Diane Lane is all you have to say. Critics are morons. This is a must see movie (by jessie-39)
We start all of our reviews with the following information. My wife and I have seen nearly 100 movies per year for the past 15 years. Recently, we were honored by receiving lifetime movie passes to any movie any time at no cost! So we can see whatever we want whenever we want. The point of this is that CRITICS count for ZERO. Your local critics or the national critics like Ebert are really no different than you or me. The only difference is that they get to write about the movie and are forced to see hundreds of movies whether they want to or not.Therefore, it is our belief that if you get <more>
your monies worth for two hours of enjoyment that is good enough for us! We NEVER EVER listen or read the critics. We only care about our friends and those who we know like the same things as us. Well enough about that.This is our 6th movie of the year. Diane Lane is just perfect as usual. She is one of our treasured actors. In this movie she does it all with her acting. No makeup needed, no sex, just a fantastic exciting nail biting movie. We love her and everything she does including being married to Josh Brolin and having James Brolin and Barbra Streisand as her in laws. She has been a great actressess since she was what 6? A wonderful nearly two hours of pure excitement and a bit frightening. We loved it and love Diane. The supporting cast was equal to the task.
We Have A Mentally Disturbed Generation Of Film Goers! (by sataft-2)
First of all, even with a scant few trivial character actions that were a tad bit questionable, this film is absolutely - EXCELLENT! How can I say that? Well my wife and I usually get through our bag of popcorn within the first quarter of a film. This time, however, when the film ended we had almost a half bag left - uneaten.No, it wasn't disgust from anything depicted in the film, it was simply that the film grabbed our attention and virtually never let go.Now, who am I? Well, I am a scientist and my wife is a British midwife. Yes, we are computer competent and that may be a key element. <more>
We are also in our sixties - that may also be another key element.However, it is my opinion that most of the reviews written here with the bare exception of the first one , were written by a generation that doesn't really know what terror is. They have been raised by so much simulated on screen violence and fake blood, that virtually nothing scares them anymore.However again, as a technical consultant, I have traveled to over 30 countries and worked in some brutal and godforsaken areas and witnessed incredible brutality.Trust me people, there are very scary things and situation in the real world and this film reveals, quite brilliantly, the rapid evolution of one of them within our own society.For those of you who were not a "bit" frightened, what the hell film did you view?
An awesome thriller. Totally bad-ass. Highly recommended. (by oreo-junkie)
Man I loved this movie. You know when you go to a movie that you know relatively little about it and are not really expecting much. Then you go and it turns out to be a really awesome movie. That was our experience with "Untraceable" the new thriller starring Oscar Nominee Diane Lane The Perfect Storm, Unfaithful, Under The Tuscan Sun .Directed by Gregory Hoblit Fracture, Primal Fear, 24 this thriller hits all the right bases. The atmosphere is palpable and grim and is very much like "Se7en". The acting is uniformly great. Diane Lane is bad-ass in this movie and carries <more>
the film on her shoulders. Her performance is of top quality.The action scenes and the death scenes are very exciting and more than a little effective. The whole film comes off as very very professional and well made and the story is very engrossing and thought-provoking. My wife and I are still talking about this movie. It's awesome. Check it out! 10/10.
This movie starts out good and ends out good. The ending was okay, they could of made it better. There were 1 or 2 moments in this movie that made you jump but thats it. The acting was awesome, the story line was perfect, the direction was perfect to. The reason why I didn't give it a 10/10 is because there were a few parts that dragged. That didn't stop the suspense! The movie was very smart. I love all the technology and how smart the killer is. Its so cool to watch all the stuff they do and how fast they can see where, and what the killer is doing. I would recommend this movie for <more>
sure. Overall, this movie deserves at least a 6. Warning: There is a scene in the movie where they show someone actually shoot their brains out.
Untreacable is the thriller I have been searching for! (by moviesaccordingtodes)
Amazing, Amazing movie! This is the first good thriller I have seen in a very long time. The acting was fantastic; this movie was overflowing with well respected actors and actresses like Diane Lane, Peter Lewis, Billy Burke, and Colin Hanks. The plot was intelligent and original. It was suitable for the times we are currently living in. There is now a new type of crime, crimes committed over the internet. This is one of the first movies to be released that deals with murder by way of computer. It was horrifying to watch and to think about but I suppose it can happen and we, as a society <more>
living in the times that we do, should be made aware of.I was on the edge of my seat for a good portion of the movie. It was a mystery for about half of the movie but then they just flat out tell you who the killer is, which surprised me very much. It changed the entire mood of the film. It went from trying to figure out who the killer is to trying to catch him before he got you first. The ending was excellent. It ended quickly; all of a sudden it was over. But I liked it like that because it was shocking and then it was over. The ending was brilliant; I would have it no other way.
It's too bad this film is being hailed as "The Silence of the Lambs for the technological age" because it does it an injustice by setting inaccurate expectations. Untraceable is not as intricately plotted as SOTL, nor does it have such deeply memorable characters few movies do! . That said, its fast-moving plot winds computer technology, the Internet, and society's fascination with serial killers and voyeurism into an edge-of-your-seat thriller that delivers.If you want to see blood, gore and guts close up and personal for the entire movie, stick with Saw, Hostel and the <more>
like. If you find those movies too long on gore and too short on plot, you will probably like Untraceable.
Diane Lane and a strong supporting cast make up for a "been there-done that" crime drama. The story contains a few original twists as well as a few serious implausibilities. Nevertheless, the direction, pace, and performances, especially Lane's and Bill Burke's, draw you in and by the abrupt conclusion, you are on the edge of your chair. Burke and Lane, as rival investigators, develop an interesting chemistry that builds through the film and is never compromised. Joseph Cross gives a creepy, effective performance as the deranged techno-killer. The fact that the story gives <more>
him such amazing capability to the point that you occasionally start rolling your eyes should in no way deter from his acting.All in all, nicely packaged if somewhat contrived; The story hinges on the fact that this "wunderkind" killer can continually crack every computer in his way, stay one step ahead of the law, and continue to capture victims for his morbid shows without skipping a beat. All that IS hard to believe, yet "Untraceable" was still satisfying entertainment.
That is the one word I will tell you perfectly sums up and describes my opinions towards this awesome film and it's bogus reception. Untraceable was a suspenseful thriller with great action, fun death strategies, and wonderful acting, that has a ridiculous amount of unappreciative reviews and hate aimed at it in all the areas that a lot of people have no problems with in other movies.Diane Lane was a great actress in this film. As I have said, the performances are excellent, and she of course gives the best and she made the movie totally believable and enjoyable. While there were of <more>
course flaws, I found the story line and the movie itself to be great entertainment. I found myself yelling at the screen and telling the people in the film what to do, and I am not that interested in a film unless it manages to get my adrenaline up, which I find as a positive factor in few cases whilst viewing a movie.There were things I found predictable, and of course the film gets a little out of hand at times, which as I said, it's not flawless, but it wasn't meant to be, and most of the time I was so interested in the movie that I wasn't making any presumptions or criticizing the faults. This was a wonderful film, that is under appreciated and if you haven't seen it, I recommend you do if you are capable of being lenient on these sorts of films.
I would say Hoblit's best film to date. He is very careful to let the film build slowly and he never goes for the cheap scare.Diane Lane is tremendous as always, she can do no wrong. Burke and Hanks are solid supporting cast. The cinematography is excellent. I was surprised at how well the film balanced the thriller and drama beats. Someone after the movie said this was the thinking-man's SAW and I would have to agree.Also Joseph Cross delivered an effectively creepy performance as the killer. The score by Christopher Young does not disappoint. He remains one of the best composers <more>
