Cell

Fear thy neighbour.


Cell
Although based on a Stephen King novel, and co-written by him, this film is unlikely to join the ranks of The Shawshank Redemption or The Green Mile. At the Boston airport, a man 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, he teams with a train driver to battle the horde of murderous ’’phoners’’ as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.

97 minutes.

Tomatometer quote iconShoddily crafted and devoid of suspense, Cell squanders a capable cast and Stephen King&rquot;s once-prescient source material on a bland rehash of zombie cliches.
