Trivia

In the opening scene, one of the callers into the 911 centre states "I think I'm having an overdose and so is my wife" - the line made famous by Edward Sanchez, a policeman who confiscated marijuana from a suspect and then made brownies with it. He called 911 when he thought he had taken too much. See more »

Keeping it short and simple.
24 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

The Call is good solid entertainment for the first 2 acts. Until the girl is taken out of the car and into the basement, it all goes to hell. The ending makes no sense for the characters and makes me wish that I had left as soon as the hour mark hit, so I could make up my own ending. That way I wouldn't have to sit through ridiculous plot twists and generic meltdowns. Halle Berry was good but her performance in Cloud Atlas was so much better, and that is probably do to the writing and direction. Brad Anderson isn't talentless and perhaps his next film will be an improvement. But the final act just screws this movie up so much. Overall I like the film to the lowest rating I can go and still go positive but the film doesn't deserve anything higher than a 5.5/10
