R.E.S.P.E.C.T. might have been an alternative title for a movie centred largely on Berry’s doe-eyed attractions as she hunts down a young woman’s murderer. As an emergency call centre operator, Jordan (Berry) holds herself partly responsible for the tragedy and asks for re-assignment. Then another young woman calls, trapped in the boot of a car, something rings a bell, the steel magnolia re-surfaces and some serious ass is kicked. You go, girl!
The Call | Directed by Brad Anderson (USA 2013) with Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut. Starts July 11
