Movie Review - Cellular
by Reggie Bannister
had a chance to watch Cellular the other day and my first
thought was that here we go with another spin-off of Phone
Booth, another movie with someone forced to stay on the
phone for 90 some minutes while we cringe in our seat.
But, to my surprise , this was actually a very enjoyable
movie. Im am not really sure what genre to classify
this movie in because it has it all. Suspense, drama,
action, comic relief; this movie has everything.
The movie begins with the kidnapping of Jessica Martin,
played by Kim Bassinger.
Jessica is a high school science teacher, (that happens
to wear fishnet stockings!!) who has her home broken into
and mysteriously taken away to an unknown location by
the bad guys and placed in an attic. They
smash the phone hanging on the wall and proceed to lock
Jessica in the attic. Jessica then rigs the
broken phone (remember - shes a science teacher)
and is able to randomly dial a phone number.
Now enters Ryan, played by Chris Evans, he plays your
typical early 20s dude whos only mission is
to win back his ex-girlfriend. Jessica finds a live number
and lo and behold, it is Ryans cell phone.
The movie then proceeds from there. Jessica cries out
for someone she doesnt know in a desperate plea
for help. Ryan initially has the normal reaction that
anyone would have when receiving a call like this, but
goes beyond the call of duty in an effort to save a woman
that he doesnt even know.
I am not going to be the spoiler and this is all I am
going to tell you, but this is a great sleeper movie.
Is it a little far fetched? Yes, but so what. Forget about
your problems and sit down and watch Cellular, I guarantee
you wont be disappointed!
