'Phone Booth'
(Colin Farrell, Katie Holmes / R / 89 mins / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: Colin Farrell plays Stu Shepard, a slick, arrogant New York City publicist who is cheating on his wife (Radha Mitchell) with Kelly (Katie Holmes). Stu's life is thrown into chaos when he picks up a ringing phone in an empty booth. The person on the other end of the line knows all about his life and threatens to kill Stu if he hangs up the phone.

Verdict: 'Phone Booth' is sharp, pin-point entertainment that wraps it up right before the single-location gimmick wears thin! Everything about 'Phone Booth' is overdone, yet it still remains an energetic stunt of a movie for sure. Preposterous, even lurid at times, but entertaining for the most part, Colin Farrell plys his part well enough, and proves he has got the grit to keep us hanging on too - as most of the movie rides on his tight performance. So, in conclusion, 'Phone Booth' is tight, tense, preposterous, but creatively entertaining!
