  • The Call might not be a classic for the ages, but for a Friday night? For a movie to take people out of themselves? And to make them marvel at the viewing experience that just happened to them? This one is hard to beat. show more

  • The action starts with a bang, but deteriorates and grows more absurd as the story strays farther from the LAPD call center. show more

  • The film is at once shamelessly transparent, manipulative, and far-fetched, and impossibly suspenseful. You'll want to take a shower afterward - that's how icky you'll feel. show more
