There's three one-word-titled films due this week, each worth at least one word of praise or criticism. 'Buried' is the best of the lot; Ryan Reynolds plays a U.S. truck driver buried in a coffin in Iraq with only a cell phone and a cigarette lighter as tools to set himself free. In one word: frightening. 'Stone' pits Robert De Niro against Edward Norton in a mind game as a convict attempts to manipulate a parole officer into an early dismissal. In a word: lackluster. And 'Takers' is a by-the-book heist film with hot-shot gangsters attempting one last score. In a word: ho-hum. Read on.
