  • Gary Goldstein

    The Calling is an absorbing, solidly crafted procedural thriller with a terrific lead turn by Susan Sarandon.

  • Pete Vonder Haar

    The Calling breathes new life into a moribund genre by touching oft-ignored themes and offering a bit of introspection to go along with the obligatory slashed throats and biblical portents.

  • Melissa Maerz

    The Calling shares a little too much with atmospheric TV mysteries like "The Killing" and "Broadchurch": the hard-living female detective, the cloudy weather, the small-town existentialism.

  • David Hughes

    If TV had a Saga Channel, this intriguing, if never quite gripping, serial killer thriller would play on a loop, in between reruns of Matlock and NCIS.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    There’s a potentially fascinating series waiting to be mined here, even if it is buried beneath bland visuals and a pedestrian script on the big-screen.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Preposterous as it is, The Calling remains stubbornly suspenseful until near the end.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Suffering from its forced attempts at pseudo-religious profundity and its familiar depiction of a spiritually lost central character eventually finding salvation, The Calling is ultimately all too resistible.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    It could generously be referred to as a character study about a detective haunted by her past, and a case that forces her to confront that past in Biblical terms. It could less generously be referred to as a pseudo-spiritual thriller that tries to literalize scriptural mythos in the same bloody terms David Fincher’s Seven used to literalize the Seven Deadly Sins, only far less artfully.

  • Geoff Pevere

    Port Dundas remains snoozy and depopulated even when throats are cut and stomachs thrown to the sheepdogs, and so does the movie.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Nick Prigge

    The premise of faith-based assisted suicide as a motivating factor for a madman's killing spree is initially intriguing, but quickly revealed as solemn window dressing.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Colorful elements of “Fargo” and “Seven” blend into a bland beige in the mostly straight-to-video The Calling, a piece that almost miraculously finds a way to waste the prodigious talents of Susan Sarandon, Ellen Burstyn, and Donald Sutherland. Full Review
