The main characters run into a kid sitting on a swing petting a dog. They finally get his attention, and it turns out he's infected and he starts running towards them. They shoot him. They then see dozens of other infected people behind trees and starting to chase them. They run and hide under a boat until the infected go away.

When I first read Cell many years ago, I instantly thought it could be transferred to an amazing movie. (And funnily enough, even cast the same actors in my eyes for both Clay and Tom.)
However, the final product for the big screen was such a let down.. Though the scenes they took from the book were fairly accurate, they cut out at least 40% of the content. (Most of which is integral to the story telling and explaining what has actually happened.. The Raggedy Man / Red Hoodie Guy being one major oversight.)
I feel like if you hadn't read the book to begin with, you'll probably find yourself getting lost too easily.. There was a severe lack of pacing simply jumping from scene to scene and some changes which in my opinion were for the worst.
Overall I did still enjoy the movie, has a fairly unique concept and some very disturbing imagery, but had I have not read the book prior I don't think it'd be getting anywhere near 6/10 from me.
SUMMARY: GO READ THE BOOK INSTEAD, AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING READ.
