Storyline

Waking groggy in pitch darkness, Paul Conroy, an American truck driver working in Iraq in 2006, slowly realizes he is trapped inside a wooden coffin, buried alive. With his cigarette lighter, he can see the trap he is in, and he quickly realizes that there's not enough air for him to live long. He finds within the coffin a working cellphone, which allows him contact with the outside world. But the outside world proves not to be very helpful at finding a man buried in a box in the middle of the Iraqi desert. Paul must rely on his best resource--himself.

Trivia

Ryan Reynolds states that he suffered from claustrophobia towards the end of filming (much like the character he is playing). This was mainly due to the fact the coffin he was in was gradually filled with more and more sand as filming went on. He describes the last day of shooting as "unlike anything I experienced in my life, and I never ever want to experience that again." See more »

Goofs

The wick on the lighter protrudes above the wind guard for most of the film and in fact is above it just before the cut to the scene where the flame goes out. Seconds later in the scene where the flame will eventually dwindle, the wick is not visible. See more »

Brilliant!!
6 March 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Very few movies are made this way, the sheer rawness of this movie makes it all worth viewing, even though it keeps the same set the whole movie, it keeps you suspended, this is basically the closest thing you will get to the feeling of being buried alive and the movie really grows on you if you understand it.

It's one of the few movies that shows you how cruel, stupid and ignorant some people can be, in my opinion this is something that very few movies is able to capture.

Its raw and has no mercy, one of the most brilliant films i've seen and the acting is awesome, if you like suspension and an awesome thriller you won't be disappointed, a true pearl.
