Gives a fond remembrance of the days when a thriller actually used its title "Thrill"...

Phone Booth est un excellent suspense, mais aussi un drame psychologique qui s'aura vous divertir.

... a solid 90 minutes of well-intentioned entertainment, but it will do more to fuel urban paranoia than it will to make anybody re-examine their lives.

Way beyond plausible, but mercifully short.

Phone Booth is a much better movie than it has any right to be, given its absurd premise...

Stationary in concept and at the same time manically unhinged and psychologically multilayered

Farrell and Sutherland deliver such strong performances that it's easy to overlook the script's melodramatic dialogue and insane lapses of reality.

'Enlace Mortal es un sólido thriller que representa una de las mejores opciones de escapismo que han llegado a las pantallas en lo que va del año. Verdaderamente recomendable.'

As a cinematic experiment, Phone Booth is a resounding success. Even with its shortcomings, the film is destined to do well at the box office if only on the sheer charisma of Farrell.

A sloppy film filled with cheap moralizing. The plot holes are so large it's a good thing the streets were shut off from traffic.
