      Movie Info

      A veteran operator for an emergency call-center, Jordan (Halle Berry) saves lives daily as part of her job, but when a young woman's frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. She decides to pack it in on the front lines and -- instead -- teach others the ropes of the high-pressure job. But when a call from a kidnapped teen (Abigail Breslin) comes in, Jordan takes charge as never before and turns the girl into a partner in helping to save her life.

        I caught this after watching Fractured by Brad Anderson. This is a film I completely forgot and now that I have seen it, I probably didn't need to watch it either. The film is built on the concept and the concept is not carefully developed. The film has potential and only clicks into gear for the finale, which is quite good. I had my problems with the pacing and the fact Berry's character is a call operator and has no issue finding the killer. Why is she in the call centre? She is better than the entire police force. This is an interesting vehicle and deserved its success in the current cinema climate. Strong cast is sadly let down by a shallow script and a strange villain. 12/10/2019

        I know a lot of people outright hate the ending of this, I didn't. It felt very out of place and was completely unrealistic, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it ruined the movie for me. That said, the first two acts are far superior to the third, and even those two aren't exactly bringing the house down. Still, The Call manages to cultivate some pretty vivid tension within the first few minutes, and the drama of the two confined environments that it primarily switches between is executed well enough.

        Pretty good thriller. Though it drags out long at the end, the scenes in the car kept me on the edge of my seat.

        The Call stars Halle Berry as Jordan, a 911 operator for LAPD, due to negligence, she accidentally caused the death of a young girl. Another emergency call got picked up and this time another girl is being captured by the same killer, it's up to Jordan to stop him. Generic but nevertheless fun to watch, Berry's performance was enough to redeem the film but the addition of Eklund was even better. It started off strong but got a bit preposterous at the end. The Call hits and missed at the same time.
