THE CALL Review.Delivers Little In The End

THE CALL Movie Review
By: MattInRC

THE CALL is at first richly rewarding but turns preposterous in the end.


WWE Studios is making a name for itself. A full-fledged production studio known mostly for its wrestling franchise, WWE has suddenly appeared boasting top-name talent and two films this year alone. And while our review for Dead Man Down wasn't entirely positive, Halle Berry's THE CALL seeks to change perceptions by wanting to produce a gripping and intense thriller. Unfortunately, it fails to stick out a consistent effort at the end and instead delivers one of the most disappointing third acts in recent memory.


At first, the plot sounds sounds intriguing: After a home invasion call to LAPD 911 operator Jordan Turner (Halle Berry, Die Another Day) turns tragic, the killer returns to claim another victim, forcing a distraught Jordan back to work. In fact, the first 60 minutes of this film excels with almost every effort it makes, seamlessly balancing tension, humor, and a quality backstory while creating an absolutely enthralling villian courtesy of serial killer Michael Foster (Michael Eklund, 88 Minutes). He delves into the deep end of psychosis by stalking, capturing, and torturing young women that look suspiciously like his dead sister, including his newest prize Casey (Abigail Breslin, Zombieland). It's only after Jordan's re-entry from training new recruits to active duty that any hope of finding the girl is resurrected. But as we ride along with the trunk-bound Casey (who strangely isn't tied up until near film's end), the third act goes completely off-track as Jordan leaves the call center to actively search for the killer. Yes, a person with no military or police experience, and with no weapon other than her bushy hair goes off into the wilderness to do something no other LAPD officer can apparently do. The result is one of the most disappointing and disconnected endings I've seen.


Director Brad Anderson (The Machinists) certainly has an eye for creating close-quarter shots that bring us face to face with terror. He and Writer Richard D'Ovidio (Thirteen Ghosts) craft a visual palette early on with all the precision of a master artist, drawing us in with relatable human emotions of closure, regret, and a sense of duty when we see terrible things happen to good people. When Jordan fails, we want to help her cop boyfriend Officer Phillips (Morris Chestnut, Ladder 49) to ease her pain. But it's that third act which breaks any credibility which The Call had quickly built. This film didn't need the horror plot to muddy the excellent drama that had been presented. Yet, that's exactly what we get, as Jordan and Michael meet in a sequence that seems more appropriate for the torture porn of the Saw movies than this production. It's almost as if two completely separate films were somehow Frankenstein-ed together into a train wreck that comes out swinging but runs out of steam at the worst possible time Intensity in a film can be a double edged sword - too much of it can leave some underlying aspects of the film on the side of the road. In the case of The Call, several characters disappear before their real value can be utilized. Beyond our trio, everyone else is nothing more than distracting wallpaper, especially Phillips, who should have exercised a more aggressive role at the end.

What begins as a riveting, intense thriller degrades into an Act 3 that's as preposterous and absurd as anything I've seen this year. As I stood outside with a colleague afterwards, we tried without hope to understand the disaster we witnessed unfold. That's probably how many moviegoers will react after seeing The Call, a film with so much on its side but which delivers so little in the end. The Call is rated R for nudity, language, and scenes of intense situations and has a runtime of 90 minutes.

Theo James Cast In Divergent

"Golden Boy" star Theo James is hopping aboard the "Divergent" train as Dauntless faction member Four, according to studio Summit Entertainment.

The 28-year-old actor, probably best known for his memorable (albeit short-lived) turn as Mr. Pamuk on "Downtown Abbey," nabbed the lead role opposite "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley, who will play heroine Beatrice "Tris" Prior.

"Divergent" is based on the 2012 best-selling young-adult novel by Veronica Roth — a dystopian thriller in which society has been divided into five factions, each upholding a particular virtue. Upon their 16th birthday, citizens are tested to determine their place. When Tris' result comes back inconclusive (a.k.a Divergent), she leave her family's faction and joins up with the brave (or, some would say reckless) Dauntless faction. Tobias "Four" Eaton is one of the faction's instructors, and the two share an undeniable chemistry.

'Divergent' Star Shailene Woodley On Four Casting: 'No Feminine Actors Please' The casting process has been a long one (not dissimilar to the search for "The Hunger Games" hottie Peeta, a few years back), with actors like Alex Pettyfer and Jeremy Irvine rumored to be in the running.

When MTV News spoke to Woodley about the casting earlier this year, she had a very distinct idea of what the actor playing Four should bring to the role.

"The thing about Four is that he has to be a man. No feminine actors, please," she said. "You cannot walk in that room in pretty little boots and pretend you're a man. I'm sorry. You need to walk in there, and you need to not have muscles that look good and not actually work. There have been a few guys that have this power about them. It's a natural masculine power that some people have and some people don't. There's nothing good or bad or wrong or right about it. This character needs to be extremely masculine, and his eyes need to scream vulnerability and sensitivity. It's really hard to find in a dude, especially a dude who can act."

In addition to Woodley and James, Variety reported yesterday that Jai Courtney has been cast in the role of Dauntless leader Eric, while Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort have also reportedly secured roles. Kate Winslet is also said to be eyeing a role. "Divergent" will open in theaters March 21, 2014.

Poster For VENUS AND SERENA

Check out the official poster for VENUS AND SERENA, exclusively on Moviefone:

Available on demand April 4, 2013 and opening theatrically May 10, 2013.

VENUS AND SERENA takes an unfiltered look into the remarkable lives of the greatest sister-act professional tennis has ever seen. In a sport where they were not welcomed, the indomitable Williams sisters faced the opposition with grace and courage not only breaking new ground for female and African American athletes everywhere, but dominating the women's game for over a decade. The film tells the inspiring story of how these two women, against all odds, but the help of visionary parents, made it to the top.

VENUS AND SERENA also explores the struggle of these two aging superstars during the 2011 tennis season as they battle life and career-threatening health problems. In VENUS AND SERENA we gain unprecedented access into the sisters' lives - both in the spotlight - and behind closed doors, and we watch as they draw their greatest strengths from one another to overcome countless adversities.

The film includes interviews with Bill Clinton, Billie Jean King, John McEnroe, Arnon Milchan, Gay Telese, Anna Wintour among others.

RED LEATHER JACKET FROM NEW MOVIE THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES ON DISPLAY AT ARCLIGHT CINEMAS IN HOLLYWOOD AND UP FOR AUCTION ONLINE


RED LEATHER JACKET FROM NEW MOVIE THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES ON DISPLAY AT ARCLIGHT CINEMAS IN HOLLYWOOD AND UP FOR AUCTION ONLINE.


Proceeds to benefit Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California.


One of this spring’s most highly anticipated movie releases, The Place Beyond the Pines, starring Academy Award nominees Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, and Eva Mendes, will have an original object from the production auctioned off online to benefit Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California. The auction item is a red leather motorcycle jacket, as seen on Mr. Gosling in the film as part of his portrayal of high-wire motorcycle stunt performer Luke.

The auction will be hosted by Profiles in History at www.profilesinhistory.com, starting Friday, March 29th, which is also the day that Focus Features releases the Derek Cianfrance-directed movie in exclusive engagements in New York City, at Landmark Theatres’ Sunshine Cinema and AMC Theatres’ Lincoln Square, and Los Angeles, at Landmark Theatres’ The Landmark and the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. The ArcLight Cinemas is currently displaying the actual jacket on-site, until Friday, April 5th. The auction will end Monday, April 8th. Proceeds from the auction will go to help inspire hope, enrich lives and build a better future for children with special needs in Southern California.



The jacket (pictured above on Mr. Gosling in-character in a scene from the film) is a Firstgear red leather motorcycle jacket with snap pockets at the front, black corduroy at the collar, zipper vents at both front and back with black leather in the vent, elastic at both cuffs and bottom, and zips to close. The lining from the auction item has been removed because of wear from extensive location filming of sequences in which Luke rides on his motorcycle.

Following its initial exclusive engagements, Focus will release The Place Beyond the Pines in select cities on Friday, April 5th; and will expand the release to theaters across the country on Friday, April 12th. MPAA-rated “R,” The Place Beyond the Pines is the daring new movie from the director of Blue Valentine, a sweeping emotional drama powerfully exploring the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons. Also starring Rose Byrne, Mahershala Ali, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen, Ben Mendelsohn, and Ray Liotta, the Focus Features and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment presentation of an Electric City Entertainment production in association with Verisimilitude is scripted by Mr. Cianfrance, Ben Coccio, and Darius Marder, from a story by Mr. Cianfrance and Mr. Coccio.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Review. Has Some Truly Funny Moments

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Review
By: MattInRC

Does the magician turf war comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone entertain, or does it perform an early vanishing act?


The flashback comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone goes far beyond telling a tale of magicians competing for Vegas glory: it's a film that could have been made 20 years ago, a fact which might put off audiences who've been trained to accept lesser quality. In our age of raunch, nudity, and an almost-anything-goes kind of approach, things have gotten a bit...well...predictable. One can only see so many nude male body parts on a screen, or be witness to yet another sexual-religious reference before those and the dozens of other low-brow employments (with only the most basic storytelling included) become boring as well. Thus it's nice to see when a film can be funny, well-cast, AND tell a decent story without needing to settle for something beneath itself.


Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell, 40 Year Old Virgin) and his long-time friend Anton Marvelton (Steve Buschemi, The Big Lebowski) have been Vegas standards for the past decade. Tormented in their 80's youths by bullies and rejected by society, the two learn to perform magic after Burt's latchkey mother gives him a magician's set for his birthday. Packed inside the box is a tape of the magician Rance Holloway (Alan Arkin, Argo) who makes an instant impression on the kids. As the years go by, stardom sees Anton and Burt perform to packed crowds every evening, filling their wallets and nursing their fragile egos. Unfortunately, complacency soon sets in for Wonderstone, who's more interested in sleeping with his female audience members than innovating his show, frustrating Anton and hotel owner Doug Munny (James Gandolfini, The Sopranos). Their new assistant Jane (Olivia Wilde, Tron: Legacy) is an aspiring magician herself, but Burt only sees her body and seeks ways to land her.


At the same time, street magician/endurance performer Steve Grey (Jim Carrey, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) seeks to take over Wonderstone's turf with his over-the-top masocistic stunts including sleeping on hot coals and cutting his face. But Doug sees the performer as something fresh and new, while Wonderstone's diminishing crowds force Anton to come up with a new stunt. When that goes horribly wrong, the team splits up, leaving Wonderstone homeless and without his best friend. Faced with a future of performances in front of the elderly, Burt comes face to face with his childhood hero Holloway, who teaches the hair-sprayed diva the real meaning of magic. Together, the duo reunite with Anton and Jane to produce their biggest stunt yet: making an entire audience disappear.

Veteran television director Don Scardino applies a simple plan to his film - let the actors sell the script by Horrible Bosses writer Jonathon Goldstein. Scardino gives Carell and Carey a lot of room to roam while keeping them focused on those parts of comedy they do best; the result is a collective return to old comedic roots, with Carell playing pitch-perfect arrogance and Carey supplying all the imposing physical comedy one actor can muster. Wilde isn't given much to do, but we'll let that pass due to her amazing screen presence (yes, she's hot), and Buschemi's straight man is enjoyable for the short time we see him. Frankly, another 10 minutes of him in Act 3 wouldn't have hurt. Gandolfini is equally good as the hotel owner/dad who can't remember the age of his own son. But in the end, it's the performance of Arkin that seals the deal. I'm continually amazed by how much of a scene stealer he is, lighting up the screen every time Scardino gets him in. It's a deep cast who brings the right combination of comedy and can also bring a little dramatics when necessary. In many ways, Wonderstone proves that good comedy trumps raunch almost every time; the question is, will moviegoers agree?

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has some truly funny moments, some of which might go down as the best of 2013. Beyond that, its basic premise of arrogance, lesson-learning, and redemption has been seen before. But along with a healthy dose of sentimentality, that's the reason why it works. Its ability to stay in the Spring theater rotation will be determined entirely upon whether audiences believe that there's still a place in their wallets for such a mix. If that answer is a positive, Wonderstone could see a long a successful run; a negative response, and it's a quick disappearing act and perhaps another nail in the coffin for Clean Comedy. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is rated PG-13 for sexual situations and language and has a runtime of 100 minutes.
