4.0 out of 5 stars Super chiller thriller 20 Jun 2012
By Steven TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whiteout 6 Aug 2010
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Whiteout Works 28 Jan 2010
By Mitun
'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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better. 8 April 2013
By Barry
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit different! 10 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Originally saw this at the cinema, so i knew it was a good 'un.
Don't really know what genre this should be - possibly a crime thriller? Don't want to give any of the plot away - but this movie certainly puts you in the cold (made me shiver!), and keeps you on the edge of your seat suspense-wise.
Well worth a watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yep - definitely a Washout 15 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The CGI in Whiteout looks a bit flat and false, and sadly this also reflects the tone of the movie. I like Kate Beckinsale, but she is neither convincing nor emotionally involving as a U.S. Marshall. Perhaps because this Marshall is so dumb! We get a body in the middle of the antartic ill-prepared for winter weather, but she doesn't say that it probably got dumped out of a plane like the audience does within 5 seconds! Plus she get's attacked in a virtually abandoned Artic base, only to go back and take the word of the only living man left that he's an investigator and blindly follows him on other trails without first cuffing him and taking him back to her base to thoroughly check out his story??? Plus warning: A further plot spoiler is when they discover a plane under the ice for everyone to go in rather than someone stay back just in case something goes wrong, so HELLO! Something of course goes wrong with an ice cave-in trapping everyone! Sorry - but with both the plotting and characers just blanding stumbling along I tutted. Even the only real action sequences of fighting in a blizzard attached to ropes got marred by being played out twice! Once in the middle and then at the climax of the movie! All in all, the film could've been a lot better with a bit more logical intelligence, credible acting and a sinister more atmospheric twist in the tale surprise to it.
