    Phone Booth is a no-holds-barred, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that is "The Godfather" of popcorn movies. It delivers thrill after thrill while keeping a short 91 minute runtime. The best part of it and the reason it's so successful as a heart-pounding thriller is that at any given moment, someone could die. In fact, towards the end, the movie starts to partially show some kind of matter-of-fact message about the human condition; a rarity in this genre. Full Review »

    Phone Booth is original, thrilling and is Colin's best role. From the start to the end you won't look away from the screen. The movie will hook your attention even though the entire movie revolves around a phone booth ! The endless suspense and clever performances easily turned the movie into a classic thriller.
