Consensus: Kate Beckinsale is as lovely as ever, and does her best with the material, but moribund pacing and an uninspired plot leave Whiteout in the cold.

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.

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

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

Kate Beckinsale is about as convincing a U.S. Marshal as Joan Crawford is a loving mother.

For all its frozen blood, assaults with ice axes and killer weather, Whiteout turns out to be only a pale imitation of the thriller it might have been.

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.

An ok horror thriller with some cool Arctic shots but nothing new and very predictable.
