It looks like a dated version of a type of movie like Unfriended or Searching where the majority of the movie is based on a confined space and just unfolds in that way. This is a time when people used hand-held cell phones and pay-phones were still popular. However the story-telling, suspense build-up and story itself was just timeless. Watched this in the cinema back in 2002 and I sought this out 16 years later from this library because I remembered the experience of this movie and even after this much time had passed by, wanted to re-watch it again.

Great thriller. Colin Farrell and Kiefer Sutherland were great in this one. Good movie to kill time with.

Even though the whole movie was the main character in just one exact place, a phone booth, i did not grow bored. Very interesting.

This movie was drawn out way to long, but it was a lot of fun. Worth watching at least once. Original script, and new concept. Enjoy

Stu: [to Caller] Stay the fuck out of this!

Capt. Ramey: Who do you keep talking to on the phone?

Stu: Nobody.

Capt. Ramey: Your ah... your friend, your parent, your lover? Who?

The Caller: Careful, Stuart. Careful.

Stu: My psychiatrist.

The Caller: [laughs] Excellent! I should have thought of that.

Stu: So you'd just whack me for no particular reason?
The Caller: Oh, I've got plenty of reasons. And you keep giving me more.
