Drama, Thriller
Ryan Reynolds is the only actor on screen for the duration of this political thriller. He plays a truck driver for a Halliburton-type corporation in post-war Iraq; after his convoy is ambushed, he awakes to find himself buried alive in a wooden coffin. His kidnappers have left him a cell phone, some lights, and a hostage note they want him to record for the Internet; with these few tools he desperately tries to find someone who will rescue him. As a cautionary tale about the perils of nation building, this is both creepy and provocative, but director Rodrigo Cortés blows it in the last few minutes with a rushed ending that feels like a cheat after all the escalating tension.
