Untraceable (2008)



Critic Consensus: Despite Diane Lane's earnest effort, Untraceable manages to be nothing more than a run-of-the-mill thriller with a hypocritical message.

Critic Reviews for Untraceable

All Critics (151) | Top Critics (38)

For all the would-be with-it cyber/techno-speak, strip that all away, and Gregory Hoblit's film is completely stale and cliched thriller nonsense.

Full Review… | January 2, 2014

Untraceable is a thriller with a heavy moral compass which shines a bright light on internet ethics.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Untraceable boasts a respected director (Gregory Hoblit of Fracture and Primal Fear), and a popular movie star (Diane Lane) but it's still about people getting tortured to death.

Georgia Straight

Untraceable is prototype Internet conspiracy drivel, with a hackneyed plot years too late and a simple premise of good cops and innocents against sickos.

Apollo Guide

Cookie cutter police procedural with a Hostel tinge.

Cinema Sight

Neither terrifying nor inspiring.

Audience Reviews for Untraceable

Im not a big gan of the Saw type movies as one of my friends compared this too but being that i work in fraud and i see a lot of cybercrime this perked me up. Diane Lane is awesome as alwasys and it was a good plot. Not horrible as some have said but not unwatchable either.

Perhaps not quite as impressive on the second viewing of this film, due to the high number of films created around similar scenarios, the online killer has perhaps struck far too many times. Having said that this was slightly more Thriller than Horror and Diane Lane was a likeable lead, plus there was more of a believable background story than most of this genre.
