Antarctica is the perfect setting for a crime mystery. In this film it is completely wasted. You never feel that the characters are on the South Pole and the action scenes are confusing and boring. The mystery is achingly standard and I guarantee that everybody can guess who the villain is within the first 10 minutes. Beckinsale is gorgeous as always, but even here the movie has problems, due to her bad haircut :-)

Crap thriller complete with the seemingly omnipotent killer who's in fact just some regular guy that's given extraordinary super villain powers from the magical entity known as plot device. It features a twist at the end that adds absolutely nothing to the story at all. Combined with bad acting (why Kate Beckinsale makes people flock to the theatres is beyond me) you've got a real stinker. General idea was neat though, I'll admit.

Some clunky acting & dialogue has been left in & that's esp. noticeable in what's more of a character-driven mystery than an action thriller.An opening cheesecake shot of Beckinsale only highlights her miscasting. Lackng any rough edges she seems2 willowy & soft-spoken2 b a US Marshall. Lastly: 1 tracking shot through the compound does not equal a sense of place & its people (e.g. Is the doctor Beckinsale's only friend?What does she do all day?) 4 what it's worth: it does get better as it goes.

Imagine movie The Thing without the thing. That's Whiteout. Except the visuals were pretty lame. There was one more or less plausible fight in the blast, but that's it. Boring story, lots of repeating scenes and bad acting. Keep away. If Beckinsale's acting skills in this movie were the shower scene in the very beginning, it was much.

Not only is it boring and badly written, the director can't even get anything out of the promising surroundings. When Kate puts her clothes back on in the beginning, you can stop watching.

It's not the abortion that apparently RT (according to what another user says) thinks it is, really. There's very little great about this besides a hot view of Beckinsale, and some decent views of Antarctica. But it's not awful. It was entertaining enough despite how inconsistent it was and how little you could invest yourself in these people.

How the fuck did they work a shower scene into a movie where everyone wears parkas all the time?

The antarctica location is interesting but it is wasted with rather cliche characters and poor two dimensional acting from most of the cast. On the positive side of things the production values are high so if you like watching a highly polished mediocre "whodunit" thriller for a night of drinking it fulfills that criteria. The end is totally laughable and Dominic Sena's use of flashback sequences just screams 3rd rate Hollywood trash director.

Very old school thriller - but not in a good way. Cliché-ridden, predictable and worst of all: the action was dull. I liked Beckinsale and Skerritt. It seems people agree that the only reason for this movie to exist is the shower scene. Wait, that's enough for me, actually.

Whiteout is in no means a terrible or even bad film. It does suffer from a few issues that distance it from the viewer, but never enough that should make you want to turn it off. The acting is on the whole quite good, with standout performances by Kate Beckinsale and Tom Skerritt. The frozen air ends up being the most dangerous threat in the film, and despite making it hard to see what is going on while characters are outside, allow the film to be fresh enough to warrant a watch.

Actually it's fairly interesting until it approaches the climax where it falls flat and comes apart looking like a spook movie. Even then it doesn't deserve the 7% at RT.

Despite the unique setting, this is a relatively bland mystery/thriller. The central plotline is not very interesting at all, and none of the thrills are very thrilling. For a non-horror film, there was also quite a bit of gore, including an (unintentionally?) disturbing amputation scene. Also, this is one of the few big budget films I've seen lately that had distractingly bad editing, a lot of scenes were missing basic elements like establishing shots.

The green screen & CGI effects in the movie are really bad laughably so. The over use of flashbacks including flashbacks to scenes that literally had just happened really got repetitive and annoying. Its an average thriller with a disappointing ending that doesn't make that much sense.

It's not a complete failure, but still a second-rate thriller that's not worth your time. Nothing particularly interesting except Beckinsale's body--but you already knew that.

Being someone who grew up with cold snowy winters helps appreciate this film. The starkness of the environment contrasting with the beauty of Beckinsale adds to the feeling of being in such a remote location which in turn adds to the mystery side of the story.

Instead of killing idiots in a frat-house kills a bunch of frat-house idiots in an arctic outpost.

I upped it 5 points due to some pretty hot Beckinsale bum. But I hold that this flick underwhelms due to sub-par dialogue, an ending that fell flat on its face with a pretentious attempt at an epic death scene, as well as the tacked-on back-story for Beckinsale's character, which served no purpose but to extend the flick and then be tossed aside as a lame explanation for why Beckinsale doesn't trust the UN guy at the beginning. Cudos for the killer's death though, it was pretty badass.

I am once again reminded of Scott Thompson's line (from his KITH Buddy monologue) "One day, some American thought, 'Hey--I want to make a terrible movie in Canada... everyone else has!'" This is terrible, all right.

Entertaining - yet, utterly predictable - fluff. Loses points for not being able to suspend disbelief (you've established a -50 degree environment... stick with it... freezes coffee in no time flat, but does nothing to bare skin exposed for minutes???)

Not a really involved plot but it did have a surprise at the end that I really should have picked up on from earlier clues +3 for that.

"It's a wonder Whiteout isn't in 3D, what with its initial onslaught of in-your-face flying propellers, crashing planes, and a lingering close-up of Kate Beckinsale stripping to her skivvies." - Nick Schager

Run-of-the-will mystery in an out-of-the-way locale, a South Pole research center about to the snowed under for the season, and already buffeted by some blinding blizzards, partially obscuring the action. Kate Beckinsale, buffeted herself by some terrible sepia flashbacks to a past trauma, is the capable but not invulnerable detective.

Disturbingly violent thriller. On a good note, the gorgeous Beckinsale delivers her obligatory disrobing and shower scene very early in the film so, guys, if you doze off in the final third...you're good.

This film never allows itself to get going. A murder mystery unfolds as Carrie Stetko has flashbacks to another mystery she was a apart of. A killer on the loose in Antarctica, through the cold and the freezing temperatures, they run around looking for evidence as to what has been taking place. All the while they play a chase game on ropes that run from building to building. Not so thrilling and a bit predictable as it progresses. Still though for some reason I just cant hate the film.

Unbelievable dull, boring and stupid with terrible effects on top. Dominic Sena sucks!
