About The Call
Halle Berry continues down the wasted-talent B-movie route with this ludicrous thriller. 911 operator Jordan (Berry) takes a call from a terrified young woman who fears for her life when an intruder breaks into her home. Despite her best efforts, Jordan cannot help the woman and a few days later is devastated to learn of her murder. After the incident she refuses to take calls and instead trains other operators, having been psychologically scarred by what she perceives to be her failure. When one of her trainees receives a call from Casey (Abigail Breslin), a teenager who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a car, Jordan takes over and is determined to help her. She succeeds in narrowing down Casey's location, but must find her before it is too late.
