AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Though it's gimmicky and occasionally feels like a high-end cell phone ad, Cellular is also an energetic and twisty thriller.

Critic Reviews for Cellular

All Critics (149) | Top Critics (22)

Cellular, based on a story by Larry (Phone Booth) Cohen, is a mobile phone thriller starring Nokia - it's depressingly implausible

September 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's the classic Hitchcock 'wrong man' set-up, pulled off with wit, energy, and a healthy sense of the ridiculous.

Buoyant, pleasantly pulpy, invigorating doodle.

September 14, 2004

The picture has a low-stakes, cop-show vitality to it; it doesn't pretend to be more than the sum of its parts.

September 11, 2004

It's Ellis's dedication to providing an unrelenting series of silly B-movie set pieces that makes the ridiculous Cellular ring.

September 10, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Its adroit use of suspense makes you overlook the silliness.

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.

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.
