Cellular cleverly fleshes out the premise of a cell phone being the connection between two strangers, and takes it from there.

... pure guilty-pleasure entertainment... a one-gimmick pony that amazingly holds your attention for ninety minutes...

O bom ritmo e as competentes seqüências de ação quase nos fazem ignorar os colossais furos do roteiro e a implausibilidade da trama de modo geral.

It's a smart dumb movie made by people who are intent on approaching ridiculous proceedings with wit and imagination.

a realistic (for Hollywood) thriller that proceeds at a breakneck pace...Kim Basinger and Chris Evans do terrific jobs.

Despite the occasional suspicion that you're watching an extended phone advert, Cellular is surprisingly good fun - it's fast-paced and inventive and even its dodgier moments are hilarious.

It worked for me. I had my over-critical circuits (and phone) turned off.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
September 22, 2004
A slick, unpretentious little film that's content with glowering villains, winsome protagonists and plot twists that provoke the occasional mild gasp.

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

Laramie Movie Scope
September 20, 2004
So well-crafted, fast-paced and comically self-aware it jauntily skips right over the holes in the plot.

Austin Chronicle

It's mad, bad nonsense of the summer, popcorn variety, disposable but oh-so-much fun to endure, a roller coaster on a wobbly cinematic track.

Using the clever premise, it packs a lot of thrills into a short space while keeping the level of tension consistently high.
