About the Movie

Stephen Kingโ€™s best-selling novel is brought to terrifying life in this mind-blowing thriller starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. At the Boston airport, Clay (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cell phone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous "phoners" as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Even if it weren't cheap-looking and dreary, "Cell" would still be hobbled by an entertainment landscape already lousy with zombies, and a hive-mind premise that - at least metaphorically - has been all but realized. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 7, 2016

Rotten: Takes an intriguing satirical premise and dilutes whatever potency it had on the page. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2016

Rotten: What makes this movie about a zombie attack different from any other movie about a zombie attack? Nothing but its ineptitude. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety, Jul 8, 2016

Rotten: Even King's commentary on how cyber-connectivity breeds brainlessness feels shoehorned-in - mostly limited to a few lines from a snooty private-school administrator played by Stacy Keach. – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2016

Poor, Poor, Poor..

I would say if youre a fan of the book stay away but honestly, all people should stay away. Its horrendously put together. The plot is thin, the action is weak and ditches all the good parts of the novel. What's even worse is Stephen King helped write the screenplay!?! Ugh.. Poor.

Don't bother!!

There's a reason why this is a pre release at 9.99. It's rotten tomatoes to the core. Watched at a friends house and we all were like.. Really?? I'm so not impressed. ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…. All bad. 2 stars because I didn't pay for it at my friends & I like the main actors however bad this 1 is.

Being smart is hard...

People complaining about the price must not realize that this is available for rental before the movie is available in theaters. I don't understand why iTunes still allows reviews of things people haven't seen based solely on price. If you think it's too much then don't rent it... That's how capitalism works. Being ignorant and loud doesn't help anyone.
