Horrible.

I love Halle Berry and Morris Chestnut to death but they had to have some big names in order to sell this movie. Poor. Worst ending of any movie in 2013. I understand companies are trying to cut cost but it's really affecting the movie by cutting the time. Would not recommend anyone go see this movie. Interesting beggining, all down hill after that.

Quite predictable, characters make such obvious mistakes, some scenes so farfetched it's hard to suspend disbelief..ending was halfway decent though.

not a dull moment

Excellent flick....can't think of one dull moment in this movie. Reminded me a bit of Silence of the Lambs. Interesting insight into 911 call centers. Seems like a tough job that would take a special person to handle. Good job by Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. You will be entertained by this movie.

portrayal of how to treat the mentally ill

Movie kept me on the edge of my seat, but I'm disappointed in the ending. Main character was obviously mentally ill, and -- spoiler alert -- he is locked in an underground shelter to die a slow tortorous death. Yes, I understand this person had tortured and killed his victims, but would a person do this if they were mentally healthy? No. Is mental illness something someone chooses? No. It is a brain disorder. There are genetic components and usually something in their environment (like the death of sibling) that triggers it. If someone had a brain tumor that made them behave like this killer, we would not think it's OK to torture and kill him, but it's still considered acceptable and even desirable to do it to the mentally ill. I think future generations will be aghast when they look at movies like this for their treatment of people with brain disoders and how they manipulate audiences to want them tortured and killed.

The reviews were Waay off................"The Call" hit every nerve wrecking emotion in your body. It was a Excellent Action, Suspense Thriller. It keeps you on the edge of your seat with nail biting twists and turns. I recommend this movie hands down. What a great addition to filmography.
