The Call

I seem to have missed this movie completely – apparently it came out early last year but I didn’t see any promotional material for it. Anyway, it features yet another unbelievably young actress who I’ve never heard of (Abigail Breslin, okay she was in Ender’s Game) and thankfully someone I do know – Halle Berry, who’s probably now really old in non-Hollywood years.

The Call is an able thriller about a 911 operator trying in real-time to help a kidnapped girl; perhaps like the 2004 flick Cellular it will become a snapshot of the technology available at the time. While there were a couple of grisly scenes, I enjoyed the movie and found the ending pretty satisfying.
