Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's Kate Beckinsale on Ice."
‑ Jake Coyle, Associated Press
"Where are the penguins?"
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"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."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"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."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"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."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"The film's slick and expensive looking but dumber than a dead penguin."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"A stupid thriller."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"When the snow starts blowing, it's impossible to tell who's who and what's what. Maybe parkas should be color-coded."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"If you'd forgotten that this title ever existed, well, so have I."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"...it's painless. Brainless, too, but not so much so that you want to throw a shoe at the screen."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Kate Beckinsale is about as convincing a U.S. Marshal as Joan Crawford is a loving mother."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"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."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"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."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"South Pole-set whodunnit is bloody but bland."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
