whiteout is a thriller film based on comic book of the same name. the film tells the story of a u.s. deputy marshal in antarctica who have to investigate on a bizarre murder case, the first one in antarctica. as she is digging into the scene, she discovers the mystery buried under the ice.

the only good thing in this film is the visual effects. actually i started to have bad feelings after seeing several flashback scenes. then it gets worse. the thrill is there but the heart of the plot is so lame, plain stupid. this kind of story can be happen anywhere, this time it just happens in the most isolated landmass of planet earth. weak! please try avoid it at all cost, unless you have plenty of time to spare.
