|Astounding Thriller - 4.5/5|
What amazed me about this film was the ending. If you haven't seen it I won't ruin it but for those who have I would say the film had to end that way. It wouldn't have been half the film it was if it didn't. It was one of those films that leaves you stunned and speechless upon its ending. I actually felt a little sad too and had to tell myself that "it's just a movie". Now, if you agree with the many who put this film down on the aforementioned website, then you'll probably be shouting WHAT at the computer screen. I think this reaction stems from the fact the only person we see is Ryan Reynolds, who many wouldn't rate outside of rom-coms, and the fact the entire film is set in one place. I can understand these opinions but I allowed the film to take me away with it and I'm so glad I watched it.
If anyone is a fan of CSI you'll have seen the episode where that guy is buried alive. I say 'that guy' because I think it's the only episode I've ever seen all the way through. However, what an episode it was. Imagine that episode but as a film. And that's what 'Buried' is. It manages to be a fast-paced thriller that captivates and astounds you. The ending will blow you away.
This film is like Marmite, you either love it or hate it.
