Playing It Cool plays it safe

A high-concept script and likeable cast (including Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan) fail to make this movie anything more than a low-wattage romcom.

Big-screen police procedurals are dead

A substance-abusing cop, a serial killer, a snowy small town, religious occult mumbo-jumbo. And yet The Calling is a theatrical release, and not an HBO or Netflix TV show.
