Review [11.Sep.2009]

The 1998 comic Whiteout is brought to the big screen. U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) is the sole law enforcer in Antarctica, and is assigned to investigate a brutal murder three days before the sun sets for six months, marking the beginning of the Antarctic winter. As her investigation deepens into the first such crime in the region, she enlists the help of a U.N. operative (Gabriel Macht). With the brutal winter on her heels and the killer closing in, Stetko uncovers secrets that were buried under the ice. Secrets that someone believes are worth killing for.


Kate Beckinsale, Gabriel Macht, Columbus Short and Tom Skerritt all star in Whiteout, which opens to wide release on September 11th.

Whiteout is full of problems: most strikingly, it fails visually, as no tension is wrought from the titular event's poor visibility.
