the call is a good chilling thriller movie stars with Halle Berry but this thriller movie is very violent and disturbing with that being said this thriller movie is only for mature audiences and parents you need to know that the call has a lot of disturbing violence that is over the top there is strong language used.

Well-made and structured thrill ride.

The Call was a definite edge-of-your-seat thrill ride from start to finish. It's about an experienced 911 operator named Jordan who receives a shocking call from a teenage girl whom unfortunately falls victim to a home invasion and kidnapping, which sadly she dies upon the serial killers wrath. Six months later, Jordan receives another familiar call from another teenage girl whom is targeted and kidnapped by the same killer. The violence in this movie isn't over the top but the intensity of the girl getting kidnapped and struggles for her survival from the sinister intentions by the serial killer definitely makes up for it. There isn't much strong language in this film, just a few uses of f**k and sh*t. There's no sex scenes except for the last 30 minutes of the film, the kidnapped girl is shown wearing a bra for several seconds. Due to the intense thematic material involving a 911 operator striving to save the life of a young girl from a deranged killer makes it a movie for older teens.

very distressing movie

I think this movie about a man who kidnaps teenage girls would be very frightening and stressful for kids. There is graphic violence (murder with a spade and screwdriver, spraying a man with petrol and lighting him up, torture (and fear of death) experienced by the victim. I was shocked that, in France, it was rated 12. This is completely unreasonable. Definitely not one for sensitive souls...

Very entretaining thriller!

The call is a good suspense film, the plot is interesting and the cast is nice. The things I didn't like about the movie was the conclusion and that the blond girls obsession of the serial killer wasn't well developped, because some details were missing. But in general is a good flick, it'll keep you really tense, but don't worry, not scary at all. It should be ok for kids 15 and up, mostly because of the tons of violence and the intensity of the movie.

Education

Great movie to tell your kids what to do if something like that was to happen. Educate them on what to do if they were in a trunk of a car and show them how signal for help. This movie can help young people.
