Grimly unpleasant thriller set in Portland, Ore., about an Internet killer torturing his kidnapped victims on a Web site rigged so that the more people who log on the faster the victim will die, while a dedicated FBI cybercrime agent (Diane Lane) races to identify and capture the criminal. The seen-it-all-before setup is less compelling than a TV police procedural, but Lane's intense and committed performance, good work from Billy Burke and Colin Hanks as her task force cronies, and some sad truths about a voyeuristic public elevate the commonplace material a notch or two, with dank if not dull results, courtesy of director Gregory Hoblit. Some relatively brief but gruesome scenes of torture and other violence, some profanity and rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
