Just when you think it's getting silly, Cellular serves up another tantalizing twist. In the time-honored tradition of Sorry, Wrong Number and Wait Until Dark, Kim Basinger is well-cast as a resourceful damsel-in-distress ... more »who thwarts her kidnappers by connecting with a n'er-do-well cell-phone user (Chris Evans, later seen in The Fantastic Four) who races against time to rescue her from afar. One good cop (William H. Macy) assembles clues to uncover conspiracy, while first-time writer Chris Morgan and pulp-movie master Larry Cohen (who conceived the plot, similar to his own Phone Booth screenplay) serve up a consistently satisfying string of high-tension surprises. Jason Statham continues to prove his rising-star status as the film's tenacious villain, and director David Ellis (Final Destination 2) takes advantage of his experience as a veteran stunt coordinator and second-unit director, making good use of locations in his native Santa Monica, and wringing credible suspense from a deliriously far-fetched premise. --Jeff Shannon« less
This movie was very good, full of action and who dunn it sort of speak. The good guys, bad guys, who's who? Kind of keeps you guessing and wondering. The plot of how Ryan is going to save the Kidnapped lady keeps you on your toes, because he keeps coming to dead ends but always finds help another way. Quite intrigued with how much information traveled through a phone to different characters. Great movie, the ending wasn't the best ending or the ending I would of liked, but it worked. However, I was very disappointed when I got done watching the movie and watched the deleted scenes, because I felt they had the perfect ending originally which was later deleted and used for a deleted scene.

I loved this movie! It kept me glued to the screen. Jessica has to convince Ryan that this is no prank phone call, she's in real danger. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the roller coaster ride of life, intense!
