The Call – movie review

TheCallGrade: B

I’ve been waiting to see this movie for months and it was well worth the wait. Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin both display great range as actors across a spectrum of emotions.

It can be argued that the plot is implausible; a 911 operator receiving two different calls from the victims of the same psycho doesn’t happen every day. But it isn’t impossible and no one writes stories about the serial killer not getting caught. That’s not good entertainment. One way to tell a great story is to take average people and put them in implausible situations and see how they react. That’s what we have in this movie.

The ending is one of the best I’ve seen in this genre. It was surprisingly satisfying. Totally worth the price of admission.
