Someone is broadcasting killings live on the Internet and the more people who watch the faster they die. FBI agent Jennifer is tasked with finding the killer and when he gets to one of her friends, it becomes personal.
Diane Lane (Jennifer), Billy Burke (Det. Eric), Colin Hanks (Griffin), Joseph Cross (Owen), Mary Beth Hurt (Stella), Peter Lewis (Richard), Tyrone Giordano (Tim), Perla Haney-Jardine (Annie).
This one kicks off with a bang and along the lines of Saw, continues to thrill with each unusual killing. Broadcasting on the Internet was an interesting if not unique premise but the real clincher is that we, the viewing public on the Web, cause these poor souls to die even faster. A nice surprise is when the FBI, dealing with a cyber killer, doesn’t stop to think that maybe he can get to them in the same way.
There wasn’t a lot of character development throughout the movie but there was a nice bit of cleanup toward the end that tied things together. Energy was good between Jennifer’s frustration and stress at trying to find the killer and the killer actually killing more people and playing games with the cops. It made for a well paced film. Acting was decent with Lane and Burke providing the best performances.
Nice effects surrounding the deaths with lovely flesh, bone, and blood shots in addition to the terrifying thought of being eaten by a roto-tiller. Loved it! And again, strong reminders of Saw.
If you like tech-thrillers, mild horror, or have a voyeuristic nature at all you will likely enjoy this film.
With adult concepts, violence, and some language, save this one for older teens and above.
Untraceable is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 4 out of 5
