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!
