FBI agent Jennifer Marsh is tasked with hunting down a seemingly untraceable serial killer who posts live videos of his victims on the Internet. As time runs out, the cat and mouse chase becomes more personal.
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.Written by
I've seen it all when it comes to the thrillers, the good: Se7en, the bad: 88 Minutes, the ugly: High Crimes, so Untraceable, from the trailer, I had a feeling this was going to be one of those average or less than average thrillers that I figured would be more of a rental then a theater visit. So I rented it last night and watched it, although I am getting a little sick of the "technology will destroy us all" theme(it's been shoved down our throats a lot lately with movies), it's actually still a pretty clever movie. There are a few mistakes here and there, and some of these gadgets are a little out there for the computer age, but Untraceable I would say is a little above average, at least it wasn't one of those "guess the killer... *gasp* that was the killer?!" type of movies that you can predict so well.
Jennifer Marsh is a FBI agent who does work on scamming websites, she has a beautiful daughter and her mother helps her since her husband was taken in the same line of work. One night, Jennifer comes across a website saying "killwithme.com", she goes on, there's a dead cat. But she goes on a little later, there is a man being cut and bled to death, the more viewers that watch, the faster he will die. But things get ugly when Jennifer and her co-workers are now being attacked.
Untraceable is worth the look I would say, the acting is pretty decent. The casting was alright, I do like Diane Lane, but I'm not sure if the thriller genre is where she belongs, but she makes the movie watchable. Colin Hanks, again, love him, but as a detective, throws me off a little. But some of these scenes are gruesome, we are in the age of the Hostel and Saw torture, where it seems like nothing is off limits, so I warn you that there are some scenes not for the faint of heart. Otherwise, I would say that Untraceable is the go if you want a good thriller, it's worth the look.
