Plot: Detective Hazel Micallef hasn't had much to worry about in the sleepy town of Port Dundas until a string of gruesome murders in the surrounding countryside brings her face to face with a serial killer driven by a higher calling. Runtime: mins Release Date: 02 Aug 2014
I have tended to avoid serial killer movies for the last few years. Sometimes they're just too creepy. However, The Calling was quite different. Main character, Hazel, is not a perky young detective with a full life ahead of her. Instead, she does have many challenges which I believe are in a way a consequence of living in a tiny, bleak weathered town with few opportunities. Not to mention, she has had back surgery which I know destroys many people because of the excruciating pain. On top of that, the people she works for are not exactly intelligent. The good news is that she does not <more>
care nor does it stop her from doing her job.She cracks a case that even I was astonished about. The killer has based his killings on a most unusual plan - one that flabbergasted me. I usually know who the killer is when the character appears the first time on the scene. Which I did know him when I saw him in this movie. But the motive was quite, quite different.It's on Neflix. Watch it - it's a very good film. The dialogue could be better. But it was written to represent the culture of that area, so it was true to form.
I am not sure what the other reviews were about? It is a slow movie but as it should be. I cannot speak for the director but my take on this movie is that it was well directed with superb casting. The atmosphere and locations were brilliant. The pacing excellent and the content relevant. The actors were superb especially Sarandon and the killer. My only reservations being that, this should have been a TV series. You had these wonderful flawed characters that could have had brilliant back stories, which would have made for excellent intellectual viewing! Susan Sarandon's character had to <more>
have had riveting experiences to create her final flawed current state. Alcoholism, Drug Taking, Loss of child, Topher Grace's homosexuality and the police force's response, Donald Sutherland's emotional disturbance, Sarandon's mother's guilt that created Sarandon's instability , the killer, too much to list, all their histories would have been memorizing! These characters should have been developed more but I doubt it could have been done as a movie. What a waste!
I was rooting for the Serial Killer in the end. (by nick-1265)
Although we as viewers had to fill in many gaps this movie is well worth a watch. Made a refreshing change from the usual serial killer plot. In any other movie the outcomes of certain scenes would have been easily predictable. Basically it's about an aspect of the Bible that was never committed to written text and a man driven by love who seeks to correct a societal injustice which resulted in the death of someone very close to him. The serial killer was far removed from the usual Hollywood stereotype to the extent that in one of the final scenes the outcome was completely unpredictable <more>
while at the same time completely understandable. It reminded me loosely in the end of Medicine Man.
