The worst part about this movie is that, even though it's impossible to piece everything together logically, it's easy to see where it's going because there's nothing new here. There's a sameness to all these Japanese-turned-American retreads.
Drastically under-produced, One Missed Call is so tedious that Alexander Graham Bell would have difficulty staying awake. Those vigilant Verizon Wireless techies from the commercials would be fired for napping on the job.
Call is the first major motion picture release of 2008, in charge of setting the tone for the lengthy year to come. My friends, the future does not look promising. In fact, it feels like a swift kick to the groin.
