Critic Reviews for Cellular
Using the clever premise, it packs a lot of thrills into a short space while keeping the level of tension consistently high.
Neither Macy nor Basinger nor the intriguing setup nor the bursts of situational wit can rescue this thriller from joining the category of movies that are so bad they're good.
Cellular utilizes remarkable efficiency and ingenious construction to realize an exciting and funny story that seems plausible enough under the circumstances.
Audience Reviews for Cellular
A pretty good thriller. Nothing spectacular, but this film is very entertaining. The plot is simple, but very affective. It does take a few more "convenient" twists than I would have liked, but if you take this film for what it is, it's a fun ride.
Fast-paced action. I kinda liked it.
I think this is actually a very entertaining movie and overlooked in many ways. It has a really great pace and the characters are interesting and fun to watch. It's not all that extensive of a plot, but It's not a movie that was designed to be. You know the plot and what it's going to be like. For what it is, it's perfect. Chris Evans and the rest of the cast were great, I was pleasantly surprised. Jason Statham proves himself to be a man not to be messed with.
