    It's one of the best films of the year.
  2. 63
    Impresses more than it entertains.
  3. 60
    Repetitive, aimless, and as frustrating as you'd imagine any two-hour music video to be.
  4. 50
    Mr. Singh may have an artist's temperament, and he shows signs of being a director

    There's so little action or suspense that this Cell isn't too likely to multiply itself into a sequel.

    A slender story that's not particularly suspenseful or involving, resulting in a movie that's a feast to the eye but not much for the intellect.
  7. Some movies make you sorry you've seen them, and The Cell is one of those. Creepy and horrific, it's a torture chamber film.

    The Cell is an intense masterpiece similar to Seven and Copycat. The movie was revolutionary and
    will thrill you for every moment of the movie. -----

    One of the best thrillers ever made. The visuals are amazing, original and the cast is star studded.

    A mind-bending thriller that is classically entertaining similar to the matrix concept. One of my faves.
