Movie Reviews

Very suspenseful!
Brian Reaves | Anniston, AL USA | 04/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In what seems like the most unlikely premise of all, we are treated to one of the most suspenseful movies so far this year. Not many people could take a film that has 90% of it taking place in a phone booth and still make it good, but Schumaker pulls it off here. Colin Farrell really shines in this movie, and as the suspense mounts toward the film's resolution, you really feel sorry for him. The sense of hopelessness he's feeling becomes your own as you realize there's no easy way out of the situation. The only thing I have against this film is that it could have easily been made into a PG-13 film for a wider audience range with just the loss of profanity. The violence is not as full as Lord of the Rings, but every third word is profanity and that's what earned it the R rating. I understand that you're trying to show Farrell's character's mounting desperation, but it could have been toned down a bit. Still, Keifer Sutherland's calm and even-tempered tone of voice is just psychotic enough to make you cringe when your own phone rings. He's definitely on a roll with his series "24" and now this great movie."
Unusual Thriller
M. Babcock | Austin, TX USA | 09/03/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Phone Booth" is a tense, psychological drama with excellent performances by Colin Farrell, Forest Whitaker, and Kiefer Sutherland. If you're a Kiefer Sutherland fan, you don't see him until the very end of the movie, but you hear him throughout. The man can do amazing things with his voice. The premise is rather unusual, but the actors carry it off very well, and it does keep you on the edge of your seat."
Easily the best film of 2003, so far...

"...Well, I guess that isn't saying too much. Phone Booth is a suspense genre movie that is actually suspenseful! In only 88 minutes, Phone Booth managed to get me to the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Colin Farrel really displayed his ability to act. His character may not have been the perfect guy, but he still managed to make the viewer feel for him. With this movie, Kiefer Sutherland also managed to regain the top position as the scariest actor in Hollywood...with his voice alone! Joel Schumacher's directing was great. One might think having the whole movie take place in mostly a phone booth would be boring, but Joel managed to make the movie compelling and visually stimulating. The other actors were also great; although if you're a fan of Katie Holmes, she's in about two minutes of it. I would defintely recommend anyone to see, especially if the person has been hesitant about seeing thrillers due to the blatantly bad ones that have already come out, because Phone Booth delivers."
Not bad at all...Phone Booth is exciting and meaningful

"I do remember the previews of this film and I did not think it looked that great. I could not imagine that a movie that centered on a single location such as a guy trapped in a phone booth could create so many interesting plot points but I was wrong! This movie plays out kind of like the psychology of a revenge type guy who is snooping around people's dirty laundry. When he finds this one guy Stuart he really gets him to the wall. Stuart answers a random ringing phone at a phone booth one afternoon and suddenly he is blackmailed by a sniper! Really good acting but you cannot go wrong because a main police officer in this movie is played by Forest Whitaker. A good thriller that is worth of multiple viewings because of its simplicity and exciting scenes."
