Phone Booth

Your life is on the line.

What do you do when you hear a ringing public phone? You know it's a wrong number, but instinct forces you to pick it up. Set entirely within and around the confines of a New York City phone booth, Joel Schumacher's Phone Booth follows a slick media consultant (Farrell) who is trapped after being told by a caller – a serial killer with a sniper rifle – that he'll be shot dead if he hangs up.

This interesting thriller is well played out on the streets of New York when a serial killer holds a man hostage by threatening to kill people around him with a sniper rifle. Although many parts of the tale are clichéd, Farrell does a brilliant job at playing a man with secrets that is ultimately the hero of this tale.

Great acting by Colin Farrell, Kiefer Sutherland and an exceptional Forest Whitaker who are brought together by director Joel Schumacher. Schumacher does a wonderful job at using the scenery of New York but one does wonder if this movie would have also made a great stage play.

Both the video and audio are of exceptional quality that is presented in 16:9 widescreen for that true movie experience with Dolby Digital 5.1. Unfortunately the extras on this disc are rather limiting with audio commentary by Joel Schumacher and a featurette of the making of phone booth. A great popcorn movie!
