The CALL - Movie Review
An emergency operator receives a desperate call from a kidnapped teen, and races to locate the young victim while facing a terrifying killer from her own past in this thriller from director Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Session 9). Abigail Breslin and Halle Berry star in a film penned by Richard D'Ovidio (Exit Wounds, Thir13en Ghosts). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Okay, my husband wanted to see this ONLY because Halle Berry was in it. I wanted to see it because...well I got a thing for Morris Chestnut. But what I didn't expect was how intense this movie would be. It started off with an hair raising beginning with a teen girl being abducted out of her home and the 911 operator (Halle) hearing his voice as he disconnected the call. It didn't stop after that. You had enough time to get attached to the characters - all of them. Halle gave the 2nd victum some great advice to try to save her life. It was seriously crazy and a nail biting experience. Let's just say the ending was just what I would've wanted it to be, but a bit of a nice surprise at the same time. We gave this movie a whopping 4 out of 5 fingernails.
