USA / English
"A ringing phone has to be answered. "Stuart Shepard finds himself trapped in a phone booth, pinned down by an extortionist's sniper rifle.
When a phone rings...
Director Joel Schumacher preserves his reputation with a script by Larry
Cohen about personal morals and hopefully the truth providing some kind of
redemption. This is a white knuckle nerve wrecker about a self-serving
publicist(Colin Farrell)making the mistake of his life by answering a public
telephone. On the other end of the phone is a self empowered mad man(Kiefer
Sutherland) inflicting demands on the fast talking, fast thinking publicity
dealer who just happened to be walking by the phone booth he passes every
day. The mystery voice on the phone demands the publicist to stay in the
phone booth until he tells his wife(Radha Mitchell)and the TV watching
public of his cheating, lying and making use of others. Of course behind the
demanding voice is a sharpshooter that is not afraid to pull the trigger.
The senior officer on the scene(Forest Whitaker)tries to make sense of the
situation while fighting back thoughts of his own past personal problems. At
least 90% of this thriller is made up of witty, threatening and revealing
banter between Farrell and Sutherland. And talk about a clever twist to end
this flick. Also of note in the cast are: Katie Holmes, Richard T. Jones and
Paula Jai Parker. Think twice about answering that ringing
