UntraceablefusesSawwithThe Netin a perverse yet moralistic story about a psychopath who broadcasts acts of torture over the internet--all to better reveal the twisted underbelly of the American public, who hasten the victims' deaths simply by looking at the website. FBI agent Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane, her mature-sexy mojo tamped down but still simmering in the corners of her eyes and the nape of her neck) launches a cyberhunt for the killer, only to find herself and her team caught up in his murderous scheme. It's hard to make tapping on a keyboard and staring at a computer screen exciting, butUntraceabledoes its best by making Marsh and her cybercrimebusting partner (Colin Hanks,King Kong) rattle off cascades of jaunty techno-jargon and do impressive bits of long-distance surveillance. The movie aims for the audience that flocked to see Ashley Judd in thrillers likeKiss the GirlsandDouble Jeopardy, but it's hard to say if fans of Lane's romantic fare like Under the Tuscan Sun or Must Like Dogs will enjoy the queasy violence. Nonetheless, the cast--including Mary Beth Hurt (The World According to Garp) as Marsh's mother--does a solid job and the movie clips along at an aggressive pace, maintaining tension throughout. --Bret Fetzer

When Untraceable was first released in the cinema, I'm sure a lot of people thought that this was just another "gorno" Saw rip off. In some senses it is, but in others it gives us something much more intelligent rather than blood and guts. It portrays the true darker side of the internet for which I fear and know there are websites that thrive of the death and torture of others. I'm not saying these sites kill but they capitalise off the dead and that's just as bad as these people who view and enjoy …
