Based on the Stephen King novel,
doesn't manage to cover all of the scars of its troubled production in director Tod Williams's finished article. But it's slickly made and worth the watch. It starts out like a different sort of zombie movie, with its mindless mayhem triggered not by the usual global pandemic, but by a mysterious cellphone signal. A cautionary tale of phone dependency then mutates into something even weird, as stricken humans start flocking and migrating like birds on some avian pilgrimage to God knows where. John Cusack's graphic novelist is caught up in the mayhem as he tries to get to his family in New Hampshire with the help of train operator Samuel L Jackson. During a duller, more difficult second half, it's easy not to care. There's nothing wrong with a film that makes your brain hurt a bit, but
is maybe a touch too enigmatic for its own good at times.
A mysterious signal is transmitted to every mobile phone in the world, causing those who hear it to turn into bloodthirsty maniacs. A writer who was unaffected by the transmission bands together with a few other survivors to track down his family and unlock the mystery behind the crisis. Sci-fi thriller based on Stephen King's novel, starring John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson.
