      Oh goodness, what did they make now? Based on the 1998 comic book (of the same name) from Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber, “Whiteout” is an arctic-set murder thriller starring Kate Beckinsale as a heroine. Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshal assigned to a US station in Antarctica where she ends up having to investigate a murder on the ice, or rather, a plane crash on the ice (is it ironic that this movie was


      released on September 11th of this year and it involves a plane crash?).

      The catch is that she has to solve this murder mystery within three days time or else a severe ice storm will trap her and whoever else on the continent for months until winter season is over. Along the way, she stumbles into a United Nations associate who is also investigating the very same murder case. I’ve noticed lately that studios have often been making thrillers and such set on the continent of Antarctica or (similarly enough) ...


      • Alaska lately (”Alien vs. Predator”, “30 Days of Night”, and now this). Well, this is perhaps the least interesting of them all.

        Not only does “Whiteout” state the most obvious facts to its audience members (assuming they are too dumb to realize what’s going on), it is a complete bore. The trailer tries to make things interesting but when it boils down to the movie itself, the twist simply doesn’t hold up. It’s a novice murder story disguised as a rip-off of “The Thing” (there’s no aliens in this one,

        by the way, in case you were wondering, but that’s not to say that the killer has anything to do with an ‘alien’ movie though).

        Other than that, there’s an uninteresting backstory with Kate Beckinsale’s character (boring cop and cliched cop material, we’ve seen it all before) and there’s a nasty subplot involving frostbite to top it all off. I don’t even want to even hint at who the killer is in “Whiteout” (despite the fact that I already did), it’s not even worth it, that’s how disappointing this film is.
