Untraceable is not a hypocritical film... Reviewers do not take in account the difference between fiction and reality - a pretty important difference to get down. So yes, I again disagree with the RT consensus: "Untraceable manages to be nothing more than a run-of-the-mill thriller with a hypocritical message." Argumentum ad populum, my friends. That anomaly aside, let's look more into the film... It's decent. It's got the whole action-like detective on the hunt thriller going for it, while it also manages to be a torture porn. Personally, I found the heat lamp scene to be a disturbing one, somewhere in the top 100 in horror history I'd say. There's a juxtaposition of an FBI official's public speech in defense of a victim and the sick curiosity (or genuine psychotics viewing in cases) of webpage viewers rapidly logging on to watch said victim. If this doesn't make sense, I suggest you read the plot, or watch the film yourself. It's not a masterpiece, but it passes as good and underrated.
