Cell (15)

Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller

When a mysterious cell phone signal causes apocalyptic chaos, an artist is determined to reunite with his young son in New England.

The critical consensus

Wooden performances and by-the-numbers filmmaking turn Stephen King's intelligent novel into a rote genre exercise.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 22/08/2016

There are some intriguing ideas here but in its execution, the film is as laughable as it is frightening or provocative.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 24/08/2016

John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson are phoning it in as survivors of a crisis that turns mobile users into mindless grunts.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 25/08/2016

Cell has a decent idea at its core, but not much more.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 26/08/2016

Mobiles bring on the zombie apocalypse, but it’s not as much fun as it sounds.
