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.

This movie was really good. Full of suspense and action. Halle Berry was at her best with lots of emotion. Not one sleepy moment during the whole movie in fact was on the edge of my seat the whole time. You gotta see this one.

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.
