Decent and suspenseful, till Colin Farrell confesses to his wife, then down hill

This was a decent film, until Colin Farrell confesses to his wife. Colin Farrell did a fine job in the movie. I blame it on the screenwriters. After he confesses to his wife to his wife of his infidelity it was down hill. And to top it off we get Kiefer Sutherland saying if he doesn't behave he'll be back, or some such nonsense. Wow, so Kiefer Sutherland is the new equalizer. He will kill people so they behave morally. Then we get a scene zooming out into space, satellite, and then a phone call, another phone booth. Maybe waiting for a sequel.

Here's a suggestion. Write something intelligent. Intelligent! I know there is intelligence out there. Write it. Then produce it into a film. Not some half baked nonsense.

I give this 3 stars for Colin Farrell's performance. The writing failed. All the other actors here were crap. Forest Whitaker is crap. What the hell was that sub plot with Whitaker manhandling one of his men? Katie Holmes – crap. Radha Mitchell – crap. The whores and pimp were decent, at least they were entertaining. The way the pimp went down was good.

Words can't describe how much awful this movie is

PROS: COLIN FARREL isn't a bad actor, nor is he bad to look at. But in all seriousness, the acting wasn't too bad. Most of the time the characters were stagnant, even the person on the phone, but they were more good than bad on average. That's why it's a pro.

CONS: The movie was wicked boring. When you have a one location thriller it becomes vital that you find something in that one location that could help influence the depth of the story. I felt that the director trapped himself in a corner when he chose this location. He ended up relying too heavily on character development to make the story scary, but that was a poor decision. It was a questionable choice because the actors were mediocre, and a movie that relies so heavily on acting (like the director anticipated) needs to have that something special to propel the movie forward. Since they didn't have this the movie fell flat. To summarize this bit, you had a man standing in a box with nothing really captivating or alluring to keep you watching and the only thing you did have to watch was OK actors waiting to say their lines. If that snippet wasn't enough, the ending was horrific. Not in like horror meaning scary, like horror meaning omg this is awful. The end sort of takes everything that was done in the movie and throws it away, in a garbage can, that then goes to the landfill, then gets squished and incinerated. That was how bad the end was, and that was all to top off a boring movie with a man standing talking with a stranger for 2 hours.

Masterpiece thriller

Loved it!

...Even after I re-watched it third time. Obviously they don't give Oscars for this type of genre, but if a person were to receive one without even making a single appearance in the film then it'd be TheCaller...just for his voice acting which held his weight and tremendous personality.
