3.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, ruined by twist ending, June 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Call (DVD)
The Call is by all means a decent thriller with several moments of "oh my god! They didn't just do that!" and it is easy to get drawn into. The film centers on Jordan Turner (Halle Berry), a 911 operator who is bothered when a momentary lapse of judgement on her part leads to the death of a teenager. cut to six months later and Jordan ends up on a call with a girl kidnapped from a mall, the girl, played by Abigail Breslin is being held in the truck of a moving car by a madman. The movie follows Jordan as she attempts to save the girls life. The movie is for the most part thrilling, exciting and manages to avoid a lot of the cliches other thrillers fall into. The performances are mostly solid. The problem occurs in the last 20 minuets of the movie when all hell breaks loose and t he movie suddenly turns from a suspense thriller into a action film with Jordan making dumb decisions. I won't spoil the ending, but let's just say that you'll find yourself screaming "this is so stupid" by the end....

Overall a decent movie, but it requires a massive suspension of disbelief.
