Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Neither Macy nor Basinger nor the intriguing setup nor the bursts of situational wit can rescue this thriller from joining the category of movies that are so bad they're good.
- CT Staff, Christianity Today, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Its adroit use of suspense makes you overlook the silliness.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Friday, September 10, 2004
Fresh: Logic has nothing to do with Cellular, but it's so quick-moving and fun we don't care.
- Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle, Friday, September 10, 2004
Cellular is as corny as an Action movie can be and as a result is highly predictable, whilst I'm sure it's going to be a highly forgettable film, it did at least hold some kind of entertainment value to make it watchable. Not one to watch for Jason Statham fans as this was far from his best role to date, he wasn't the main star and his accent yet again was terrible. Easy watching but slightly laughable.

Cellular is an interesting average Thriller film. The cast is decent at best and the story is not too bad either. I'm usually not a fan of Kim Basinger, but in this film shes pretty good. Jason Statham gives a good performance here, and usually I find him pretty hit and miss. The film is directed by Snakes On A Plane Director, David R. Ellis, and this film is much more thrilling than Snakes. This is a far more serious film, and is tense, and thrilling. Cellular is purely a terrific average Thriller that is a lot of fun to watch. It's not a flawless Thriller, but for what it's worth its a pretty good one at that.

Cellular could have been a decent thriller but David R. Ellis spent next to no time on character development or story and went a bit over the top. Take the clever simplicity of Phone Booth, replace it with stupid dialogue, unlikely turn of events and mind-numbing action sequences and you've got Cellular. It's like the guys from the Orange mobile phone adverts actually got one of their films made! William H. Macy brings a slight watchability to the film though, a star just for him (Although he should have known better) Alfred Hitchcock, we miss you! Ps. Having one of your own films playing on the TV in the back ground is so egotistical, it?s quite unbecoming of a director. And I liked Final Destination 2!
