Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Call

The call is a movie based on a veteran 911 operator named Jordan Turner who receives a mysterious phone call from a girl named Leah Templeton who is fearing for her life because a man who she doesn't know broke into her house and kidnapped her. Jordan advises Leah to go upstairs and hide with the phone by her side, only to find out the line gets disconnected. Without much thought Jordan calls Leah back and ends up revealing Leah's hiding spot to the killer. Weeks pass and Jordan finds out that Leah has been murdered. She becomes emotionally distressed and wants nothing to do with her job because she feels guilty for the death of Leah. Months later Jordan begins working as a trainer for 911 operators, only this time to receive a mysterious call from a girl named Casey whose been kidnapped from a mall parking lot. Casey was able to use a disposable phone and because the phone was disposable, Jordan was not able to trace the call to find the exact location of where the kidnapper is taking Casey.

Best part of story, including ending: What I enjoyed about the movie is its ability to keep your attention all the way through. The anticipation of wanting to know what is going to happen next keeps you engaged.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene of the movie is when the main character of the movie Jordan finds the man responsible of kidnapping Casey.

Opinion about the main character: What I like about the main character is her willingness to help the abducted girl and find the man responsible of murdering another girl from her past that she was not able to save.
