170219: Outside of Jessica Biel's fashion sense, and good looks, this film is bad, just bad. I mean, I really dislike this film (I hate to use the word hate). What do a bunch of beautiful bodies, and some not so beautiful; and Jason Stratham, all have in common? No acting skills! The secret of this film lies in the cellular technology of the era. In 2004, it was new and exciting. In 2017, it's now old and dated. So, without that thrill, Cellular offers nothing outside of some equally dated, yet still effective (unlike the cells), 45 Smith & Wesson pistols. The funny thing is William H. Macy, who is intended to be goofy, is the only real standout actor in this film. The DVD offers an interesting extra-feature on the cellular technology of the time.

Great Film! Very original story, superb writing, and a very professional and phenomenal cast! Please watch this great film. Best film of 2004 in my opinion.

Thrilling and entertaining. Better than I expected.

Fun thriller, the fast pace movie does get silly at times but the absurdity can be overlooked for the overall entertainment value. Got a stellar star cast but not great performance. It's a typical corny action thriller and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Cellular is a substandard film. It is about a young man who receives an emergency phone call on his cell phone from an older woman. Kim Basinger and Chris Evans give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. David R. Ellis did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

Sure a lot of it was clichà (C), you never actually feared the characters were in danger and some of it was pretty stupid but it was a good distraction.

Just an average thriller that tries something a little different but never anything great or memorable, A good cast but not greatly acted, Some good bits but the whole story is predictable and bland at times.

It is interesting at first, but unfortunately, there is a lot of unnecessary scenes and scripts. Sad to say, shame.

Great cast awesome premise with some kickass thrills. Thanks to a young but very engaging Chris Evans the film is lifted from decent action thriller to an awesome hostage underdog story of sorts

Good action (for its time) but horrible acting.

Decent plot. Chris Evans & William H Macy great. Jason Statham playing his default character. Kim Basinger irritating as the damsel in distress.

This movie throws you into its highly energetic story in less than two minutes into the movie and never really lets the viewer catch a breath till the end. Held together by a great choice of cast and some thrilling scenes this is an underrated thriller from the 00s.

And it only gets that because Chris Evans try's so hard, but no matter how much you polish it it's still gonna be ****

Chris Evans is not just a handsome man with a body but also a good actor which comes through in this thriller. He steals the show. It's a fairly fast paced movie with twists and turns. Not all scenes are plausible but it is very entertaining nonetheless.
