Chicago Sun-Times
It's one of the best films of the year.
75
New York Daily News
Disturbing, visually stunning thriller.

Rolling Stone
Tarsem uses the dramatically shallow plot to create a dream world densely packed with images of beauty and terror that cling to the memory even if you don't want them to.
63
Boston Globe
Many of the film's images will prove more than some viewers can take.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer
Has its effectively nasty, chilling moments -- and it also brings body piercing to new heights of ickiness.
63
Chicago Tribune
Impresses more than it entertains.

Baltimore Sun
The Cell is eye candy - but it could give your brain a bad case of indigestion.

Mr. Showbiz
Repetitive, aimless, and as frustrating as you'd imagine any two-hour music video to be.
58
Entertainment Weekly
The Cell is foremost about singular imagery, a succession of still pictures strung together frame by frame.
38
USA Today
There's so little action or suspense that this Cell isn't too likely to multiply itself into a sequel.

San Francisco Chronicle
Any way you slice it, it is still pointless.
