Call Of The Wild

Rock! Shock! Pop!
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Call Of The Wild remains a fun watch, a great mix of action, adventure, romance and drama that’s beautifully shot and which makes excellent use of it’s a-list cast.

  • Conclusion: This 1935 filming of The Call of the Wild is no classic, but Fox treats it like one with this impressively sharp-looking Blu-ray. Fans of Clark Gable and Jack London should make an effort to see this at some point.

Slant Magazine
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Though in every other respect an unremarkable Hollywood thriller, Brad Anderson's The Call is distinguished by one rather audacious aesthetic decision: Opting to shoot the film's many confined spaces using small, lightweight digital cameras like the 10lb Phantom Flex, Anderson and TV-trained DP Tom...

  • Excerpt: At its peak, The Call is thematically gripping, avoiding exploitative measures as Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) frantically works to locate trapped teenager Casey Wilson (Abigail Breslin), whom is locked inside an unknown vehicle with a deranged killer in the driver’s seat.

High-Def Digest
28 June 2013
  • Conclusion: 'The Call' is a solid film that works on almost every level. Berry and Breslin turn in amazing performances and the suspense is high throughout the entire film. If it wasn't for those final moments in the movie, this would have been a perfect film.

  • Excerpt: I’ve been in the situation where I haven’t had to call 911 that often in my life.  I see this as a good thing since, invariably; calling 911 isn’t ever a good thing. It’s like going to the doctor’s office where at best they tell you that everything’s fine.

The Call

Cinema Blend
15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: If you've seen the trailer for The Call , you probably think you know what to expect, namely a predictable abduction thriller centering on Halle Berry's frantic but focused 911 operator. That's all I expected, but The Call scoffed at my predictable narrative presumption at every turn.
