Of course we're sending our kids to the school run by Stacy Keach they'll learn valuable lessons like how to haggle with a whore, stop a hangover, and mustache management.

My fool proof system for horror films works again. If the poster is just simply the main actors with text...the movie will be bad. Even worse is when it's a close up of their faces. Only reason I watched this was because I read the book. Ho hum.

Good cast. John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson & Isabelle Fuhrman, but this has the STUPIDEST premise ever conceived for a zombie apocalypse. Hive mind telepathic zombies. Some preachy dialog. Group nightmares. Asinine stupidity. Basically, really awful writing. Sometimes spooky but overwhelmingly idiotic. It might have made some sense if he was suffering from a psychotic break & had lost his mind completely. Jackson's quote: "I don't like this flocking thing at all" seems pretty accurate.

Enjoyable "zombie" film; more of a plague film really, is elevated by the conviction brought by its fine cast; Cusack is a solid and likable hero, and Jackson provides a welcome return to his earlier droll, hangdog performances. Genuinely scary and thrilling at times, flavoured by King's typically bizarre and surreal sense of humour; particularly love the sick joke of the finale! An unexpected good time to be had here.

A collection of bad acting (from an unforutunately solid cast), poor directorial choices, and the dark side of Stephen King tropes, Cell is on the wrong side of King adaptations. It feels almost like a parody of the zombie genre, while trying to add new twists that don't work on a sci-fi or horror level. It's actually horrible, and not just a bad King flick. Skip it.

I enjoyed Cell the novel far more than Cell the film. I believe Cell the film answered its cellphone at precisely the wrong time. As a consequence it lost much of its humanity.

stephen king returns to his usual habit of ruining his books with mediocre screenplay adaptations. the social commentary, as well as any connection to the protagonists is completely lost (pun intended), furthermore any character complexity is traded in for the sake of supposedly "big" names. in the novel, tom was a small, chubby, gay man. here we get samuel l. jackson ("hell no, i ain't playin' no gay man!"). you see where this is going. why they changed the ending also evades me completely.

You have to wonder if the producers were hoping people would be scared to use their cell phones to warn their friends not to see the movie. But yeah, one of King's worst novels in recent history makes a pretty dull movie. The ending might have worked if they'd set it up more, as it is it just feels like an outdated and vaguely reactionary jumble of zombie movie cliches.

As a guy who frequently watches shoestring budget B-movies, I can't complain too much here. This one has some decent zombie (sort of) action going on and Jackson and Cusack both have my respect as actors. Still, this is an almost universally crapped on movie and it kind of deserves it. The whole signal thing was under-explored, it was just a little too slow, and the ending was a real piece of garbage.

Absolute garbage with garbage performances turned in by all. Cusack is just this side of Nic Cage with his shitty choices as he isn't really charming (which helps Jackson avoid it, even though he is just as guilty). Someone tell Tod he lost his D somewhere as well.

Not sure why this was so bashed by critics. It's an adaptation of a Stephen King novel and is a decent sci-fi action/drama. It's not great by any means but is totally watchable. Not to mention it features the talent of John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson.

Not a good film but it's a far more interesting use of zombies than we usually get, ending got a smile.

Isabelle Fuhrman is fine in this. The rest of the cast feels like they really don't want to be there and don't give a shit about making this movie. The screenplay is also really tired, cliched, and mostly nonsensical, and doesn't really have anything to do with the book other than the basic introductory premise.

This is a bad film. You should watch 1408 which stars the same 2 leads and is a mush better horror film.

This is a bad movie. Stephen King is a hack. There I said it. Just really bad writing where things just happen in the plot "because". The threat suddenly turns mystical because...Stephen King.

You will not regret at all seeing that one. Good relation between characters and thriller and mystery enough to stick you to the TV.
