Storyline

U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko is three days from the end of her tour at an international research station in Antarctica after which she'll resign. An incident from her past haunts her. The continent's first winter storm is coming when a body, wearing no gear, is discovered in the tundra. She investigates, soon finds more bodies, and must find a motive and a murderer before the storm and her departure. A U.N. agent, Robert Pryce, appears, seemingly out of nowhere, to help. An aging physician about to retire, a nervous mission chief, a downed Soviet plane, and the weather's deadly elements add to the story. Can Carrie trust Pryce and does she still have what it takes?

Trivia

Screenwriter and novelist Alexander Stuart wrote an early draft of the script, while Reese Witherspoon was still attached, following a studio-sponsored research trip to Barrow, Alaska (the northernmost point in continental North America) - which scientists said was the closest location in "feel" to McMurdo Station in Antarctica.

Goofs

The station leader Sam points to Haworth Mesa on the map as being in the Australian Antarctic Territory of east Antarctica. Haworth Mesa, where Weiss was found, is in the Trans-Antartic Mountains of west Antarctica approximately 1300 km south-east of McMurdo. Weiss' two companions then turn up at Vostok in east Antarctic, 1600 km away. See more »

People must have set their expectations too high
27 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well last night I went and saw this movie. I didn't know a lot about it, and i have found that that is the best way to see a movie, because if you watch all the previews and get too hipped up about it, then you are most likely going to set your self up for disaster. My sister went with me and she was on the edge of her seat the whole time, and she isn't the type to get over excited about things.

I've read where people left a lot of negative comments, but I don't understand what was so bad. First, the acting was not less than par and the movie portrayed a halfway accurate setting of what Antarctica is like. Sure they did lack a little bit of what would really happen with the lack of face protection, Kate's face would not have survived as well as it did when she went out without face protection in -60f temps.

People that rated this movie as poorly as they did because of their disbelief in what its like to be in conditions like this, apparently have never been in conditions lie this. I've never been in -60 temps with 100 mph winds, but I've been in -50 temps with 40 mph winds, and its surviveable.
