Review: This movie starts out pretty normal, a nice happy theme and you would not know that it’s all about to go downhill. Everything starts with a call that causes Halle to retire from the operator scene. Then months later, she is training a few newbies and boom another call comes in and she has to take over, and that’s where the movie gets interesting. Now I will say this a lot of the persons in the movie, are pretty dumb; they have good intentions but, extremely dumb. Now this movie has an unexpected ending, and it shocked me as it was way out of character, but it will leave you smiling. This movie though grabs a hold of you as soon as the first call comes in and you’re hooked until the end.
