Whiteout was originally released as a graphic novel by Oni Press in 1998, written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Steve Lieber.
Rucka told Newsarama: "The film has a great sense of the environment and never really loses it.
"They did a beautiful job of not only capturing Steve's visuals literally, but even the feel of his visuals."
The Surrogates writer Robert Venditti appeared equally pleased with the translation of his Top Shelf-published comic.
"I wanted my characters to be there. And I wanted the subtext and commentary that I was driving for in the comics to be there. And the relationship between the main character and his wife was very central to the story, and the effect that the surrogates had on their marriage, I wanted that to be in the film," Venditti said.
"So obviously they changed some things, added characters and subplots, but basically, the core story is the same."
Whiteout, starring Kate Beckinsale, is out now, while the Bruce Willis vehicle Surrogates is due out September 25.
