When Jordan, 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.
Jordan Turner, a 911 operator receives a call during a break-in but loses the call. Six months later she received another call this time involving the same killer and kidnapped a girl. She received the call from the kidnapped girl and tried to save her and this time she is intent on not losing another young woman to a psychotic killer.
The movie is another generic and ordinary thriller and very predictable; nothing is fresh but nonetheless entertaining. There are scenes that are really good but most we have seen it before. Most of the scenes take place either in the 911 call center (“the hive”) or inside of the truck of a car where the kidnapped girl is held.
Recommend see this movie when it comes out as rental or on TV. On the acting department, all three main characters especially Halle Berry turned it noteworthy acting.
The Call is adapted from the novel written by Richard D’Ovidio with Nicole D’Ovidio and Jon Bokenkamp. It stars Halle Berry Jordan Turner, Abigail Breslin as the kidnapped teenager, Michael Eklund as the kidnapper and directed by Brad Anderson.
