Action thriller based on the 1998 comic book by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber. Kate Beckinsale stars as Carrie Stetko, the lone US Marshal assigned to Antarctica, who has been assigned to investigate the frozen continent's first murder case. With only days to go until the sun sets for six months, Carrie must race against time to unravel the shocking mystery at the heart of the case - or end up stranded with the killer in this desolate and dangerous wasteland.

Hugely enjoyable thriller with a unique setting. There's a slasher flick in here alongside a murder mystery, a thriller and an action crime drama. I didn't expect it to be the film of all films so I was very pleasantly surprised with it, given the amount of harsh criticism this thing has taken. Kate Beckinsale is easy to watch, it has an interesting story which is competently staged, so what if it's familiar ground, it's done well. I'm glad I bought the DVD.

Format: Blu-ray
Starting with a mid-air shootout on a Russian cargo plane and a spectacular crash in the Antarctic wastes, Whiteout gets off to a good start and throws in a decent hook with the discovery on the ice of the body of the continent's first murder victim half a century later, but never really rises above the okay despite all the bells and whistles it puts on its familiar murder story by setting it at the bottom of the world. Coming from Joel Silver's horror label Dark Castle there's obviously a big dark secret behind it all - though despite being based on a graphic novel it's not a supernatural one - but it's not a particularly compelling getting there. It's the kind of film with lengthy, detailed CGi establishing shots of base camps and long show-off single take tracking shots following characters through the sets and where the closest thing to introductory character development is Kate Beckinsale's U.S. Marshal having a shower and the odd laughably over-stylised flashback to a shooting in Miami while it's waiting to set up the story. It doesn't help that with Tom Skerritt's doctor and paternal sidekick the only familiar face in the underpowered and underwritten supporting cast no-one particularly stands out: they're there to move the story along, nothing more, and tend to do it somewhat anonymously.

The plot isn't a million miles away from a much less ambitious version of earlier icebound flop Bear Island (research scientists killed off by killer among them) and at times it starts to give off the odd whiff of the ending of Smilla's Sense of Snow, albeit with less of the character that helped distinguish that before it got too silly.

I was a bit dubious about getting this dvd becasue it got a good slating by a lot of people and critics. However, anything with Kate Beckinsale in it has to be worth a look and this is without doubt.

Basically mysterious goings on start to occur on a remote Antartic Outpost where she is the sheriff and she has to investigate strange deaths before an enormous storm hits the region.

This is a very atmospheric film thats certainly worth watching and wasnt worthy of all the abuse it got. If you like thrillers and murder mysteries, I'm certain you will enjoy this film.

Format: DVD
Kate Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshall stationed in Antarctica. (Do they have them there?) She investigates a murder which develops into a series of murders including an attempt on her life. The number of suspects is slightly more than a Scooby-Doo episode, but not by much.

The film opens with a Russian plane crash in 1957, then shifts to the present with a gratuitous scene of Kate peeling off layers of clothes to take a shower. However, that is not the "some nudity" promised in the rating box. It is male streakers. Yup. So don't get your hopes up.

In addition to the murders, Kate has to battle the elements as well as frequent annoying Miami flashbacks, explained about midway through the movie. I found Beckinsale unconvincing in her role. In fact all the characters are stiff without any memorable personality traits. Not worth a view. Soundtrack wasn't that good either.

Format: DVD
'Whiteout' is a slasher/murder mystery thriller that was panned by critics and was a box-office failure.

The movie is based in Antarctica and follows a U.S. Deputy Marshal Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) who after discovering murder incidents, attempts to hunt down the killer.

I rented the DVD because the cast is good, the director (Dominic Sena) previously made 'Gone in Sixty Seconds', which I like and also because I love my murder mysteries.

The movie starts with a bang (action scene), setting the mood and then works on the mystery. The movie continues to unfold in a formulatic manner without becoming boring and finally ends with a twist.

The two main things that struck me was the beautiful scenery of Antarctica and the climax, which I personally did not predict. For me, the movie worked because it kept me somewhat interested and gave me what I expect from a mystery thriller, an unpredictable climax.

The flaws are the movie offers nothing new when it comes to plot, there are no jump-out-of-your-seat moments and the acting from the cast including Kate Beckinsale is below-par.

The direction provided by Dominic Sena is quite good as he managed to keep me watching the movie.

'Whiteout' is one of those movies that you should not expect much from and in return will be rewarded.

I think Whiteout starts off very well for the first 30 or so minutes, after that I felt the problem was the plot was a bit rushed through.
Kate Beckinsale puts in a decent enough performance and the look of the film is at times visually stunning.
I'd rate this 3 out of 5.
