More Info:
  • Manohla Dargis

    An effectively creepy thriller about a 911 operator and a young miss in peril, The Call is a model of low-budget filmmaking.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Surprisingly good, and surprisingly gruesome, fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    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.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The Call for the most part is a tense, extreme-jeopardy thriller that delivers the intended goods.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Leah Churner

    A pastiche of classic plot devices scrounged from "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three," "The Conversation," "Blue Velvet," and dozens of other movies, the story often feels familiar, but director Anderson (The Machinist) has a such a flair for suspense that even the most jaded viewers will find themselves in a sweat.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    No one’s winning any awards for The Call. But at least the award winners know how to make it worth our while.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    A sputtering, so-so B thriller with a neat hook but very little personality.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

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

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    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.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    You’ve seen pieces of this movie in “Psycho,” “Silence of the Lambs,” and 2004’s “Cellular.” Still, the early scenes in the Hive give The Call a needed novelty: It’s a workplace drama, and the work is responding to other people’s desperate worst-case scenarios.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    All that unsavory business aside, the biggest problem with the third act is how the film discards the novelty of its own premise in order to bring its star into the action. When Berry trades her headset for a rock, it’s the bluntest metaphor imaginable for a film that’s completely lost its mind.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Rare is the thriller that goes as completely and utterly wrong as The Call does at almost precisely the one hour mark. Which is a crying shame, because for an hour, this is a riveting, by the book kidnapping.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    There’s little to differentiate this high-pitched screamer from a particularly feverish “Law and Order” rerun.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    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.

    NPR Full Review
  • Trevor Johnston

    Yet just when the movie has us in its grasp, the script falls to pieces and turns into a crass female-in-peril button-pusher whose shameless psycho-killer clichés insult the intelligence.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    The middle third of the film comprises the phone call, a tight 40 minutes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    For 91 minutes of its briskly paced 94-minute running time, the film works as a tightly wound bit of pins-and-needles storytelling. Then, Anderson lets it all unravel in a three-minute stretch of cheap writing that not only betrays the characters he worked so hard to develop, but that also thumbs its nose at any audience members with a brain.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    It buzzes along for a while, the promising plot innovations inviting suspension of disbelief, before by-the-numbers implausibility, over-the-top valor and unsavory contrivances take over and the line goes dead.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Labeling The Call as "relentlessly dumb" would be an overestimation of its intelligence. This is as brain-dead as a movie can be and it assumes the audience will have the I.Q. of a rutabaga.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    I’ll say one thing for The Call: Its ending is actually a bit of a surprise. Just when you think it couldn’t get any stupider, pow! I’ll be damned, Hollywood, you still have the power to blindside.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Brad Anderson's film is defined by an often frustrating combination of cleverness and stupidity.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Laremy Legel

    An active affront to logic, placing us in a world we firmly know doesn’t exist.
