Well made but some people should avoid it
8 February 2019 | by A.N.See all my reviews

As you'd expect, this is not for anyone who has above average claustrophobia and it's tough enough anyhow. They soften the technical details of how he's stuck but the point is clear.

Knowing it's a true story and knowing the ending doesn't make it easier. I don't get the negative reviews, or how it might have been done better, except as a gritty technical exercise (a different type of movie).

The flashback and premonition scenes are well done, also. This was a difficult story to tell under any circumstances.
