      Audience Reviews for Phone Booth

      • Dec 18, 2015

        A film set in a phone booth 99% of the movie shouldn't be as gripping and fast paced as it was, A simple plot and a great performance from Colin Farrell makes this film great fun and quite scary, A fun film that should've got more praise.

        "You hear a phone ring and it could be anybody. But a ringing phone has to be answered, doesn't it?" Extremely intense and suspenseful, Phone Booth is a gripping psychological thriller from director Joel Schumacher. When a publicist named Stu Shepard answers a random call while in a phone booth he's taken hostage by a sharpshooter who's intent on forcing him to come clean of the lies he tells. Colin Farrell and Kiefer Sutherland both give excellent performances that are really powerful; particularly Sutherland, who brings a real malevolence and sinister edge to his character. And Schumacher uses an interesting directing style with split screens and picture-in-picture that creates an immersive experience. Incredibly gritty and provocative, Phone Booth is an exciting film that's extraordinarily compelling.

        Phone Booth is one of Joel Schumacher's finest films and was a brave return from his "Batman & Robin" flop. Colin Farrell and Forest Whitaker were excellent in their roles, the tension was great, and the fast-pace in the movie works very good with this thriller. The movie isn't something to talk about all the time but its a great blockbuster movie and boosts a fantastic villain who is played by Kiefer Sutherland.

        A suspenseful movie with a clever premise, but also one that ends without much of a pay-off.
