Top Ten Reasons Why "the Cell" is a Seriously Underrated MovieMartin_Canine "The Cell" is a 2000 fantasy scifi thriller movie by Tarsem Singh starring Jennifer Lopez, Vincent D'Onofrio and Vince Vaughn. The story is about a new and controversial technology that allows people to dive into another person's subconsciousness. In the major story it is used to dive into a serial killer's mind in order to find his latest victim that is still alive before it dies.
I think this movie is a masterpiece, but it received mixed reviews (only Roger Ebert awarded it 4 out of 4 stars, most other reviews were not as positive) and many people seem to not like it. This list collects the reasons why it is a great and underrated movie.
