The ambitions of The Call director Brad Anderson (The Machinist) may be bottom-of-a-mineshaft low, but this tale of a 911 operator (Halle Berry) attempting to save the life of a kidnapped, stuffed-in-the-trunk of a car teen (Abigail Breslin) is surprisingly good, and surprisingly gruesome, fun. Michael Eklund makes the most of the maniac role, and Breslin is a sympathetic victim, even if the most alarming thing about the movie may be seeing the girl from Little Miss Sunshine stripped down to her bra. Finally, if you’re going to watch a movie in which two people talk on the phone for most of the film, it’s not the worst thing in the world for one of the folks involved to have the face of Storm from the X-Men.
