Review: Untraceable (Blu-ray)

Filed under: blu-ray,movie — technofranki @ 22:52

Untraceable (Blu-ray) is about an FBI division which investigate crimes committed on Internet. We follow special agent Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane) and Griffin Dowd (Colin Hanks) in their work against crime.

They sit behind their computers and look for non-legal activities. One day they came over a live web camera feed of a room with a cat, which dies. But this is only the beginning. A man is kidnapped and he turn up on the Internet website KillWithMe.com. The more people that comes to the site and watch the live feed, the faster he…. OK, you may guess it, but I don’t want to spoil too much for you.

Untraceable is a good thriller with a good story. Many movies that involves the use of computer looks fake and simplyfied. But Untraceable looks real in that department, and they even use real OS like XP and Vista (if I’m not mistaken). The picture quality is good, with intentional grain.

I got Untraceable from Amazon.com and the Blu-ray disc states on the back that it is Region A, but it is actualy region free, and plays very well on my European PS3. Some specs for the disc:
