Goofs

At Santa Monica Pier, Ryan was caught by Chloe when he was talking on the phone with Ethan. The cops came, but Ryan jumps off the pier and into the sea. Then we saw him coming out off the water and hiding inside a warehouse under the pier. And when Ethan is about to kill Mooney, Ryan calls him with his cellphone. Unless the Nokia 6600 were waterproofed he wouldn't be able to do that call. See more »

Highly entertaining
15 January 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A popcorn thriller that draws heavily on PHONE BOOTH for its inspiration (written by the same guy, Larry Cohen), CELLULAR take us on one heck of a ride right from the opening sequence, as a bunch of bad guys kidnap a woman (Kim Basinger), Her only contact with the outside world accidentally becomes a young man (Chris Evans) with a cell phone, hence the title. William Macy as a retiring cop (shades of FALLING DOWN!) and Jason Statham as the main bad guy (and whose name is curiously missing from the IMDb credits for this film) lend able support. A harrowing car chase forms the centerpiece of this mindless but thoroughly enjoyable action flick, just as a huge chain accident formed the heart of the director's previous FINAL DESTINATION 2. The movie remains taut throughout, but it also has deft moments of comedy, to remind us we're watching a movie. In particular, watch for the scene where Evans is in desperate need of a cell phone charger. It's hysterical.
