A death in Antarctica spurs an investigation that leads to a murder mystery over lost Soviet-era cannisters.
Decent enough to recommend for a watch, but as I've seen three times now I can say that it's a forgettable movie save for Kate Beckensale being hot.
No relation to Wite-Out (correction fluid)
- Southern Hemisphere, Winter, 1957
- 2:30 -- It seems like a bad idea not just to be gunning people down in an aircraft but to be that close to them such that one could charge you. The guy didn't quickly pull back to shoot the other one. Maybe I've seen too many westerns. Wait, I think I've seen less than ten.
- 3:25 -- That's not cover.
- 3:55 -- I guess he was behind that metal steamer.
- 4:30 -- It's left prop was sheared off when the plane hit the mountain earlier.
5:30 -- Antarctica - The coldest, most isolated land mass on the planet.
- i.e. Southern Hemisphere, Winter, present day.
- Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station
- 6:40 -- That's a hell of a lot of people. This is a fucking research station, not a military base.
- 8:00 -- Undressing porn.
- 8:20 -- Kate Beckensale is not in my bedroom in this scene.
- 8:30 -- Kate Beckensale is not in my bathroom in this scene.
- 10:00 -- Why would noodles be better than "that mess hall crap"?
- 10:30 -- Is she a researcher? Why would she need to go somewhere or do or see stuff because of some possible weather balloon or tent?
- 12:10 -- Penis humiliation humour is funny.
- 13:10 -- Whiteout (weather)
- 13:40 -- Putting their coats on now wouldn't help much. They can't generate enough body heat to warm back up again.
- 16:20 -- Maybe his body was stripped by a now-late survivor? Though that wouldn't account for the position of his body.
- 17:15 -- Actual PTSD.
- 18:40 -- I don't see why or how anyone would be standing near the doors, especially if they're single-doors.
- 21:00 -- It's not her choice to stay there or not.
- 22:30 -- Ablation zone, Meteorite
- 23:20 -- Oh, that's the research station.. but where is she now?
- 24:10 -- No. How about I send a plane and you come in? No, you come here.
- 24:40 -- I know, right.. how are you supposed to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?
- 25:00 -- There's no way they would leave something like that to chance. They'd be going out many days earlier.
- 27:30 -- Vostok Station
- 28:00 -- There's no way that coffee would freeze like that and yet she could breathe out there.
- 29:00 -- Given the bullshit she was given earlier, she ought to have her gun out.
- 31:00 -- So again with the cold, and her hands are still working. Weren't we given a lesson on motor skills earlier?
- 31:30 -- She's be using her elbows and hands-in-pockets by then.
- 32:20 -- She's clearly unfit to serve.
- 32:50 -- How are her hands working?
- 34:20 -- Oh hey, that's the guy in Suits - (2011 show) (Gabriel Macht).
- 36:00 -- McMurdo Station
- 38:50 -- Baghdad (Iraq War)
- 40:30 -- The worst thing to do with someone who fell through something would be to run after them and lay right on the fucking edge.
- 42:00 -- Why have they been ignoring the murderer instead of going back there in force?
- 48:00 -- Maybe they could burn the bodies for heat, except there's no way to exhaust the fumes.
- 48:20 -- Speaking of access to a plane, why did they leave theirs unguarded?
- 50:45 -- Seriously? A vehicle like that would have starter-power not connected to the lights.
- 51:55 -- And their truck falls through the ice. Roll credits.
- 53:30 -- In weather that can freeze water solid in a moment, a dead guy's core will freeze pretty quickly. I don't think it would take a day..
- 54:50 -- Frostbite, Necrosis
- 57:00 -- Kudos for this movie's amputation.
- 1:02:00 -- Let me help you undres-- oh, button up. Well I suppose.
- 1:03:30 -- Radar can look for things under the snow/ice? I thought that was some sort of sonic thing.
- 1:05:35 -- What. She could kick open those doors easier than ramming a cart through. That's just stupid. She couldn't even kick open those doors. The handle of a shovel.. firstly wouldn't be wood these years and secondly is fucking strong. It's almost as though it's meant to withstand years of shovelling through snow or something.
- 1:07:30 -- I'm pretty sure that's a violation of due process.
- 1:08:30 -- If they're under a time crunch, why not have several other trusted people searching too? The doctor and base leader come to mind.
- 1:09:30 -- This is another one of those "if only they had a guard on him" moments.
- 1:11:40 -- You'd think the place would be secured from all the shit flying about. This crap is like having dishes laying about on a boat.
- 1:12:30 -- Can a regular handgun even be fired under those weather conditions?
- 1:13:00 -- He doesn't have a gun. Isn't that .. a problem when chasing after a rather skilled murderer?
- 1:14:40 -- Oh, he does have a gun-- oh, he did have a gun.
- 1:17:30 -- At what points could he have have just cut a cable?
- 1:18:00 -- Geeze, finally someone cuts something.
1:19:10 -- She'd be killing them both if it were radioactive. Also, wouldn't it be lead or something? Maybe it's lead-lined. Also, wouldn't it be heavy?
- It wasn't lead-lined or heavy. It didn't and could not house radioactive material.
- 1:20:20 -- You can get a fax in that weather?
1:22:40 -- The place has lights, ya know.
- 1:23:00 -- I saw some LEDs just then, so there's power.
- 1:25:15 -- She could be feeling around the bags from the outside.
- 1:26:30 -- I think it would be cool if he sewed a canister into his leg.
1:26:50 -- Or that dude's chest.
- Well since I've seen this twice before, years ago, I must just be remembering plot elements.
- 1:27:40 -- Aww, ewwww.
- 1:28:00 -- Is it radioactive?
- 1:28:30 -- This movie is brought to you by De Beers, encouraging murder since 1888.
- 1:30:30 -- Aurora Australis
- 1:31:45 -- I would be first in line for stripping with her and cuddling in a sleeping bag to warm her up.
- 1:32:30 -- Did the pilot-dude die?
- 1:32:50 -- Did it take her six months to decide all this?
1:33:00 -- Oh, he lived. Also, what happened to the diamonds?
