May 7, 2019
Creepy at the best of times. Plenty of flaws to boot and there are definitely lacklustre performances out of Cusack and Jackson, which is unfortunate.
March 26, 2019
There is nothing to see here which can't be found done much better by countless other bad films which put Cell to shame.
October 18, 2018
An incoherent and disjointed festival of nonsense.
April 9, 2018
Predictable in a lot of places, but all concerned wisely play things for knowing laughs when the occasion demands (and it often does) and Cusack and Jackson make a grand pairing.
September 19, 2017
The theme of human enslavement to technology is still there, but Cell does not dive any further - besides the occasional reminder about the prevalence of telecommunication devices.
May 16, 2017
Cell is empty and meaningless, though it's gloomy and slow-moving enough to feign some philosophical weight.
February 15, 2017
The phone-as-evil concept makes a fast exit as Cell morphs into a zombie-like flick that bears the unmistakable patina of Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later.
February 7, 2017
This apocalyptic horror thriller is a movie that will appeal less to fans of the genre than to technophobic grumps who reckon mobile phones turn people into mindless zombies.
January 1, 2017
The opening is a hoot and the closer would make George A. Romero quake, but much in between is as flat as Cusack's battery.
January 1, 2017
This is the undead equivalent of fast food. Some might find comfort in all these known quantities. Those looking for anything of substance would do better to wait for an upgrade.
October 10, 2016
Unlike recent zombie efforts such as The Girl with All the Gifts and Train to Busan, Williams' work offers little in the way of originality.
October 10, 2016
A deeply silly horror movie.
September 2, 2016
Despite having all the potential to be a genuinely haunting and chilling zombie flick, the script feels outdated and clunky.
August 30, 2016
Another terrible film of 2016 that not even Stephen King's name can save. [Full review in Spanish]
August 28, 2016
Too many ropey CGI effects and predictable plot turns frequently bring the narrative grinding to a halt.
August 28, 2016
Slickly made and worth the watch.
August 28, 2016
The slapdash quality to the plotting is matched by the inept film-making - the dialogue is frequently inaudible, the night scenes murkily lit.
August 26, 2016
It's not without its weird charms, but those moments are few and far between, and for the most part it's gloomy and plodding.
August 26, 2016
Gives the tired zombie survival horror subgenre a much-needed recharge.
August 25, 2016
This surprisingly clunky Stephen King adaptation starts badly and goes downhill.
