You have got to rent “The Call” (2013). Trust me. Not enough? Great camerawork. Still? OK. So you’ve got all these pervy TV detective shows, like “SVU” and “Without a Trace,” right? Well, what if we looked at one of these abduction cases from the 9-1-1 operator’s point of view? Something new, right? After that, the movie follows the same basic premise that all these things follow. Protagonist Halle Berry has some history with the perp. Tense phone calls, dude slips away, yada, yada, yada. Until the end. And that, dear friend, is why you’ve got to rent “The Call.”
