Mei, a young girl whose memory holds a priceless numerical code, finds herself pursued by the Triads, the Russian mob, and corrupt NYC cops. Coming to her aid is an ex-cage fighter whose life was destroyed by the gangsters on Mei's trail.
When his mentor is taken captive by a disgraced Arab sheik, a killer-for-hire is forced into action. His mission: kill three members of Britain's elite Special Air Service responsible for the death of his sons.
A young man receives a call on his cellular phone from a woman who says she's been kidnapped, and thinks she's going to be killed soon, along with her husband and son who the kidnappers have gone after next. The catch? She doesn't know where she is... and his cell phone battery might go dead soon. Written by
Chris Evans did his own car stunts. Before production began, he was trained for five weeks at a Los Angeles stunt school. Most of the stunts are done by the actors themselves, also. See more »
When Jessica Martin clicks the wires together to make a phone call, she first has wires apart and then tapped them together to make contact for very brief seconds. This is contrary to how pulse dialing telephone systems work. In real life, you'd have to do the opposite. The wires should make contact, and then, break contact very rapidly for the number you wish to dial. See more »
Mom, will you still be a science teacher when I get into high school?
Hmm... You never know. Why?
'Cause I think it'd be kind of weird to have your mom as a teacher.

Some action film fans might be more forgiving than me when it comes to clichés and 'dedication to the task' at the expense of probability and realism. But to put it short: Will Beinbrink's 'heroic' security guard really annoyed me. When he drove against the traffic (in his security car - as an ironic, yet idiotic gimmick) to pursue some child kidnappers and endangering dozens of lives, I really thought he deserved to get killed in a frontal crash. Unfortunately that did not happen.
As if that wasn't enough, he continues to run all sorts of mindless, unnecessary risks throughout the film - a film that is riddled with unmotivated action sequences that we have simply seen too many times both before and after this film. As an action movie "Final Call" certainly hasn't stood the test of time... And it did not reward my hope of a more sophisticated plot in any way.
4 stars are inevitable for a film with a budget and a cast like this one. But that doesn't mean it's worth watching. Only recommended for fans of the participating actors.
