Excerpt: As the internet becomes more and more ingratiated into our daily lives, there’s no doubt that both good and bad things will come out of it. Just yesterday, I lost connectivity for a few hours and I felt like I was missing out on something (I wasn’t, but it felt that way).
Excerpt: All concept and no substance, Untraceable is unlikeable. Preying on modern day fears of the Internet and rampant technology use, the film does little else than put a few graphic kills on screen to shock.
Conclusion: Fans of suspense movies who don't mind just a bit of gross-out imagery and with the ability to let slip by a few laughable moments will probably enjoy Untraceable just enough to have a good time at the movies. The story and the film's visuals are each strong enough to carry the picture.
Conclusion: 'Untraceable' is a troubling film. It purports to be a diatribe against the exploitation of violence masquerading as a thriller, but it's pretty exploitative on its own (albeit well made). This Blu-ray is very good, however, with nice video and audio and plenty of extras.
Excerpt: Films about serial killers always walk a fine line between using grisly violence to talk about the darker side of human nature, and exploiting bloodshed for entertainment. But it's the rare movie that ends up agreeing with the killer.
