Goofs

Somewhere around 1:06:38, Halle Berry's character is replaying the conversation with the victim. At some point the camera points towards the screen revealing that the duration of the call was only 22 minutes and 15 seconds, this is obviously a mistake considering they have actually been on the phone for an hour or so (The screen also says "CD-02" which could very well mean the archive only records calls in 1 hour segments and the first segment was an hour, but that is not confirmed).

Quotes

Casey Welson: Mom. Mom, you were always the perfect mother. You gave me everything that I ever wanted. And I love you. I love you so much. And I'm really sorry. Please don't ever forget me.

The Call
1 October 2013 | by 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!
