Stephen Dorff has a coffin fit

After Buried comes another claustrophobic man-in-a-box thriller.

Stephen Dorff is Jeremy Reins, a Secret Service agent kidnapped, locked in a see-through coffin in the boot of a car and tormented by unseen terrorists plotting a DC-wide carnage campaign.

There are some early zingers - not least when a swarm of bees is let into his plastic prison.

But directed by TV vet Gabe Torres, Brake is an increasingly contrived, hysterical and, ultimately, infuriating ride that pulls one too many switches for its own good.

All credit to Dorff, mind, for having the cojones to take on this 90-minute solo show.
