The worst movie I have seen in a loooong time! I was very close to leaving several times but figured since I couldn't get a refund to stay till the end. Kind of a nice twist to the end but everything was very predictable and very unrealistic.

A very entertaining movie. Very few special effects to occupy the mindless--just pure \"on the edge of your seat\" psychological suspense. Amazingly, no sex or nudity for an R-Rated movie, but there are some gory scenes that are not for the squeamish. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

The Call starring Hallie Barrie as the lead actress, is not a movie worth seeing. Its story line was poorly written and used a pretty basic plot. A serial killer kidnapping and murdering his victims. A pretty basic approach and used way to often. Overall, its a worthless movie and is not worth it.

Surprisingly good, and surprisingly gruesome, fun. Full Review
The action starts with a bang, but deteriorates and grows more absurd as the story strays farther from the LAPD call center. Full Review

No one’s winning any awards for The Call. But at least the award winners know how to make it worth our while. Full Review
The shoddy attention to character, plausibility and detail is particularly surprising coming from Anderson, a director of smart indie thrillers like "The Machinist," "Session 9" and "Transsiberian." He's been a gifted filmmaker with a talent for creating chilling tension through meticulous control of just these elements. Full Review

For its last third, the entire thing gets a Frankensteinian head transplant, and turns into derivative serial-killer nonsense. Full Review
