Synopsis: Sleazy public relations man Stuart Shepard picks up the wrong payphone one day and finds himself held captive by a sniper.

Review: Some said Colin Farrell couldn’t carry an entire single-scene movie, but I disagree. Through Joel Schumacher’s skilled direction and Colin Farrell’s solid and believable acting (the guy is Irish and his New York accent is flawless!) this movie carries itself effortlessly through it’s 91 minutes. I found this movie to be well-paced and the story line unique enough to be interesting, yet believable.

This is Farrell’s second collaboration with Schumacher. Their first film together was Tigerland (2000), which jumpstarted Farrell’s career in Hollywood. They have proved to be a good team. Farrell’s performance is helped along by a strong supporting cast, including Forest Whitaker as a police Captain trying not to cause a scandal, Radha Mitchell and Katie Holmes as the two women Farrell must choose between, and the chilling vocal’s of Kiefer Sutherland.

Overall this movie is worth watching.
