Movie review: Whiteout
The icy wasteland of Antarctica practically becomes a character in â€śWhiteout,â€ť the mystery thriller based on the graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber.
The â€śWhiteoutâ€ť of the title refers to a potentially deadly snowstorm that prevents visibility and can strand even an experienced resident of Antarctica.
Kate Beckinsale (â€śUnderworldâ€ť) stars as U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko, who is nearing the end of her two-year term as the law-enforcement officer of this inhospitable land.
But when a body is found between the U.S. base of Amundsen-Scott and the Russian Vostok base, Carrie is drawn into a mystery. She must race the clock to solve the crime before months of darkness descend upon the South Pole.
Examination of the body by the baseâ€™s doctor, Dr. John Fury (Tom Skerritt), reveals it to be that of a geologist named Weiss, who had been studying meteorites in a remote area.
His injuries lead Carrie to believe his death was a murder.
After getting a message from one of Weissâ€™ colleagues, Carrie makes her way to the Vostok base, along with a pilot, Delfy (played by Columbus Short).
