Storyline

When the daughter of veteran 911 call center operator Pamela (Mischa Barton), and her estranged husband Jeremy (Luke Goss), a Senior Police Officer, is kidnapped and held hostage, they are left desperate, with no choice but to follow the kidnapper's rules: send messages through dispatch for all police and fire units to scatter to remote locations throughout the city where they are met with chaos. Not knowing who or why, the one thing they do know is if they fail to discreetly collaborate with one another - they will be solely responsible for facilitating the biggest crime in the city's history. Now they must race against the clock to make the choice of their lives - save the city - or save their daughter. Written by Cinema Management Group

Operates on highly dubious logic and awful acting
18 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

When your movie is called Operator, it's best to have an actress with great acting playing the titular role. Mischa Barton does not even come close on delivering any convincing performance. However, it's not entirely on her as the plot drives in implausible loops for half the runtime, the part where fake explosions happen, and the rest is invested on strings of improbable occurrences.

In the same spirit of The Call starring Halle Berry, Pamela (Mischa Barton) is a 911 operator who is terrorized by a crime mastermind. The movies steps on every plot hole possible. Never mind that it's odd for a 911 call center to be hacked, or no one suspects anything when one of their operators is clearly in distress, it's mind-boggling that the so called plan is utterly devoid of logic and the movie continues to pretend as though it's realistic.

The overly complex scheme consists of timely event in impossible time frame, which gets worse when the movie tries to pull off more stunts. If that doesn't detach the viewer from reality, the subpar acting will. At least The Call, which has the same premise, is led by Halle Berry who gave a real effort and even that movie is still flawed. The operator has one fixed expression; mildly flabbergasted. Her reaction and action are simply too bland to be taken serious.

Luke Goss and Ving Rhames fare a bit better, perhaps because they are more familiar with action genre, although not by much and that doesn't exemplify them from mistakes too. At some points the motivation seems severely lacking. If this is about grand master plan of heist or to save a child's life, this must be the least enthusiastic police work as the lack of urgency is overwhelming.

With such faulty logic, more discern viewers would have a field day spotting the plot holes, and far from exuberant acting as though the characters know the logic is flawed, Operator's only spark is from cheap explosive and action, which don't amount to much.
