Have you ever wanted to watch someone talk on the phone for an hour and a half?

If you have, then go see the new movie “Phone Booth.” Otherwise, don’t.

Colin Farrell plays Stu Shepard, a high-class prick publicist in New York who is only after money and fame. Shepard spends his days talking on his four cell phones and ordering around his gullible assistant.

However, every day he calls Pam (Katie Holmes) from the phone booth on 53rd and Eighth Street so his loving wife Kelly (Radha Mitchell) will not know of his new love interest.

What Shepard does not know is that a rooftop sniper is watching his every move. One day the sniper will call Shepard and torture him about the way he is living his life. Hence, the rest of the movie.

The suspense can only last until you realize nothing else is going to happen.

Farrell plays a good role in this movie, and the acting is believable, but that’s about it.

The overall plot and action of the movie is boring and never delivers the huge climax you’re expecting.

You’ll see Farrell in a better light in other movies, including “Daredevil,” “The Recruit” and “S.W.A.T.,” but “Phone Booth” is one that you would likely fall asleep watching.

Overall, I would not recommend this movie to anyone. It is dull and unexciting, and you would be better off saving your money.
