Untraceable, or is it?

I just watched Untraceable with the wife the other night. It is the movie with Diane Lane where she plays an FBI cyber-crimes expert. The premise was a killer put up a website (killwithme.com) and the more hits the site got the faster the victim died. There was of course no way to track the killer via the internet because the killer was too intelligent. It is weird to me how often movies with very technical premises don’t really have a technical consultant to help make sure what the actors are saying makes sense. Also, if you show a character having a certain level of intelligence don’t take that intelligence away from them at later point when they could really use it. In the end, it was a good movie but you have to turn your brain off to accept some of it.
