For low altitude flight the cabin would not be pressurized. Although the bullets from the opening gunfight damage the plane's hull, this would not result in a catastrophic depressurization.

The film was lavishly produced by Warner Bros in association with Dark Castle , production specialized on terror genre and in charge of Joel Silver , Robert Zemeckis and Gilbert Adler ; both of them have produced successful terror movies dealing with eerie tales about horror , grisly killings and lots of blood and gore such as ¨Gothika¨, ¨House of haunted hill¨, ¨Return to house of haunted hill¨ , ¨13 ghosts¨ , ¨Ghost ship¨, ¨House of wax¨ ,¨Splice¨ , ¨The reaping¨ , ¨Orphan¨ , among others . Although it was not the first Dark Castle Entertainment movie to receceive awful reviews and wasn't the last. It was the first, however, and still is, to be released from this production company along with Warner Bros shelved the film for about two years . The motion picture was professionally directed by Dominic Sena , though it resulted to be critically panned . Dominic Sena is a fan of the "Whiteout" graphic novel, and when rights were acquired by Dark Castle Entertainment , Sena petitioned president Joel Silver for the opportunity to direct .Rating : acceptable and passable. The film will appeal to Kate Beckinsale fans .
