  • Phone Booth is a great thriller movie that I thoroughly enjoyed
  • I think the running length was good at just over 80 minutes, some films like this tend to drag on and you start to lose focus, but this film expertly allows you to get involved in the film and not zone out occasionally
  • Overall, anyone interested in thrillers will enjoy this film and I’d definitely recommend it

      Phone Booth is a great thriller movie that I thoroughly enjoyed. The intensity in brings is enough to keep you interested right from start to finish.

      I think the running length was good at just over 80 minutes, some films like this tend to drag on and you start to lose focus, but this film expertly allows you to get involved in the film and not zone out occasionally.

      I tend to like films that are located in just one place throughout (127 Hours,


      Buried) and this was no different. The movie brings a great amount of intensity and the dialogue really allows you to feel the fear that Stuart Shepard does.

      It’s very well-written, the main character Stuart is explained well and the mysterious shooter stays…well mysterious throughout. You’re always asking more questions about him than you did ten minutes ago, and to me that’s important as it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

      A lot of the credit deserves to go to Joel Schumacher ...


      • as he does a brilliant job directing. Each twist that occurs in the plot is so delicately placed that it manages to maximise any emotion that you have for the characters.

        Colin Farrell does a great job playing the main character. He spends the entire film inside a phone booth but still manages to progress the character and bring out every fearful emotion that he has.

        At the end of the film his character’s a totally different person and he really makes you

        believe that, and even thought his character isn’t particularly likeable viewers can relate to him and sympathise.

        Kiefer Sutherland, although only present in voice (Except at the end) does a great job. You never see his character, but you really, really hate him because of how arrogant he is. I was really hoping for him to get his comeuppance.

        Overall, anyone interested in thrillers will enjoy this film and I’d definitely recommend it. It a good length and easy to watch, whilst keeping you intrigued throughout.
