Brad Anderson, the skilled genre stylist behind the cult horror favorites Session 9 (2001) and Vanishing on 7th Street (2010), directed this thriller in which a highly proficient 911 operator (Halle Berry) takes a call from a teenager (Abigail Breslin) who’s been abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund). The film lacks the thematic nuance of Anderson’s best work, but it’s expertly paced and features some sophisticated editing, which helps alleviate the corniness of the plot. Berry is all steely reserve as the operator and easily outshines the rest of the cast, which includes Michael Imperioli and Morris Chestnut.
