Efficient little thriller wastes no time. Science teacher Jessica Martin (Basinger) is kidnapped and locked in a grungy attic. Head bad guy Ethan (Statham) smashes the wall phone but Jessica hears a dial tone and manages to connect the wires and randomly gets the cell phone of beach bum Ryan (Evans), who naturally thinks it's a prank. Finally convinced, Ryan also figures out if he loses the call, the lady is lost, which leads to a number of realistic obstacles as he races to warn her husband and son, who are also targets. Veteran actor Macy plays veteran LAPD desk sergeant Mooney, who's about to retire when this case lands in his lap. The story is by Larry Cohen, who was also into phones as the screenwriter of 2002's "Phone Booth."
