CELLULAR (Theater Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsìììì

Cellular—great storyline—that is cramped due to the underdeveloped acting efforts of Chris Evans (Fantastic Four). William H. Macy’s personality balances some of that lack in his portrayal of the policeman while Jason Statham does a fair to middling job of acting the part of the bad guy.

Storyline

A kidnapped woman wires a broken telephone, contacts a random stranger, and asks for help.
