    A man has a near-death experience when attempting suicide and re-awakens with the ability to discern who is about to die next. Armed with a new purpose in life, he dedicates himself to saving those he can but soon discovers that his actions have grave consequences.... This DTV (direct-to-video) release employs a cast to entice any TV sci-fi fan starring <i>Firefly's</i> Nathan Fillion and <i>Battlestar Galactica's</i> Katee Sackhoff. I was disappointed to discover she doesn't have many scenes as 2nd-billing would indicate, but she's very good in her role as the nurse who tends to Fillion's physical and mental wounds, showing that she is not a one-role wonder during her impressive turn as Starbuck. But this is mainly The Captain Mal Show and Fillion does a steady job carrying the movie. I wonder if this would have played better as a low-key suspenser in the mold of <i>Unbreakable</i> because there simply aren't enough thrills to stretch over 100 minutes. The soundtrack is crammed with the extrasensory "white noise" Fillion hears and sees which is a sound designer's creative dream but splits the effective-to-annoying ratio at 1:2. Moves at an unhurried pace and we often figure out key plot points minutes before Fillion does so we have to sit back and wait for him to catch up. Perhaps that's how the director managed to conjure a couple good jump-scares among the duds. Although 90% nonsense, I enjoyed the story which takes a nifty unexpected turn. This is the first movie I've seen based on a recommendation from the guy who hosts <i>Totally Twisted Flix</i> and he didn't steer me far wrong, this is decent paranormal fodder. Especially if you're a Rush fan, where a children's choir rendition of "The Spirit of Radio" more than makes up for a rather muddled ending.

    Way, way better than the first, it doesn't even seem to be a sequel. The plot was much more interesting than the first one and, of course, it had Nathan Fillion which by himself is always enjoyable to watch.

    Slightly better than it's predecessor, White Noise The Light has very little in common with it's older sibling. This time the film is more concerned with being exciting, creepy and disturbing. It mostly pays off. More of a super-hero movie, where Fillion can sense who is about to die. The film has a wonderful twist and plays on the idea of meddling in matters of fate. Unfortunately, there are just too many small moments of cheap/corniness. Had it not been made as a sequel to White Noise, it could have been more free to do it's own thing and have it's own style.
