First, such an unfair called 'fantasy' movie. This movie looks more like well mixed realistic and surreal. Characters get confused when suspicious things happen. The bad guy's line represents it 'this is nonsense but it make sense'. I think this point of view makes The Phone stronger.
Second, the tricks were fresh. Most of time-reaction plot works were copycat, but the phone gently refuse those mistake. In police station sequence, smart presentation of time-reaction with a single notepad. Brilliant. Decent watch for whole two hours. Screenplay guy and the crew made it well done. Tracing sequence in lantern march was stunning, and the lawyer's house looks beautiful. Fine work. Recommended.
