Underrated

That is the one word I will tell you perfectly sums up and describes my opinions towards this awesome film and it's bogus reception. Untraceable was a suspenseful thriller with great action, fun death strategies, and wonderful acting, that has a ridiculous amount of unappreciative reviews and hate aimed at it in all the areas that a lot of people have no problems with in other movies.

Diane Lane was a great actress in this film. As I have said, the performances are excellent, and she of course gives the best and she made the movie totally believable and enjoyable. While there were of course flaws, I found the story line and the movie itself to be great entertainment. I found myself yelling at the screen and telling the people in the film what to do, and I am not that interested in a film unless it manages to get my adrenaline up, which I find as a positive factor in few cases whilst viewing a movie.

There were things I found predictable, and of course the film gets a little out of hand at times, which as I said, it's not flawless, but it wasn't meant to be, and most of the time I was so interested in the movie that I wasn't making any presumptions or criticizing the faults. This was a wonderful film, that is under appreciated and if you haven't seen it, I recommend you do if you are capable of being lenient on these sorts of films.

Untreacable is the thriller I have been searching for!

Amazing, Amazing movie! This is the first good thriller I have seen in a very long time. The acting was fantastic; this movie was overflowing with well respected actors and actresses like Diane Lane, Peter Lewis, Billy Burke, and Colin Hanks. The plot was intelligent and original. It was suitable for the times we are currently living in. There is now a new type of crime, crimes committed over the internet. This is one of the first movies to be released that deals with murder by way of computer. It was horrifying to watch and to think about but I suppose it can happen and we, as a society living in the times that we do, should be made aware of.

I was on the edge of my seat for a good portion of the movie. It was a mystery for about half of the movie but then they just flat out tell you who the killer is, which surprised me very much. It changed the entire mood of the film. It went from trying to figure out who the killer is to trying to catch him before he got you first. The ending was excellent. It ended quickly; all of a sudden it was over. But I liked it like that because it was shocking and then it was over. The ending was brilliant; I would have it no other way.

Serial killer algorithm

I am always amazed at how inventive serial killers are in movies. In reality serial killers use fairly unimaginative methods in their crimes, and get away with them mostly through sheer luck. Even when they taunt the police with a note, they more often than not reveal a challenged level of literacy.

But in movies, the planning and engineering skills of the average serial killer are on a par with putting a man on the moon. "Untraceable" is a case in point.

Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane), an FBI agent involved in detecting cybercrime discovers a serial killer using an Internet site to set up his victims. The film has an unpleasant premise in that the murders only happen if viewers log on, which they do despite pleas not to from the authorities. The film posits a very jaundiced view of society, becoming somewhat preachy on the subject.

Much of what happens though is straight out of the Serial Killer Movie Manual, especially the head FBI guy taking a while to get on board with Jennifer's warnings.

A single-mother back-story and a quirky offsider with victim written all over him help fill out the space between the credits. One break from the formula is that the murders all involve guys and aren't sexual in nature, a point of difference with 99 per cent of serial killer movies.

Usually the most watchable part of this kind of thing is the detection element, and in this case the tracking sequences are the highlights of the movie.

The ending is definitely drawn from the manual as the cops close in on the killer - you hardly need to watch the screen to know how it ends.

As long as you don't expect a "Se7en", or a "Silence of the Lambs", "Untraceable" is not the worst serial killer thriller, however, it does take itself just a little too seriously - no wonder the critics thought its 'message' was hypocritical.
