Movie Review - Cellular
Cellular - 2005 New Line Productions Inc.
I had a chance to watch Cellular the other day and my first thought was that here we go with another spin-off of Phone Booth, another movie with someone forced to stay on the phone for 90 some minutes while we cringe in our seat. But, to my surprise , this was actually a very enjoyable movie. I’m am not really sure what genre to classify this movie in because it has it all. Suspense, drama, action, comic relief; this movie has everything.
The movie begins with the kidnapping of Jessica Martin, played by Kim Bassinger.
Jessica is a high school science teacher, (that happens to wear fishnet stockings!!) who has her home broken into and mysteriously taken away to an unknown location by the “bad guys” and placed in an attic. They smash the phone hanging on the wall and proceed to lock Jessica in the attic. Jessica then “rigs” the broken phone (remember - she’s a science teacher) and is able to randomly dial a phone number.
Now enters Ryan, played by Chris Evans, he plays your typical early 20’s dude who’s only mission is to win back his ex-girlfriend. Jessica finds a live number and lo and behold, it is Ryan’s cell phone.
The movie then proceeds from there. Jessica cries out for someone she doesn’t know in a desperate plea for help. Ryan initially has the normal reaction that anyone would have when receiving a call like this, but goes beyond the call of duty in an effort to save a woman that he doesn’t even know.
I am not going to be the spoiler and this is all I am going to tell you, but this is a great sleeper movie. Is it a little far fetched? Yes, but so what. Forget about your problems and sit down and watch Cellular, I guarantee you wont be disappointed!
