After six months working as a trainer for the training of new operators again is in a position to receive a call from a teenage girl named Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) who was abducted by an unidentified man, Michael Foster (Michael Eklund). On her is to assess the situation and do everything in order to save the kidnapped girl. Soon begins to realize that is confronts with demon from her past.

The Call was directed by acclaimed director Brad Anderson who directed great psychological thrillers such as Session 9 and The Machinist. Unlike them, The Call is quite average film which at the beginning have remarkable and exciting story but as the plot develops it becomes predictable with perhaps some unexpected twists at the end. The biggest impression left Halle Berry with her excellent acting of foolish and pathetic person who is trying to overcome the trauma of the past.

The Call is a film that will delight all those who love the fast and exciting thrillers without much grasp of the essence of what they watch.
