Review Phone Booth became one of a number of post-9/11 films to fall victim to an increasing reluctance on the part of motion picture studios to release movies where on-screen events echo real-world tragedies...The result makes for a pleasant early-year surprise...Obviously, with a phone booth, there is claustrophobia. In addition, for most of the film, the villain is faceless - a cold, menacing voice on the other end of a phone line, playing at being God. Give Kiefer Sutherland credit for doing as much as he does with limited opportunities. Like in Steven Spielberg's Duel or John Dahl's Joy Ride, we are confronted with an implacable enemy. As time wears on, Stuart finds his range of options increasingly limited. He's a pawn in a one-sided game that may only end with his death. Phone Booth makes us care whether or not this happens.

Review "Phone Booth" is a religious fable, a show biz fable, or both. It involves a fast-talking, two-timing broadway press agent who is using the last phone booth in Manhattan (at 53rd and 8th) when he's pinned down by a sniper. The shooter seems to represent either God, demanding a confession of sins, or the filmmakers, having their revenge on publicists...The movie is essentially a morality play, and it's not a surprise to learn that Larry Cohen, the writer, came up with the idea 20 years ago--when there were still phone booths and morality plays...For the voice of his sniper, he calls on Kiefer Sutherland, who also starred in Schumacher's "The Lost Boys" (1987), "Flatliners" (1990) and "A Time to Kill" (1996) and here takes the mostly (but not quite entirely) invisible role as a very useful favor to Schumacher--because if the voice doesn't work, neither does the movie. It does.

Quotes
Jeffrey Anderson, San Francisco Examiner ...Farrell keeps up a kind of frenzied panic for the entire film...I'm not certain of his future as a Great Movie Star, but...he's off to a tremendous start.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Farrell is a dynamo...Sutherland, whose sniper role is essentially a voice on the phone, matches Farrell subtle shift for subtle shift.
Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News A tense, thought-provoking drama.
Stephen Hunter, The Washington Post ...82 New York minutes long, all of them exciting.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe Short, suspenseful, funny, and profane, the film's a throwback to the neat little B-level thrillers the entertainment industry used to crank out...
