News & Interviews for The Call
Critic Reviews for The Call
This is a cleverly made, smartly written, totally satisfying armrest-gripper.
Just when the movie has us in its grasp, the script falls to pieces and turns into a crass female-in-peril button-pusher.
Crude as it is, The Call milks its jump scares and don't-go-down-to-the-basement tension for all they're worth. See it with a full house, if you absolutely must see it at all.
Let's call The Call what it is: high quality trash that both diminishes and is redeemed by all the talents who have deigned to bring it to life.
If you're going to watch a movie in which two people talk on the phone for most of the film, it's not the worst thing in the world for one of the folks involved to have the face of Storm from the X-Men.
Audience Reviews for The Call
Pretty good thriller. Though it drags out long at the end, the scenes in the car kept me on the edge of my seat.
A conventional thriller that doesn't try anything new but is developed in a relatively satisfying way for most of its running time - until it collapses in a ridiculous, laughable third act that only insults the viewers' intelligence and believes to be much smarter than it is.
I stopped watching on the first ten minutes when the 911 operator tells the girl to lock herself in a room and then the girl runs up the stairs. >_> I do not know which is worse, the advice or the girl.
