Whiteout (2009)

I watched the 2009 crime thriller Whiteout on Netflix DVD. It is based on the 1998 comic book by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber. I had not read the comic or seen a review on this film prior to my viewing. I liked the movie, was not disappointed in the least. It is just 90 minutes and I was entertained the whole time. I’ll just say that I am in the minority. Whiteout is about a US Marshall, Kate Beckinsale, who is trying to solve a murder mystery on a South Pole station before being evacuated in just three days.

The movie was directed by Dominic Sena (Kalifornia, Gone in 60 Seconds, Swordfish) and produced by Joel Silver (Xanadu, Weird Science, Die Hard, Road House, Lethal Weapon, The Matrix, Swordfish), Susan Downey (The Book of Eli, Iron Man 2, Sherlock Holmes) and David Gambino (2020 Perry Mason series). Whiteout stars Kate Beckinsale (Alice Through the Looking Glass, Pearl Harbor, Serendipity, Underworld, Van Helsing, Total Recall),

Tom Skerritt (MASH, The Night Stalker, The Turning Point, Up in Smoke, Alien, The Dead Zone, Top Gun, Steel Magnolias, Poison Ivy, Combat, The Virginian, Death Valley Days), Columbus Short (You Got Served, Cadillac Records),

Gabriel Macht (Simply Irresistible, Bad Company) and Alex O’Loughlin (Steve McGarrett on Hawaii Five-O). I will give this picture 3 out of 5 stars. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
