Movie – Untraceable


Sypnosis : A secret service agent, Jennifer Marsh, gets caught in a very personal and deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer who knows that people (being what they are – both curious and drawn to the dark side of things) will log onto an “untraceable” website where he conducts violent and painful murders LIVE on the net. The more people who log on and enter the website, the quicker and more violently the victim dies.

Starring : Diane Lane, Billy Burke, Colin Hanks, Joseph Cross, Mary Beth Hurt

Good thriller though certainly not a great one, in fact the plot tends to be rather predictable. And while there is a good build up in the beginning, the scriptwriters seems to have run out of ideas towards the end.

Without Diane Lane this movie would probably rate as an average thriller with a tech-savvy hook however with her strong performance I would say it rates as above average! A gruesome torture film skilfully put together Gregory Hoblit though by placing voyeurism on ‘trial’ comes across as an overkill.
