I had read mixed reviews on this, but 4 of us decided to go, anyway. We were so glad we had ignored the negative reviews. There were some flaws in parts of the movie, but we were all captured by the action from a few minutes into the movie and the tension never let go! Halle Berry is good. Abigail Breslin is good. The male psychopath was good. We did leave with some unanswered questions which could have better been answered in the movie, but all it did for us was to make for interesting speculation over dinner. As we left the theater, several people were having reactions similar to ours.
If I had any criticism, it would have been for the directing. A couple of scenes needed some fleshing out, but the criticism is not strong enough to keep me from recommending this movie. If you like intense, GO! (Not for kids or early adolescents!)

I thought The Call was great. It grabbed my attention from the beginning until the end. Yes, there were a few predictable scenes, but there is a reason why scenes are predictable...they work!

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!

Based on the trailer, I was afraid it was going to be a movie that Halle Berry should not be in, but I still decided to see it. I was pleasantly surprised. The movie leaves you on the edge of your seat, and at one point, I actually cried. The movie kinda makes you piece some things together yourself, but I loved it. The person I went to see it with was really against it at first, but left saying 'that was a pretty good movie.' Go see if you have the chance.

Terrific movie from beginning to end.
Had my oldest granddaughter with me, age 14 and it was a very informative lesson about how quickly things can turn bad.
Good lesson for all of us.
Halle Berry played an excellent roll in this movie.
I'm a retired County employee and I've toured our local 911. It takes special people to sit there and take all the calls all day long, not knowing what is going to come across your line.
Life and death situations and also the prank calls...they have to be ready for anything and keep their cool as they help whoever is on the opposite end of the call.
I think this is a "must see" movie for everyone.
