Cellular (DVD)

What if you received a call on your cell phone from a frantic stranger begging you to help save her life? Academy Award winner Kim Basinger stars as kidnapping victim Jessica Martin. A random wrong number on his cell phone sends Ryan (Chris Evans) into a world of deception and murder--and a race to save Jessica, a woman he knows only as the hushed, fearful voice on the other end of a tenuous cell phone connection in the action thriller Cellular.

I've yet to succumb to the temptation to own a cell phone. CELLULAR has me thinking that perhaps life is passing me by.

Jessica Martin (Kim Bassinger) lives the good life in the SoCal suburb of Brentwood - you know, where OJ lived - with her realtor husband Craig (Richard Burgi) and 11-year old son Ricky (Adam Taylor Gordon). One day, after waving Ricky off on the school bus, Jessica's home is invaded by three thugs led by Greer (Jason Statham). After shooting the housekeeper - perhaps one of the shortest bit parts in history, the intruders carry Martin off to a house in the hills (with a million $ view of the San Fernando Valley), where she's locked in the attic with a smashed phone until Craig hands over an item about which she knows nothing. Being a high school science teacher, Jessica coaxes the phone back to life and dials out by touching two wires together. Calling blindly, she manages to reach the young and irresponsible Ryan (Chris Evans) cruising the coast down by Venice Beach. After much tearful pleading, Martin convinces Ryan that her plight is real, and this launches the latter off on a day-long odyssey of chases and violence as he tries to rescue Jessica and her soon-to-be-abducted son, all the while maintaining that tenuous phone connection to the near-hysterical woman. Obviously, Ryan has never heard the old adage, "No good deed goes unpunished."

CELLULAR has everything necessary for a vicarious, nail-biting thrill ride at the movies. There's the truly vicious villain (Greer), the gorgeous damsel in distress (Jessica), and the completely engaging knight-errant (Ryan), all perfectly played by their respective actors in an ingenious plot. Then there's the delicious supporting role of William H.

Cellular is a sleeper hit. A long overdue example of a real edge-of-your-seat thriller that is well-written and well-acted. Great driving and action scenes are complemented by humor.

The story is about a carefree California youth who becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving dirty LA cops and a kidnapped family. Kim Basinger turns in a great performance as the wife and mother fighting for her life against Ethan, the leader of the corrupt cops. Played by Jason Statham (The Transporter), Ethan is a competent bad guy.

My husband and I loved this movie. It has the wake-up equivalent of black coffee.

This is one of my favorite movies in recent years. In the film, Jessica (Kim Basinger) is kidnapped and manages to click the wires on a smashed phone to place a call. She reaches beach slacker Ryan (Chris Evans) and manages to convince him that she's telling the truth and to get help. What ensues is a mad rush through downtown Los Angeles as Ryan tries desperately to assist her. The DVD has some good features on it (interviews, scene selection, etc.), and the movie overall was well made. If you are into this sort of movie, I recommend it. You will not be disappointed in the least bit.

Sometimes I watch a movie and it turns out to be far more entertaining than I thought it would be. Such is the case with CELLULAR. I had seen the ads for the film and even though it starred Kim Bassinger, I thought that the movie wasn't going to be entertaining at all. My brother had seen the movie when it came out in theatres and had enjoyed it immensely; he as especially intrigued by the "average citizen becoming a hero" angle. When I borrowed the movie from him to watch, I tried my best to put my predispositions aside and suspended my disbelief. I surprisingly found myself becoming immersed in an action-packed and suspenseful story.

CELLULAR takes places in the showy and flashy wealthy environment of Southern California. Jessica Martin (Kim Bassinger) is a high school science teacher who lives with her realtor husband and son in the L.A. suburb of Brentwood. After dropping her son off at school, Jessica's home is invaded by a gang of thugs, her housekeeper is shot, and she is kidnapped and taken hostage. The kidnappers want something her husband has and she has no idea what it is. The criminals lock her in the attic and smash the building's only phone as they plan to later kidnap both her son and her husband. Jessica must teach at a private high school because she is able to scrounge together the parts and revive them into a working telephone. She is only able to call blindly and reaches a self-absorbed, young, and immature kid named Ryan (Chris Evans) who is cruising down Venice Beach on an errand for his ex-girl friend in an attempt to win her back. At first Ryan thinks the call is a joke, but he soon becomes convinced and attempts to help Jessica as best he can.

"Cellular" has a gimmicky plot and unbelievable situations, but it's pretty darn good, so who cares?

I mean, how often does this happen...you get a call on your cellular from a woman kidnapped in an attic. She can't call anyone else, because the phone she is using is smashed, but she managed to dial your number by twisting together two wires.

You try to get the police to believe you, but you are having trouble because the battery on your cell phone dies out every time you give it to the police.

Ok, this happened to me last Friday, but for the rest of you, if you go along with it, it does hold your interest and is exciting at parts. Kim Basinger, Chris Evans and William Macy are all always fun to watch, too.

So..enjoy...and who knows, maybe after seeing it, you'll feel like it isn't safe to answer your cellular again.
