Gallons of the titular correction fluid may have helped Dominic Sena's abysmal thriller if it had been applied at just about any juncture during the graphic novel-to-feature film script stage.

When the snow starts blowing, it's impossible to tell who's who and what's what. Maybe parkas should be color-coded.

Whiteout isn't particularly bad but it does follow the thriller playbook step-by-step with only a little tweaking. A lack of originality isn't the end of the world but it could have been so much better.

Dominic Sena, whose credits include 1993's 'Kalifornia' (good) and 1996's 'Swordfish' (not so good), can't seem to find anything new under the perpetually obscured sun.

If you'd forgotten that this title ever existed, well, so have I.

South Pole-set whodunnit is bloody but bland.

Okay, it's far from the best murder mystery you've ever seen, but I still can't help but liking this throwaway thriller. The ending was no surprise. Paul Chambers, CNN.

...it's painless. Brainless, too, but not so much so that you want to throw a shoe at the screen.

Needed: Generic thriller in an exotic setting, some gore, possible sci-fi elements, female lead, and an older male star to play grizzled supporting character. Must work cheap.

Whiteout is a colorless wasteland. There's only one thing that could have helped cover this film up: A flashback that changed the script's name to Wite-Out.

The film's biggest crime is that no obvious effort was made here, everything flows with the rigidity of a check list of genre cliches and safe choices.

The movie is as inert as the wintry terrain in which it is set.

I wasn't entertained, I just wanted out of the supposed cold.

a relatively mediocre, by-the-numbers mystery thriller that melts from your mind as soon as you step into the sunlight

The misleading trailer suggests 'Nancy Drew vs. the Thing,' but this graphic-novel adaptation is more 'CSI: Antractica' -- a straight if occasionally gruesome murder mystery, boosted by the novelty of its sub-zero South Pole setting.

The film's slick and expensive looking but dumber than a dead penguin.

Kate Beckinsale, adrift in a blizzard of cliches, doesn't have enough star presence or her Stevie Nicks black leather vampire drag to keep audiences from drifting away. Bland and predictable.

Is best when dealing with the splendors of the natural landscape.
