Suspense Thriller - This suspense thriller is a big showcase for its two leads, Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. While not overly graphic in its violence, this thriller is still much too intense for children. Language content is moderate.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The conclusion is silly and morally questionable, even by exploitation movie standards. It does, however, allow Anderson to do what he's good at: orchestrating dark, claustrophobic horror.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average Audiences may wind up cheering the vigilante manifesto that 'The Call' morphs into, but at some point, they'll no doubt wish it made slightly better sense.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average I'll say one thing for 'The Call': Its ending is actually a bit of a surprise. Just when you think it couldn't get any stupider, pow! I'll be damned, Hollywood, you still have the power to blindside.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 108 moviegoers:
WOW! And WOW! a second time. The first WOW! is for how great these moviegoer reviews are. Almost everyone absolutely loved "The Call." I have to say, it's one of the most intense movies I have ever seen. The second WOW! is to highlight just how badly the movie critics missed it on their review of this movie. There "Average" and "Below Average" reviews are WAY OFF. This is just another, very clear indication of how much better moviegoer reviews are for most moviegoers.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Veteran 911 Emergency Call Center operator Jordan (Halle Berry) has the kind of job that's not for the faint of heart: navigating the public's distress in order to save lives. But when a young woman's frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. Reassessing her life, Jordan wonders if perhaps she's experienced her last fraught-filled phone call. With a supportive cop (Morris Chestnut) for a boyfriend, maybe it's time to step back, enjoy life, and teach others the ins and outs of her high-pressure profession.

That lifeline to strangers isn't over yet, though. When average American teenager Casey (Abigail Breslin), is abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund), she manages to place a 911 call from the trunk of the killer's car.

Jordan, leading a group of new recruits through the massive Call Center operation, is in earshot of the call. It's an all-too familiar scenario for this experienced public servant, but before long, Casey's situation reveals itself as eerily, shockingly familiar. There's only one thing Jordan can do: take charge in a way she's never done before. She must turn Casey into a partner in helping them track down the killer, and prove that this call is Jordan's calling.
