The Call (2013)

I love Halle Berry, and it is not my love for her that I say this movie is awesome. The suspense kept me reeled in and on the edge of my seat. The events in this movie can actually happen in reality, and The Call made me think about life and what I would do in the event if I was kidnapped.

Director Brad Anderson and writer Richard D’Ovidio work really well. I will give this movie a four out of five stars. Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) is a 911 phone operator, and she had a breakdown after not being able to help one of her callers. She then resigned from being a phone call operator and started training new phone call operators and giving them tours/run throughs of what a usual day is like in the 911 call center field.

Jordan needs to help one of her new recruits on a phone call and realizes that it is the same killer from her past that made her go into shut-down mode. Jordan then pulls herself together and put all her efforts into saving this young teenage girl, Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) who has been abducted from a shopping mall. There is so much more that I can write about this story but to cut it short. It is an event that can happen to anyone, and I believe that all young girls and older people alike should watch this movie. It will make you think differently. I certainly did, and I am definitely more aware of my surroundings. Question - is it better to get a phone with a contract opposed to a no contract phone, in the event one may be faced with this situation, once again folks, you have to watch the movie to know what I am talking about.

Actors and actresses did a fantastic job as well as the director, getting close shots of their face showing their expressions and nervousness. Really good job guys. I love the way this movie ended, won’t give it away but that psycho killer deserved what he got, and it is not death or jail – are you thinking???

Synopsis:

When a veteran 911 operator takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life.
