Storyline

Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) is an experienced 911 operator but when she makes an error in judgment and a call ends badly, Jordan is rattled and unsure if she can continue. But then teenager Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) is abducted in the back of a man's car and calls 911. And Jordan is the one called upon to use all of her experience, insights and quick thinking to help Casey escape, and not just to save Casey, but to make sure the man is brought to justice.

Goofs

At two different times in the movie, when a call is ended on what is clearly an iPhone, the "charging" sound can be heard. This sound would only be heard when the phone is plugged in to charge, and would not make that sound when a call is ended. See more »

Quotes

Brooke: A lot of times you don't know how it ends. When your units get to a scene you sign off and they take over. But, you don't know. Did they make an arrest, shoot the bad guy, did the PR live, did she die...

The Call
1 October 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie will keep you on the edge of your seats. It's definitely one of the best movies I've seen for years. Movies are having quite a hard time making a good impression on me, but this one did for sure. Only great recommendations from here.

It's really intense and it's always giving you the "What now?"-question in your head, which will make you continue watching the movie because you really just want the answer.

Great, action filled scenes with a lot of suspense, - and Halle Berry plays the leading role so great. No one could've done it the way she did.

I still want to mention, though, that you will definitely get a bit frustrated by watching this movie. I don't want to tell you why, but I'm sure you'll have the same feelings as I had when you're watching it. Enjoy!
