About the Movie

But when Stu answers the phone in the phone booth, the terror begins. Now it's a real-time race against the clock as Stu must outwit a psychotic sniper in a frantic scramble from phone booth to freedom.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A superficially gritty yet soullessly slick melodrama.
Fresh: A movie that combines a seriousness of purpose with an impish delight in craft, in a way Hitchcock would have appreciated.
Fresh: Short, suspenseful, funny, and profane.
Fresh: A first-tier thriller, Phone Booth will make you think twice before you ever enter a public phone facility again, but while it curls your hair, it makes you think.
This movie is a must buy, im surprised im the only reviewer of this movie so far. This movie has intense on the edge of your seat suspenseful action that i would gladly pay 10 bucks for.
Though It's Messy and Predictable, It's Mildly Entertaining...
Okay, I'm the smallest Colin Farrel fan out there in the wide world called Earth, but I was surprised at his performance here. It's not rememorable nor rewardable, but it fits the film. The moral of lying is totally obvious and it just doesn't match up to the brilliant Se7en. Sutherland is annoying as the sniper, and I don't like the guy in real life. He really seems like a d-bag. The writing is stingy and misplaced at times. This could've been a half-hour shorter. The other actors are okay. Whitaker is okay. Holmes is always a letdown in every film she's in. The directing is... meh. It's entertaining, but heavily flawed. Worth a rent, not a buy.
This movie actually surprised me.The plot seemed dull to me when i read the summary.The movie was fabulous.Of course,Colin Ferell plays a believable new yorker.Kiefer sutherland also stars in this movie making a short appearance.Overall,from the beginning, the excitement increases while the story gets more interesting and questionable.I would suggest that you spend your money on this entertaining movie.
