Phone Booth Reviews

Rick Kisonak
Film Threat

The situation is suspenseful and unique enough to hold our attention for a time. Well in advance of the picture's climactic moments, however, it deteriorates into melodramatic talkiness.

Proof that Joel Schumacher is at his best with a simple story and a small budget.

Montreal Film Journal

Between Farrell's wrenching performance and Sutherland's ominous voice-over, 'Phone Booth' is more suspenseful than most movies.

I'd love to love this film. But Cohen's script is just so full of holes, it's impossible.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Little of its quality has much to do with Schumacher's direction, and almost everything to do with horror schlockmeister Larry Cohen's screenplay and strong performances by Colin Farrell and Kiefer Sutherland.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

A slick, occasionally tense thriller about the potentially deadly ramifications of forgetting one's manners and losing one's morals.

Farrell manages to come through with another hit.

You're sitting there thinking that this is just silly. But gosh darn if there isn't something about PHONE BOOTH that makes you want to see what's going to happen next.

It's a movie perfectly designed for tossing back popcorn.

Flipside Movie Emporium

For all its high-profile exposure, it's basically a gimmicky throwaway with only a hot star to separate it from direct-to-cable obscurity. That's not necessarily a criticism.

Laramie Movie Scope

It works, thanks mainly to the actor inside that phone booth, Collin Farrell.

boasts a single-note plot that evokes tension from its earliest moments and carries it through its svelte 80-minute running time.

It's far-fetched, yes, but so expert and swiftly-paced that we don't notice the holes until it's long over.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

All the heavy moralizing that comes after the nutty scenario soon becomes tiresome, and it left me wanting to hang-up on this film.

Entertainment Today

Phone Booth succeeds as a piece of pop escapism -- it's fresh and different -- but it also squanders an opportunity at something greater because its moral dialogue isn't ferocious enough.

An experiment in tension that pays off admirably.

The Badger Herald

A riveting tale of morality in a city noted for its sinful characters, "Phone Booth" is that rare edge-of-your-seat movie that is as cerebral as it is thrilling.

Schumacher does a fantastic job of making something smart out of something that could have been extremely simple.

Phone Booth is less pulse-pounding and more pulse-dialing. Unfortunately, top notch entertainment lacks call waiting.
