Stories of 911 operators who save lives, or blunder and don’t save them, are a staple of the evening news. So “The Call,” about one such operator (Halle Berry) and the murder she facilitates, by accident, seems like a natural.
In this case, the murderer and the operator have a connection. Looks creepy enough. And if it seems a bit beneath the Oscar winning Berry, it’s been a long while since she had a hit.
