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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    As plain awful as Untraceable is, possibly the worst thing about it is that it pretends to mean something. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    A wan version of the same old tired serial killer story, despite its updated milieu -- cyberspace. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This joyless thriller runs the gamut from unconscionable through unwatchable to unendurable. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    An abhorrent cyberthriller starring a compelling Diane Lane. show more

    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. show more

    Highly watchable, anchored sturdily by Lane's convincing performance. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A horrifying thriller, smart and tightly told, and merciless. show more

    Even worse than its hypocrisy, gratuitous homophobia and cheap proselytizing, the movie is dull. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    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. show more

    This movie was awful! The ratings this movie received are ridiculous! I mean, come on, did you all watch it with your eyes closed or something? And can I please have the two hours of my life back that I waisted watching this movie, Mr. director! Maybe I should change careers if its this easy to make a terrible movie, and it be successful! Lets see what else, oh ya, the plot is about as thick as a sheet of notebook paper, and this movie is so predictable! I thought FBI agents were suppost to be intellegent, guess I was wrong! You know that feeling when your watching a horror movie and they fall down, or walk toward the loud noise, yes you know what I'm talking about, it gives you that "irritating" feeling the whole time! The ending is awful, it just stops! Come on Hollywood, my 5 year old nephew could have written better script! Please do not watch this movie and save your money! You will thank me! I rate this movie negative 5 stars if it would let me!

    I thought it was suspenceful and enjoyed it. Could have done a little better casting for Lane's mother.

    Diana Lane must be on the way down to appear in a picture this bad. This movie is JUNK, it should receive an oscar for worst picture of the decade. Shame on you Diana Lane!!!

    As most of the reviews state here, this movie script was tightly woven and executed well. For the most part, the movie was filled with suspense and was decently gripping. It's a good back and forth playoff between the good (law enforcement) and the bad (killer). The ONLY part that killed it was the ending. It was somewhat cheesy, seemed rushed and could have ended so much better had the writers put forth a little more thought. I left feeling as though the movie ended way too quickly. But overall, the movie was pretty good. I would give it 3 1/2 stars (on a 5 star scale).

    Held my interest from the beginning. A fast faced thrillerwith a terrific final scene. Sadly, a believable script.

    Untraceable kept you in suspension from beginning to end. Although a much to early view of the killer, Diana's performance was incredible. It was a little gruesome at times but it was definitly a good movie and i would go see it agian.

    Gory and predictable in the extreme, untraceable delivers a few tingling moments to counteract all the standard shock. The high-tech angle is something that hasn't been expored too often in the horror genre and it was good to see in this movie. So in that regard, the cyber approach was much appreciated. However, the character development was sadly lacking and for how creative the kills may have been, you found yourself without a shred of concern for anyone. Nothing is worse in a movie than when you realize the actors are "acting". Untraceable had a strong message to send about the irresponsibility and callousness of the internet community, but it was utterly lost through blood, guts, and cheap thrills. Shame.
