Great Buildup, but Weak Ending

The Call had a very good build up. The 911 call center scenes were fascinating. The highway chase and the 911 call with the girl in the car was very intense. However, you knew the movie would end badly with Halle Berry driving alone out to the maniac's former house. The ending was just too easy with Halle Berry saying "It's already done!"

That was the ending?

I was disappointed! The previews looked so thrilling and suspenseful. There were times that the kidnapped victim could have escaped! Holly Berry is great actress, but they could have chosen a better wig for her. The movie could have been better.

One movie that I did not fall asleep watching!

Seriously...I have this "wacky" thing going on. If I see a move at the theater and it is loud and chaotic, I DO fall asleep. Example: James Bond Movies, High-speed chase scenes, etc....It's like my mind shuts off because of the inability to follow the action and I go to sleep. The Call was very good. It moved along well, building suspense without being chaotic. I really liked this movie, but I did not love it. The reason I did not LOVE it is because once "Jordan" (Halle Berry) got involved physically, it became unbelievable to me. I'm not sure how they could have made it different though..it did "work" for the pace of the plot. I was not diappointed with the ending, but I was left with a desire to see more...to have the characters DO more. All in all, I would say it is worth seeing for sure. That this is a good movie for most ages and genders (not kids). I learned a few great tips about what to do in a bad situation & what really happens behind the scenes of a 911 call.
