If your going to call 9/11 make sure that Halle berry his not on the phone she will get you killed. The film is about awoman working as an emergency operator must confront a killer from her past in order to save the life of a young girl in the present. This movie was a good thriller movie until the ending, I mean the ending was terrible but the movie itself is well done.

'The Call' is a severely mediocre thriller. It lacks the actual thrill. It's routine movie making all around. The portion in the middle that involves the girl being in the trunk of the kidnapper's car is where my interest peaked. After that, it keeps descending into stupidity until it reaches an irritatingly laughable ending. The killer/kidnapper/weirdo is plain goofy and he makes dumb mistakes. His character has no menace. The only plus I can give this movie is the fact that it is short and fast paced. And one could say that the unintended comedy does make the proceedings a tiny bit easier to sit through.

The Call is a solidly entertaining film with a strong performance by Halle Berry and slick direction by Brad Anderson - up until the moronic ending. It's a break-neck action film with lots of crackling suspense and a pretty scary bad guy, but the film's dumbass climax kind of ruins it. It's worth renting. 2.5/4

Halle Berry plays a 911 operator who gets a call from a sixteen year old kidnapped girl (Abigail Breslin) who’s being held in the trunk of a car. Apparently this psycho killer Michael kidnaps girls who remind him of his departed sister. His latest kidnap victim is Casey but what the killer doesn’t realize is that Jordon was in a similar situation before and this time around she will not let the killer get the better of her. There's plenty of murder and mayhem along the way as the police, led by Officer Paul Phillips (Morris Chestnut) frantically try to locate the vehicle. The psycho Michael is very believably played by Canadian actor Michael Eklund and Abigail did a great job as the victim. Edge-of-your-seat suspense that makes me almost forget the implausible plot holes.

Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) is a 911 operator assisting Leah (Evie Thompson) since somebody broke into her home. Leah was abducted as reported on the news. Jordan becomes affected after discovering the body was discovered buried naked. Six months pass by after the incident and Jordan teaches new employees. Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) gets kidnapped and calls 911. Jordana takes a call from Casey. Michael Foster (Michael Eklund) is now being chased. Direction felt Hollywood and making the viewer look dumb. Not sure why they had to reiterate the murder of Leah when in fact we already know since Jordan mentioned it twice and that we have witnessed it already. A strong star fades and fizzles after the second half until the unrealistic and unsatisfying conclusion. It was …

Well i will start this review by saying it's about damn time WWE Studios!!! Being a fan of the wrestling going;s on of the WWE since '85 or so, I as more than skeptical when I heard they were going to branch out their entertainment aspect of the business and start making movies. Being an avid movie buff, I was thinking to myself what the heck? If they have some good films I will be getting the best of both of my fave worlds...That was until i saw my very first WWE Studios produced film starring John Cena The Marine...Bleck!!! This lead to a bunch of completely horrible movies that i still sat through time and time again with hopes of seeing some of my favorite grapplers in co starring roles on the big screen. Paul Levesque aka HHH especially! Hah! His films lead the worst of the …
