Lane is an imaginative actress, every bit as good as Jodie Foster, and the film is clothed in a dark and chilly atmosphere that Hoblit constructs with some skill.
February 29, 2008
This new variation on the theme isn't bad, in a gruesome and horrible way, and features a strong performance from Diane Lane as an FBI agent.
February 29, 2008
On the surface the film is a solid thriller, but there's more thought here than in the average serial killer flick.
February 28, 2008
Feels as if it's been patched together using 'auto-fill' screenwriting software.
February 28, 2008
You know something ain't kosher when a movie purporting to offer a critique of sadistic voyeurism opens with a hand-rubbing scene of kitten abuse.
January 25, 2008
Morally duplicitous torture porn: how else to describe Untraceable, a bleak, rain-washed horror thriller.
January 25, 2008
This joyless thriller runs the gamut from unconscionable through unwatchable to unendurable. It's also unfathomable that two talented people, Diane Lane and her director, Gregory Hoblit, got themselves involved in such an unpromising enterprise.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable feels sleazy and gratuitous.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable demonstrates, once again, how unnecessary it is for audiences actually to understand technical jargon.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable really is disgraceable.
January 25, 2008
As plain awful as Untraceable is, possibly the worst thing about it is that it pretends to mean something.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable isn't unwatchable, but it's a pretty miserable experience, from a director who knows better.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable often seems to go out of its way to tip off what's coming, so that it's hard to tell whether the film's writers are lazy, clumsy or just painfully obvious.
January 25, 2008
From its obvious foreshadowing to Marsh's big PowerPoint presentation of the killer's cause-and-effect, Untraceable is a mite too traceable to get under the skin.
January 25, 2008
The movie chides us for being a sick voyeuristic society, hungry for the sight of violence. The purity of this moral stance is somewhat clouded by the movie's habit of staging sick violent acts.
January 25, 2008
Untraceable essentially forces its audience to identify with those who would be willing accomplices to torture and murder.
January 25, 2008
A diverting police procedural.
January 25, 2008
The film teases and unnerves for 100 minutes with scenes of cold brutality. Then in a rush to the end, it tries to make it all better, or at least make it more complicated.
