The Call Movie Quotes

"The Call" movie quotes follow the suspense in the film about a 911 operator who seeks redemption by trying to help a young girl kidnapped by a serial killer. The crime thriller was directed by Brad Anderson using a screenplay by Richard D'Ovidio. "The Call" was released in theaters in the United States on March 15, 2013.

In "The Call," Halle Berry portrays Jordan, a veteran 911 operator. Jordan takes a call from a young girl, Leah (Evie Thompson), who reports an intruder in her home. Jordan urges Leah to lock herself in a safe place but then the call disconnects. Upon calling back, Jordan speaks with the kidnapper and soon hears Leah being abducted. This failure to keep Leah safe weighs heavily on Jordan.

Later, 911 receives a call from a girl, Casey (Abigail Breslin), who has been abducted and locked in a trunk. Jordan and her team try to help Casey but since she's calling on a disposable cell phone, they cannot track her location. Jordan however soon discovers that the kidnapper, Michael (Michael Eklund), is the same perpitrator who kidnapped Leah before. This makes Jordan launch an all-out war to find this man who escaped her before and bring him to justice once and for all.

If "The Call" doesn't ring for you, instead check out "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, "Emperor," "Dead Man Down," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Stoker," "Phantom," "Jack and the Giant Slayer," "Dark Skies," "Snitch," "Beautiful Creatures," "Escape From Planet Earth 3D," "A Good Day to Die Hard," "Safe Haven," "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," and "Identity Thief."
