Cell (2016) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
Cell (2016) is quite possibly the worst film made in more than a decade, even worse than The Expendables. I’ve always known that movies can be good, they can be bad; but I didn’t think they could be this bad; it’s like this film was made on the lowest budget with a ton of people who knew nothing about what they were doing.
Let’s start with the camera staff, 90% of the film the camera operators couldn’t hold the camera still, then of course the film editing team couldn’t cover the splice work. The audio team was of such a quality it is as if they didn’t have anyone to cover that part of things. The script writers, oh my god they butchered this Stephen King story, it’s actually worse than the book. Last but not least, they picked a great pair of actors Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack which is what sold the film. The ending outcome of having these well established actors in this film was, I’m not sure I ever want to watch a film with them in it anymore.
Talk about a film gone completely wrong, this is a 100% flop that didn’t seem like the people making it had any concern for it going anywhere.
