U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko (played by Kate Beckinsale) is a Marshal at U.S. research station Amundsen-Scott located in Antarctica. Stetko has been informed that a corpse was found on the ice a few miles from the station. She and the local “Doc” go out to retrieve it and after studying the frozen body, determined that it was no accident, but a murder.

Carrie searches for the killer as the sun is about to set for six months in Antarctica, but she is determined. She comes across Robert Pryce (Gabriel Macht) from the U.S. also trying to find the killer so the word about murders in Antarctica does not spread. As the two set out on the ice headed to another station, a shocking discovery is made. Fifty years prior, a Russian aircraft crashed and was now many feet below the frozen tundra.

It was here that they concluded the murder took place. The plane had many treasures and secrets. A secret that is worth killing people for.

This movie comes off to be an action packed suspenseful movie. But, it came out to more gore and mystery. The movie was hard to follow, and doesn’t fit the trailer tag who “nature never intended for you to survive here”. The environment seems to have little effect on the main idea of the story and leaves you with more chills than thrills.
