Untraceable

Critics Consensus

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

    My memory was untraceable. Diane Lane starred in this cliche thriller about a serial killer who murders his victims through view counts on his website. Despite the strong performance from Lane, Untraceable only served as a more sophisticated version of Fear.net.

    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.

    "Untraceable" Entertaining thriller about a crazed young computer geek who becomes the deranged moderator of his own "Kill With Me" live internet feed where he displays new victims being slowly tortured to death. The more hits he gets at his site, the faster the people featured on his webcam die. This is disturbing in making us realize what depths we've sunk to in our society, and what morbid curiosities can do. I especially liked that the 40-something Diane Lane is the star as the police woman who tries to apprehend the killer. November 27,
