Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea.

A young man receives a call on his cellular phone from a woman who says she's been kidnapped, and thinks she's going to be killed soon, along with her husband and son who the kidnappers have gone after next. The catch? She doesn't know where she is... and his cell phone battery might go dead soon. Written by
The phone Ryan is using is a Nokia 6600. See more »
Early in the movie when Ryan jumps in his truck, he closes the door and a crew member wearing a hat is clearly visible in the side window. See more »
Mom, will you still be a science teacher when I get into high school?
Hmm... You never know. Why?
'Cause I think it'd be kind of weird to have your mom as a teacher.

This is one of the worst movies I've ever started to watch! Take an episode of 24, remove any believable elements of the plot, replace the cast with actors who really REALLY cannot act (even Basinger is dreadful, more's the pity), sprinkle liberally with clichés and one-liners so bad Arnie would think twice, and you have Cellular.
The movie starts with middle-class suburban American (Basinger) putting blonde-haired, blue-eyed all American son on school bus. She goes home and is immediately kidnapped by grumpy bad man, Jason Statham (who, in his defence, was very good in a couple of Guy Ritchie films but is as bad as all the others in this God-awful nonsense). He locks her in a barn and smashes the only telephone in the room to smithereens with a large mallet. Somehow our ordinary American house-wife then manages to reassemble the wires and call a random moron (Chris Evans, who takes the wooden spoon for his "acting") on his "cellular" phone. 911 must've been engaged. It just gets sillier and sillier from there.
We watched for 15 minutes or so and it showed no sign of turning in to even a passable movie so we decided enough was enough. We looked at each other, cracked up laughing, ejected the DVD and posted it straight back to the rental company. If I'd gone to the cinema to watch this, I'd have been livid!
Absolute rot. Don't waste your time. Life is too short as it is.
