Within the FBI there exists a division dedicated to finding and catching criminals who operate on the Internet. Welcome to the front lines of the war on cybercrime, where Special Agent Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane) has seen it all before - until now, when she is assigned to investigate a new untraceable and unstoppable website where a deadly serial killer is placing live footage of his grisly murders. The more people who watch the site, the faster his victims die. When this game of cat and mouse becomes personal, Jennifer must race against the clock to track down and stop the killer before she becomes the next victim.
The premise is interesting, although I suspect influenced by an episode from television show Millennium in the 90's, or certainly that's the impression I had. In that episode the detective sought to track down an online killer based on the Zodiac, known as the Avatar. However in Untraceable any suspense or dread has been lost.
A killer is on a spree but unlike others conducts his murders online. This is the only nugget of originality, the characters lack any depth and the killings are bloody. The direction is bland and the decent budget is evident, yet without the gore this could have been a television movie.
