What a Waste of TimeBy b0red0m (168 reviews) from London, England , 16 Feb 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I like Ryan Reynolds so thought I would give this a try. Thought it might have been a little like PhoneBooth. NO!! Phonebooth was actually really good. This was a load of rubbish. The storyline weak and no real acting needed. No real suspense and you couldnt care less what happened to him. No connections with any of the characters. Do not waste your time and a rental with this film. I feel cheated. Would never watch again.

Really a claustrophobic waste of timeBy a customer , 16 Jun 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideDidn't rent this - it was on ITV4 - and Im glad I didn't rent it. The main - only - character in this movie played by Ryan Reynolds rings up various useless characters and whilst in his coffin prison is told he was fired yesterday. The everlasting phone,and zippo lighter are two of his few tools. Throughout he gets increasingly frustrated with his situation. Long story short ,this is a typical American who has little sympathetic virtues in his predicament and final dies when his saviors dig up the wrong man. Basically I have never seen such wasted time on a cell phone to little avail. Don't bother with this movie.
So boringBy gianino (631 reviews) from London , 08 Jun 2013Ryan Reynolds is really good and hot; this is the good news. I always like him and I think he's a great actor; however, this film sucks. It's boring, unexciting and flat. Bad written and uninspiring tbh
Claustrophobic but not badBy a customer , 31 May 2013Good film considering it's all set iin a coffin with just Reynolds. A little claustrophobic but despite this Reynolds gives a good performance
I'll do you a favourBy LemmingLife (5 reviews) , 22 Apr 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideand save you a couple of hours of your life. Guy gets buried in a box in Iraq, or Nevada or somewhere - it doesnt matter because you only see the inside of the box, and you only see the guy in the box. all the other actors are 'voice talent'. He has a magical phone that works underground, and tools to dig himself out, and a zippo. He rings a few people, and gets them to look for him and waits for them to find him. They don't find him. He dies. Presumably because he forgot to use the tools in the box to dig his way out. This is called Darwinism in action.
Really ClaustrophobicBy cloud4ever (9 reviews) , 11 Mar 2013A film that really does make you feel trapped! If your looking for face-paced action movie this film really isn't for you. However if your looking for more of a drama/survival sort of film then your looking at the right film. This film draws all the right emotions from you. For me this film was an okay film- I saw the coffin as more of an hourglass than anything. If you love analyzing films then rent this one- however if your looking for more of a long last survival then probably look at 127 hours
