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.

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.

'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.

Watched WHITEOUT just this week , was better than i expected - imo an above average thriller, the story is good , but can be a bit predictable at times ,it has some nice moments of suspence, the acting was great Kate Beckinsale and Tom Skerrit handled there roles with ease , the sfx / cgi was great in places - not so great either at times,however i did think that the whiteout / severe weather conditions were done very well indeed ,the dvd has some nice special features / making off doc where the main stars all get interviewed ,and a sfx documentary too , also has deleted scenes ,all in all I enjoyed this , and if you like a thriller then would def recommend it - especially at this great price :)

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.

There are some interesting visual flourishes in this movie, illustrating it's origins as a graphic novel. The concept itself is intriguing, using an unlikely location (Antarctica) as a setting for a whodunnit style thriller, with a cast that normally can be relied on to do a decent job. Alas, the concept starts to weaken on two fronts.. firstly, the treatment of it's star, Kate Beckinsale. A lengthy introducing tracking shot culimates in an equally lengthy shower scene, which plotwise serves to tell us... well, truthfully it serves no plot purpose at all, other than to have Kate Beckinsale in a shower scene right at the start - perhaps to hook the people that might turn off when they discover she is going to be all dressed up in bulky Antarctic gear for the rest of the movie? And then secondly, if we are to revel in her acting ability - why then serve her with a script so clunky you have to assume it got frostbite on the way to the location and had its common sense amputated?
The plot is intriguing.. a Russian plane downed in the Cold War carrying a valuable cargo, serves as a prologue to a murder in current day North Pole. As the Marshall, Kate has to figure it out, but all the suspects are about to leave on the last plane out before Winter sets in. The setting is particularly cool - (pun intended), with the frigid weather convincingly portrayed for the most part, and some of the frozen beauty of the scenery is striking (actually Canada, not Antarctica, of course). The whodunit will have you guessing - for at least a few minutes. For the rest of the movie you'll have to rely on cardboard dialogue and mediocre action scenes. On the plus side, Tom Skerritt does a good enough job to survive with his dignity intact, and the scenery is good.
