These type of movies typically fall apart at the end, where one of the good guys turns out to be a bad guy, and they typically say something lame. The bad guys have 900 chances just to kill the hero, but they don't. It's a bad formula. Chris Evans is good though.
An over-dramatic thriller with so many fantastic coincidences and easy solutions that it is hard to care. At least it was a good commercial film for Nokia phones as it is seemingly used by everyone as they never seem to go out of power.
A humanist thriller about someone trying to do the right thing because they're the only one who can. The movie mines every drop out of a premise rooted in how shitty cell phones were prior to the iPhone which will certainly date the movie for some.
Although the film reeks of the typical action music score and fast-paced chases, there was clear, linear narrative here that was enjoyable to watch. This was made during a time when cell phones were still considered a novelty (almost), since the film uses them as a primary tool to further plot. Also, Chris Evans was barely known here, which puts him in a different light than newer films. A fun ride for sure!
