Editorial Reviews

A single phone call can change a man's life…or possibly end it. Colin Farrell delivers a captivating, off-the-hook performance as Stu Shepard, a self-centered New York City publicist who suddenly finds himself on the deadly end of a high-powered rifle scope. Now it's a real-time race against the clock as Stu must outwit a psychotic sniper in a frantic scramble from phone booth to freedom. Directed by Joel Schumacher, this groundbreaking "tightly-made thriller" (Sidekick Magazine) co-stars Forest Whitaker, Katie Holmes, and Kiefer Sutherland as the crazed gunman calling the shots, literally.

Customer Reviews

Colin Farrell, Forrest Whitaker, and Keifer Sutherland give great performances in this film.

I can't really say anything else about what works without giving away the whole movie (like that would be a bad thing).
The Bus
A psycho sniper rings the phone and engages him in a "look scared, or I'll shoot you" game.

...Well, I guess that isn't saying too much. Phone Booth is a suspense genre movie that is actually suspenseful! In only 88 minutes, Phone Booth managed to get me to the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Colin Farrel really displayed his ability to act. His character may not have been the perfect guy, but he still managed to make the viewer feel for him. With this movie, Kiefer Sutherland also managed to regain the top position as the scariest actor in Hollywood...with his voice alone! Joel Schumacher's directing was great. One might think having the whole movie take place in mostly a phone booth would be boring, but Joel managed to make the movie compelling and visually stimulating. The other actors were also great; although if you're a fan of Katie Holmes, she's in about two minutes of it. I would defintely recommend anyone to see, especially if the person has been hesitant about seeing thrillers due to the blatantly bad ones that have already come out, because Phone Booth delivers.

In what seems like the most unlikely premise of all, we are treated to one of the most suspenseful movies so far this year. Not many people could take a film that has 90% of it taking place in a phone booth and still make it good, but Schumaker pulls it off here. Colin Farrell really shines in this movie, and as the suspense mounts toward the film's resolution, you really feel sorry for him. The sense of hopelessness he's feeling becomes your own as you realize there's no easy way out of the situation. The only thing I have against this film is that it could have easily been made into a PG-13 film for a wider audience range with just the loss of profanity. The violence is not as full as Lord of the Rings, but every third word is profanity and that's what earned it the R rating. I understand that you're trying to show Farrell's character's mounting desperation, but it could have been toned down a bit. Still, Keifer Sutherland's calm and even-tempered tone of voice is just psychotic enough to make you cringe when your own phone rings. He's definitely on a roll with his series "24" and now this great movie.

Format: DVD
Before I watched this film, I read several reviews on it. Most of them was negative. Than I checked out the director: Joel Schumacher. I found few mediocre films by him but at the same time I found few of my favorites: The Lost Boys (1987), Flatliners (1990), Falling Down (1993), The Client (1994). Based on this research I had no choice but to watch this film.
Main character Stu (Colin Farrell at his best performance) is one of this fake New Yorkers: some publicist, dressed in a fake coat of bogus fame and unexciting BIG contacts. He stops by at the phone booth to make his regular call to another women, the one which doesn't know that he is married... As soon as he hangs up? A phone call... A phone call for him... A phone call by a sniper. He has to play by the sniper's rules, or someone will die.
A thriller? An action? A psychological drama? I would say all of it at the same time... but much more. Did I want to know what will happen next? Yes! Did this film make me think? Yes!
From my point of view, this film mostly about art of listening. We often prejudge situations and people. But we forget to listen, to understand and hear the meaning of simple clues which might save our own life. And Forest Whitaker as Captain Ramey did this part very well.
On the other hand it gives us a slight idea how one second can change our life forever. And it does every single day.
The ending made me disappointed but I can't give this film less than A- grade. I've seen better, but not as many as you might think.

Format: DVD
I do remember the previews of this film and I did not think it looked that great. I could not imagine that a movie that centered on a single location such as a guy trapped in a phone booth could create so many interesting plot points but I was wrong! This movie plays out kind of like the psychology of a revenge type guy who is snooping around people's dirty laundry. When he finds this one guy Stuart he really gets him to the wall. Stuart answers a random ringing phone at a phone booth one afternoon and suddenly he is blackmailed by a sniper! Really good acting but you cannot go wrong because a main police officer in this movie is played by Forest Whitaker. A good thriller that is worth of multiple viewings because of its simplicity and exciting scenes.

Format: DVD
Many found that Phone Booth was boring, badly scripted, and so on. I myself (agreeing with many critics) found it to be EXTREMELY tenseful and engrossing. Once that phone call started, my heart was pounding like a beast. Joel Schumacher, the director of many films (St. Elmo's Fire, Batman & Robin), definately had a hard task of making a movie all around one phone booth. But he suceeded in bringing tons of intense moments and so forth. Colin Ferrell does a fine job of bringing the greedy Stu Shepard to life. Forest Whitaker, the cop who is dealing with the situation, did a great job in the realism of his character. He was fun to watch. Kiefer Sutherland, the sniper on the phone, was also great even though you just hear his voice.
Phone Booth is the story of a man, Stu Shepard, who's a tricky PR guy and a cheating husband. When he stops in a Manhattan phone booth to call his second love (girl he's cheating with), he gets a call from an odd man. He then realizes, thanks to a red dot, that he's being pinned in the booth my a sniper. After a little inconvenice with hookers and their manager, the cops are all around, while Stu is stuck on the phone with a maniac.
Phone Booth was a great film and finely crafted. Rent this movie. I dont really think the DVD is worth the money (only a commentary). This was one tense film. Enjoy
