75
A horrifying thriller, smart and tightly told, and merciless.

The Hollywood Reporter
Highly watchable, anchored sturdily by Lane's convincing performance.
67
Lane skillfully sells the tech-heavy script. But after a much-too-early reveal of the murderer's identity, the ''low battery'' signal starts to flash on this film by thriller specialist Gregory Hoblit, director of last year's far superior "Fracture."

I like the idea of a cybercrimes agent cracking cases through superior knowledge of the Internet. Marsh could be a great heroine for a continuing series. But Untraceable essentially forces its audience to identify with those who would be willing accomplices to torture and murder. To understate the point, that's not an audience-friendly approach.
50
Even worse than its hypocrisy, gratuitous homophobia and cheap proselytizing, the movie is dull.
50
The film, which has the ingredients for a thoughtful, tense thriller throws away a compelling first half so it can descend into silliness and clichés.
38
A wan version of the same old tired serial killer story, despite its updated milieu -- cyberspace.

Philadelphia Inquirer
An abhorrent cyberthriller starring a compelling Diane Lane.

Talk about your pious frauds. I've got a better way to show your disgust for Internet scum: Don't see Untraceable.

As plain awful as Untraceable is, possibly the worst thing about it is that it pretends to mean something.
0
This joyless thriller runs the gamut from unconscionable through unwatchable to unendurable.
