The Call, starring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin in the leading roles, is a mostly suspenseful and effective thriller, which keeps up the suspense until the end, but loses its plausibility in return. A known problem with a lot of movies dealing with serial killers.
The German version and the US version differ right at the end, which doesn't change the ending itself; it rather adds a minor thing without major consequences. The additional scene can also be found in the bonus features of the US Blu-ray, just with slightly different shots than in the German version. The same alternative "alternative ending" is also included in the bonus features of the German version again.
With or without alteration at the end, The Call is definitely worth watching for fans of thrillers.
The German version of The Call contains 1 additional scene and is 17 seconds longer than the US version.
The logos differ in the two versions; the opening credits are longer in the German version.
GV: 88:13 | US: 87:53
After Casey and Jordan have locked Michael up in the cell, the end credits start rolling in the US version (beginning with "Unit Production Manager"). In the German version, the names of the actresses and the title are separately displayed before. Additionally, in-between these displays, we see Jordan and Casey emerging from the hole and Jordan making an emergency call, whereupon a woman answers the phone.
