While digesting my Thanksgiving meal, I wanted to watch a good movie in
front of the fire on a cold winter night. Whiteout seemed appealing
because of the synopsis and the setting. I love the desolate setting of
an science facility in the cold lifeless continent of Antartica. There
is always something creepy and thrilling about being so far from
civilization and life sustaining climate; the movie had a similar
creepiness to some other thrillers that take place in deep space. The
plot and setting were original, and keep you guessing throughout the
movie. The suspense and thrills were more likened to a horror movie or
a slasher film, but I say that in a good way. My 17 year old daughter
and wife had to turn their eyes away for many scenes in fear and
I like to judge movies by what their intent is. I try and compare Old
School to Gone with the Wind for example... 2 completely different
audiences and intents, but both great movies that deliver what they try
to deliver. In my opinion, Whiteout delivered what it tried to deliver,
a scary, interesting, beautiful, thrilling escape. Exactly what I
wanted to see on a cold Friday night in front of the fire!
