We went Friday night....and what the other reviewers say is true - everyone was yelling at her, telling her what to do....we were all sitting on the edge of our seats! Halle Berry is great - it has a pretty crazy story....and the ending certainly was not predictable but YAY!

Ingenious topic! Imposing, compelling scenario, married with Halle Berry’s consummate characterization; director Brad Anderson and writer Richard D’ Ovidio open the windows to the innermost bowels, mechanisms of the 911 Emergency “hive” in Los Angeles. The sophistication of the tracking devices; frenetic cacophony, seconds culminating in success or failure; never having spent a modicum of mental muscle wondering about the operators, technicians behind the millions of emergency calls, this was eye- opening, educational, mesmerizing. Anderson and D’Ovidio illuminate a ubiquitous, unsung craft and its uncelebrated, unacknowledged, unknown heroes...

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! Halle berry does a great job of keeping you interested along with the other main characters who seem to do an excellent job of convincing you. There's a lot if emotion from crazy to sad and you'll find yourself rooting for this poor little girl throughout the whole movie. The suspense pushes this past the rest of the pack! A-plus!

Haven't seen many movies like it. Uncommon story. Halle did a great job per usual. One of the few movies I've seen with her in it where you pay very little attention to the fact that she's downright beautiful b/ the movie is so good. Original story with original plot and ending. However, I do believe they could've done better with the ending...it was a bit unrealistic w/o spoiling it for those of you who have not yet seen it.
