The use of 2:35 wide screen paradoxically increases the effect of claustrophobia. I would not like to be buried alive.
This exercise in racked nerves makes most of the year's thrillers look like flailing maniacs by comparison.
The political angle is gratuitous, even foolish, and certainly a distraction from the movie's visual strengths.
