riveting, and it's possible to appreciate Cortés's bravura cinematic accomplishment. But that'll come much later, after you catch your breath.

It's kind of like if Saw were a one-man show in a tiny theater.

The Standard

While its central conceit - its six-feet-under micro-location - might seem gimmicky, it's a gimmick that would get real tired real quick if not for an exceptional script and one hell of a performance.

Rodrigo Cortés's film is rigidly grim and relentlessly discomforting - thanks to superior sound design, creatively claustrophobic camerawork and a one-man-show from Ryan Reynolds, who leaves no room for sarcasm in this sarcophagus.

Buried, despite its seemingly impossible premise, is by turns funny, suspenseful, moving and -- in one heart-stopping sequence worthy of Indiana Jones -- incredibly exciting.

An edge-of-your-seat nail-biter that's about as unique as they come.

If the aim is to be unpredictable and to revel in cynicism, you run the risk -- realized here -- that the movie becomes more an authorial statement of purpose than a story the audience can believe in.
