A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years -- which could shake the foundations of Christianity.
A slick New York publicist who picks up a ringing receiver in a phone booth is told that if he hangs up, he'll be killed... and the little red light from a laser rifle sight is proof that the caller isn't kidding. Written by

Cast as the villain, Kiefer Sutherland's likeness did not appear in the original posters. His face wasn't seen in the film's advertising until film was released on video, when it was put on the cover. See more »
The caller's intent to frame Stu for the murder of the pimp is flawed in several ways. Firstly, Stu would have had no gunshot residue on his hand. Second, hollow-point bullets do not fragment on impact, but flatten out to achieve a larger wound, so there would've been a bullet left behind. Third, when investigating deaths by gunshots, the investigator fires comparison bullets to help match the bullet found in the victim or the wound caused by the bullet. Fourth, the entrance wound would show that the pimp was shot from behind, but when he was struggling with Stu they were face to face, meaning Stu couldn't have possibly shot him in the back from that position.

I already told you this is a private conversation. Now, what the fuck do you want?
I just want you to know, that it's safe outside the booth.
No, it's not.
Always get out of the booth. I like in the fucking booth. It's my whole world now, this is my booth and I'm not coming out ever. You hear me? Never.

This is the kind of movie that is rare these days. It didn't cost an arm and a leg to make, it stars some good actors and the story line was plausible.
The Hitchcock influence is obvious and the pacing of the film was just right. This is the best work of director Schumacher. The lead could have been played by any yuppie looking actor but Colin Farrell does a good job anyway in a role that puts you in his character's place.
It's hard to make a movie work when it takes place in a confined space with few characters, but when those movies succeed, it shows. And that's how it is with "Phone Booth."
