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.

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.

Setting Whiteout in Antarctica salvages the movie from the cinematic scrap heap.

A tolerably entertaining film starring the weather.

...an easy enough way to pass time if you're not too demanding or if the cast or unusual setting piques your interest.

The most surprising thrill ride of the summer, in that it is adequately thrilling and I didn't expect that.

Depicts how a woman U.S. marshal at a frigid station in Antarctica is tested on many levels by a murder case.

Beckinsale gives a standout performance as the smart and tough female protagonist. You root for her to prevail over the bad guys.

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.

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.

...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.

September 26, 2009
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.
September 24, 2009
The movie is as inert as the wintry terrain in which it is set.
