Great Film, Don’t Expect Horror
The movie is about a young boy who is hired to read books to an old man who’s eyes aren’t what they used to be. They end up teaching each other many unique things and form a great friendship before he passes of heart disease and the boy is left to deal with not only the grief of his friend, but that of his mother. Then he starts receiving messages from the dead man’s phone.
I’m an avid lover of Stephen King and I loved Jaeden in It so I knew I’d love this film. My main point is don’t expect this to be a horror film. It’s not. But it’s a great story filled with great acting, writing and an intriguing plot. But I think those that are expecting a horror movie are going go very disappointed. There are definitely creepy parts but there’s no gore and very few jump scares.
It’s a very unique story which is refreshing nowadays and Jaeden and Donald play their part well and have great chemistry.
A Not-So Horror Coming of Age Story, as Touching as it is Lacking
Hey, I’ll take a Stephen King adaptation any day, despite the fact that at least half of them don’t reach near the necessary heights. This time around, one is served to us by John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side”, “The Highwaymen”), and although I enjoyed it quite a lot, I have to admit it’s his second lackluster after last year’s star-studded serial killer flick “The Little Things”.
First conclusion is this, “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” only plays with some horror ideas, does not feel like a horror movie one bit, and also not a thriller, for those who expected it to be like one. This is Craig’s (Jaeden Martell, “It”) coming of age story, with the intriguing figure of Mr. Harrigan swaying it into a reasonably worth-while tale about the nature of revenge, human values, and humanity’s relationship with the era of smartphones, yes indeed. It’s set in the time when iphones were just starting to appear, which I found to be an intriguing factor. The first half of the film is held together pleasantly by the chemistry and heartfelt conversations between Craig and Mr. Harrigan, while the second half sort of drifts into another story, a potentially more scary and exciting one, but in reality a much duller and anticlimactic one. The film is kinda like the majority of Stephen King stories, little of actual horrors, and plenty of time spent building and pondering the character/s. Visually, this tale doesn’t stand out in any way, the soundtrack feels a little random or unfitting the supposed genre and tone, and the overall tone is something “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” frequently struggles with slightly. One more very commendable thing were the performances, all of them, but particularly those by Jaeden Martell and veteran Donald Sutherland, they really helped to keep the film’s spirits up.
It’s a good flick if you’re looking for a soft horror, or a coming of age story without cheese, or if you like the more touching and less scary inventions by the king of horror literature. Feels like Netflix did not believe it, releasing it with zero marketing, hiding it from front page, and releasing on Wednesday, but who says you should not believe in it? My rating: 6/10.
