Critic Reviews for Cell 213

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Cell 213 is hokum, atmospheric hokum to be sure, but hokum all the same.

June 10, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A few scary moments don't make up for the maddeningly uneven and implausible tale.

June 9, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The film's overall quality rarely rises above decent direct-to-video product, and its underlying theme...is a tad ambitious, all things considered.

December 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sometimes confusing and overwrought when it should be lean and scary, Cell 213 would perhaps fare better as a mini-series.

November 5, 2015 | Full Review…

The lawyer in cell 213 could use half a brain. He's one of the dumbest horror movie protagonists to come along in some time.

July 31, 2014 | Rating: F | Full Review…

[A] respectably-tense gene-splice of the prison-movie genre and supernatural horror.
