PRODUCED on a relatively small (by Hollywood standards) $13milllion budget, The Call sets out to deliver a mixture of drama, tension and fast-paced action.
Halle Berry (X-Men, Monster’s Ball) stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who receives a call from teenage girl Casey (Abigail Breslin), who has been kidnapped by a serial killer.
Jordan, still reeling from the shock of an earlier botched police operation, is forced to deal with the ghosts of her past as she is quickly thrown back into fielding calls following the abduction.
Faced with an ever more difficult task, Jordan throws off the shackles of the desk and desperately throws herself into investigating Casey’s kidnap before it’s too late.
Despite its limited budget, The Call has already smashed past the $60million mark at the box office in the US thanks to the strength of its script and the emotive performances of its leading ladies.
The Call (15) is out tomorrow (Fri).
