    Halle Berry is an award winning actress but she keeps making crappy movies.

  3. Yolly B says:

    Nothing fresh or new with this movie but it is full of scenes that makes keeps you at the edge of your sit and a few that makes you jump out of your sit. Agree that Halle Berry should be making memorable movies and leave this kind of movies to new actresses.

  4. Nancy W. says:

    This is another thriller that is so generic and there is really nothing new or fresh. But having said that, it is very entertaining. Halle Berry did a good job.

  5. Aaron S says:

    Halle Berry has not made one good memorable movie after winning an Oscar.

    • Clint says:

      I agree she is a Oscar winner she should be making more memorable movies. She is a great actress she should be making better movies not movies that are so generic.

  6. Meredith says:

    The movie is intense and edgy but it so predictable. It makes you cringe a bit but overall I have seen this topic or story before. There is nothing new and it is a forgettable movie. You can almost say this is s B movie.

  7. Clay K. says:

    This movie wasted my time which shows that great ideas is really rare in Hollywood this days. I went to see the movie because it stars Halle Berry and I really tried to enjoy it but there is really nothing new with the movie. I don’t understand how Halle Berry with her Oscar acting award would do such a movie.

  8. Maria says:

    I was actually surprised that I liked it. The movie had the feel of so much tension and kept me on the edge of my seat all throughout the movie. It had some few scary moments too. Liked it a lot.

  9. James B. says:

    Predictable movie but I really enjoyed it! My kind of Thriller!! The ending was close to satisfying but would change some things. Abigail Breslin is a great supporting actress

  10. Sandra K. says:

    The Call is a good enough movie to recommend for a rental. However there is a scene where the head of the dispatchers tells Halle Berry to go home. That’s when I should’ve as well, because the end reeks of stupidity.

  11. Clayton says:

    I wasn’t expecting much with this movie. I will admit that there was a good amount of action, drama, and suspense. The unrealistic parts of the movie really killed it for me. The beginning and the end of the movie was spotty, the middle was filled with suspense which was really very enjoyable.

  12. Jane says:

    Enjoyed the movie a lot. It is very well acted specially the 3 main characters. I really recommend this movie and I have recommended it to friends. They said they liked it too.

  13. Adelle says:

    Outstanding performances from Halle Berry (she is an Oscar winner afterall) and Abigail Breslin. Would definitely recommend to watch! Great story too.

  14. Patty says:

    The movie is alright and the ending was a little half baked. Nothing original in this movie, we have seen it before.
