I can’t… I can’t call _The Cell_ good… But it’s artistically spectacular, features one of D’Onofrio’s best roles ever, and though it has unoriginal concepts, it uses them in originally thematic ways. I can’t call _The Cell_ good… But I can tell you to watch it.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
_**Going inside the mind of a psycho**_
A child psychologist who’s adept with an innovative procedure (Jennifer Lopez) agrees to help FBI agents (Vince Vaughn and Jake Weber) by entering the mind of a comatose serial killer (Vincent D’Onofrio) in order to find clues to where his latest kidnap victim is held captive. Will they find her in time?
“The Cell” (2000) is a psychological crime drama/thriller that combines “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991) with “The Matrix” (1999) and the style of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Dracula” (1992); meanwhile the sordid elements recall “The General’s Daughter” (1999). Although the plot seems convoluted, the film is actually easy to follow and it’s a veritable feast for the eyes.
The best ‘feast’ is Jennifer in her prime. Also on the female front is Catherine Sutherland as one of the victims. The only thing that takes down my rating is the early scene showing how the sick phukk gets his jollies with female corpses. Who wants to see that? How about just hinting at it or describing it verbally?
The film runs 1 hour, 47 minutes, and was shot mostly in Southern Cal, e.g. San Diego (neurosciences facility), Los Angeles (hospital), Bakersfield (the silos), Taft & Pomona; as well as the Namib Desert (mind scenes with the boy).
It’s All In the Pictures
Forget about the plot of this movie. Forget about the fact that it is wonderfully acted by Vince Vaughn and Vincend D’Onofrio. Forget about the fact that it is one of the few movies starring Jennifer Lopez that I can stomach. Although the story may be impossible to believe and much of the dialogue seems contrived, the one and only important thing to remember when contemplating watching this movie is that it contains some of the most amazing and disturbing imagery ever put on film. It is as if Salvador Dali decided to make a crime drama. A must see for anyone seriously interested in cinematography and the use of the film cell as a canvas on which to display true works of visual art. I would have to give this movie a 9/10 for it’s amazing visual display.
Bizarre, yet interesting at the same time
I remember seeing the trailer for this movie when it was first released and it looked pretty cool. I never got the chance to see it though. When I went to Blockbuster to rent some videos, I figured I should watch it. After all I did love “Silence of the Lambs” and “Se7en”, and if you enjoyed those movies, you might get a kick out of “The Cell”. The whole story concept is very interesting. Going physically into the mind of a killer, I can’t imagine the world they live in. The acting is actually pretty decent. Jennifer Lopez is the only one I have to say that wasn’t that great, but she does a believable job. I would recommend for a scary thriller.
