Verdict: On the Line

On the Line is a thriller following a radio host that is forced to play a series of games being played by a deranged caller out for revenge. It follows the radio presenter going down a line that keeps us guessing as to how far he will go.

This is a movie that plays along the lines that we have seen before. It is an entertaining concept and works to keep us guessing throughout the movie. However, despite entertaining us for most of the movie, the ending leaves a bitter taste in the month. This doesn’t take away from the acting, the performances are strong and even Mel Gibson feels like a natural part of the radio team.

Where to Watch: On the Line is available on Amazon Prime Now.

Final Thoughts On the Line is a thriller that leaves a bitter taste.
