Here's a good thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed. "The Call" with Halle Berry provides plenty of edge-of-your-seat action and thrills. The movie begins at the "Hive," the Los Angeles communications dispatch center where Jordan (Halle Berry) is a 911 communications responder. She is a calm and compassionate person who tries to keep the PR (person responding) on the phone and talking. However one case takes a toll on her.

She gets a call from a young girl who is hiding in her house because burglars are trying to enter. Jordan advises the girl to go into a room and lock the door. So she goes into her bedroom and hides underneath the bed. The man enters the room, looks under the bed but sees a lot of junk under there and she is hiding past the boxes. He finally leaves the room and goes downstairs and somehow the phone hangs up.

So Jordan redials the number and the phone rings. The burglar hears the phone ring from downstairs and comes back upstairs. He finds the girl and drags her from underneath her bed. Days later Jordan watches the news on TV and they have found a body in a wooded area. It is her.

Six months later and reeling from this experience, Jordan takes a job training new 911 responders as a way of coping. One girl who had been there only six months takes a call from a young girl named Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) who was abducted from the Fashion Place Mall in the parking lot and was thrown in the trunk of his car. Not knowing how to handle it, Jordan takes over and tries to calm the girl down. On the computers at the Hive, there is no gps location on this vehicle. So Jordan tells the girl to try several things to leave a trail where cops can get a location on her. The cops are one step behind in their trail.

Michael Eklund plays Michael Foster, the killer from the past that haunts Jordan. He is smart and leaves no prints so the cops have a hard time catching him.

"The Call" is 96 minutes long and is directed by Brad Anderson. Scenes for this movie were shot in Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Calif. and at the Burbank Town Center. It is rated R for violence, disturbing content and some language.

This movie is fast moving and has you sitting in your seat with abated breath. I would definitely recommend this movie if you like thrillers.

OVERALL RATING: A+
