    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.

    An expertly crafted thriller that Hitchcock would be proud of and the movie's rapid pace never slows.

    Phone Booth has thrill after thrill, a menacing Kiefer Sutherland as a sniper and a load of twists.

    One of the most intense psychological thrillers of 2003, Colin Farrell rules in this movie.

    At only 84 minutes, Phone Booth's brevity turns out to be its only saving grace.

    Schumacher's depictions of street life are cartoonishly ludicrous and riddled with cliches -- a pair of garish hookers, for instance, can't be excused simply because one is played with engaging vigor by Paula Jai Parker.
  3. The result is a movie that combines a seriousness of purpose with an impish delight in craft, in a way Hitchcock would have appreciated.
