Antoine Fuqua directs Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke and Riley Keough in this one-location thriller where a suspended cop works a 911 call centre on the night of multiple crisis.
A remake of a Scandinavian film which isn’t as good as a throwaway Halle Berry flick which had tons more fun with the same concept. The usually dependable Gyllenhaal struggles to makes an incompetently aggressive character’s redemption believable.
