      When I first saw the trailer for the movie “The Call” it was a little before it was released, and I didn’t really pay much mind to it. Part of the reason was because a lot of the actress Halle Berry’s recent movies seem to have bombed and I wasn’t about to waste my very hard earned money on something that might turn out to be quite awful, as well as there was something about the trailer that made the movie come off as a little bit cliche. Nevertheless, one day someone else convinced me to watch it for myself since they thought that the movie was actually quite good, and I decided that I would try it since me and the person have a similar taste in movies and films, even though I did have some doubts about it. It turned out that I actually enjoyed the movie quite a bit and ended up recommending

      it to someone else.

      The first thing that I liked about the movie “The Call” is that it gives a very different viewpoint to what would have been the usual serial killer thriller or crime drama. This time the movie actually shows everything from the point of view of the 911 operator, which for some reason I’ve never really thought of. In the movie, during what seems like a fairly regular night at work, a 911 operator receives a chilling call from a young girl who claims that someone is breaking into her house. The operator, Jordan, played by the actress Halle Berry advises the girl of what to do with what seems like success for a moment. However, the call is cut off, and when Jordan finds a way to call the girl back the intruder finds the girl and Jordan is able to hear the abduction on the phone. When the same girl is

      found dead days later, it changes her life and the way she views things, especially since she blames herself in a sense for the murder. Nevertheless, when a similar call comes in some time after the girl’s death from another girl named Casey, Jordan is sure that she has been abducted by the same man who killed the first victim. Therefore, reluctant to have another person’s blood on her hands, she tries everything in her power to find and save her from the same fate.

      Another thing that I liked about this movie was the acting. While I didn’t think it was superior to quite a few of the other movies that I have watched this year, I still didn’t think that it was bad or average. As a matter of fact, I thought that the actress Abigail Breslin who played the character Casey did quite a good and believable job even though I still think that ...

      her performance could have been a little better and more creative. On the other hand, I think that Halle Berry, who didn’t do such a bad job either could still have done better for someone who is supposed to be an academy award winner. Even the actor, Michael Eklund, who played the role of the serial killer, could have done a better job too. There was absolutely nothing about his performance that made him as an actor memorable, when I think that he had many opportunities to use his role and add a charisma to his character to make him memorable and steal the show so to speak.

      The next thing I liked about the movie “The Call” was that it had some suspenseful scenes as well. For example, there was the scene where the killer had abducted the young girl and he was driving on the highway with her in the trunk of his car. I

      thought that what made that scene so suspenseful is that the girl Casey was trying everything to be noticed by motorists on the road, including spilling a can of paint that she had found in the trunk as a trail, and the thing is they were on the verge of being caught several times.

      On the other hand, there were some things that I didn’t like about the movie. The biggest one is that I thought the plot seemed to get tamer and go downhill after a while. In other words, not only did the movie become almost completely predictable, but I felt as if the ending was rushed as if whoever had written it ran out of ideas and desperately wanted to end it.

      Nevertheless, “The Call” is still one of the better suspense movies that I have seen this year, and I would recommend it to people who are fans of suspense and thriller movies.

Review is wishy-washy, going round about how average the cast performances.
Covers a little about plot and why the author likes the movie, but nothing convincing to interest the reader.

This site needs better reviews that doesn’t look like a bunch of anti-fans or fanatics writing
