      Critics Consensus

      Though it's gimmicky and occasionally feels like a high-end cell phone ad, Cellular is also an energetic and twisty thriller.

      Pickatcu 1 Two lies that this movie showed: -A Nokia phone brakes -The same Nokia phone has low battery Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/19/23 Full Review Andreas K From the basic idea an exciting film with the young Chris Evans before he became Captain America, but who has aged incredibly badly (seen in 2023). Compared to today's productions, it looks like a TV production. In addition, it is difficult to see Jason Statham as a villain, since he is playing more heroic roles these days. Nowadays such a film would no longer find its way to the cinema but would disappear in the stream. Mediocre entertainment despite a prominent cast. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review marcela m This film passes to who is watching the exactly feeling of fighting for your family life, leaving the viewer distressed. But seeing Chris Evans' abdomen is good to. For sure isn't the best film in the world, nothing innovative or revolutionary, but in those one hour and a half it entertains the viewer. The whole history of a corrupt police officer is just so... ordinary. Cellular is a movie for seeing when you just want to pass your time watching Chris Evans being heroic, saving a family from the bad guys and without any shirt. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review breno g Special Effects: 0,5/Sound Effects: 0,0/Acting: 0,0/Story: 0,5 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review stoner j Seems kinda cheesy initially but it works out and is definitely a worthy thriller Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The acting of Kim Basinger, William H. Macy, Jason Statham, and Chris Evans are good in this thriller that does a lot to show how far Cellular phone technology has come since 2004. Some good elements of suspense and quasi-action but not very believable or particularly exciting. Hard to believe they were able to assemble this cast for this one.
