The Call

3

Halle Berry is on the line...

An excellent film that messes up the ending is almost worse than a movie that was never any good in the first place.

So it goes with Brad Anderson’s engrossing/infuriating cat-and-mouser, where Halle Berry’s 911 operator and the police rally round to track down kidnapped Abigail Breslin – who’s trapped in the boot of a maniac’s car.

Sadly the great performances, tension and ingenuity of the first two thirds give way to a final act that’s so misjudged and idiotic that it erases everything good that’s gone before.
