Taking Amber(Walton) as a hostage he is looking to escape abroad before recapture.
The film really benefits from some early morning drives through London from dusk til dawn so to speak. Walton plays her role well and essentially it becomes a road movie & a journey.
The dialogue is predictable but efficient and barring a barmy incident with a police officer it's quite a creditable tale. Dyer switches between nice guy/bad guy surpisingly well.
On the whole quite strangely entertaining.
if i see it for cheap i will pick it
The story is well written and utterly believable. This is not an action movie but a slow burning thriller. We are rooting for Amber throughout the whole film and during each scene we can imagine ourselves acting & reacting exactly the way she does. Just like the movies Red Eye, Cellular, and Phone Booth, the focus is on 2 characters in a nightmare situation and the hero/heroine is a regular person, so the audience is watching how someone realistically copes to save him/herself.
IN Buried, Ryan Reynolds spends the whole film underground in a coffin ‚" child‚(TM)s play compared to what Anna Walton is put through here. She spends an entire night locked in a car with Danny Dyer - while he acts at her." thats the daily mirror quote and its spot on.
danny dyer trys bless him but he just doesnt have the acting chops to pull off this role,at points he so bad your just laughing. for some reason though i wanted to stop watching but didnt im not sure why because some stuff in this film really annoyed me.the woman could have escaped on countless occasions and something's id like to think just would never happen. That being said the story was ok and i think a good film could be made out of the premise
