  • Summary: Within the FBI, there exists a division dedicated to investigating and prosecuting criminals on the internet. Welcome to the front lines of the war on cybercrime, where Special Agent Jennifer Marsh has seen it all......until now. A tech-savvy internet predator is displaying his graphic murders on his own website -- and the fate of each of his tormented captives is left in the hands of the public: the more hits his site gets, the faster his victims die. When this game of cat and mouse becomes personal, Marsh and her team must race against the clock to track down this technical mastermind who is virtually untraceable. (Screen Gems-Sony) Expand

    A horrifying thriller, smart and tightly told, and merciless.
  2. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    Unfolding like a better-than-average episode of a first-rate TV police procedural, Untraceable is a satisfying slice of solidly crafted meat-and-potatoes filmmaking.
  3. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    Even worse than its hypocrisy, gratuitous homophobia and cheap proselytizing, the movie is dull.
  4. 40
    Computer movies have come a long way since the good old days of monitors projecting vector graphics on hackers’ faces, but there are still some forehead slappers in Untraceable.
  5. An abhorrent cyberthriller starring a compelling Diane Lane.
  6. Reviewed by: Nathan Lee
    Directed by Gregory Hoblit from a screenplay by a trio (a trio!) of whomevers, Untraceable hasn't the brains of a class-act psychothriller like "The Silence of the Lambs" (though it does reprise that film's titillating homophobia); worse yet, it lacks the balls to juice up the trashy verve of the "Saw" series.
  7. 0
    By now the hypocrisy of simultaneously condemning and exploiting the audience's sadism has become so commonplace in American movies it hardly seems noteworthy.

    FBI cybercrimes division, find dodgy website that kills a cat, then a man, then another one, etc, etc. The more people log on to watch, the quicker the victim dies.
    Run of the mill thriller, few flaws here and there but nothing too bad.
    Bit of a dig at society today at the end.
    Watch the Saw films, they're much better at this sort of thing.
