The really...really..bad acting makes it a waste of popcorn money to see on the big screen. It is slow and a ho..hum plot.

Antarctica is a good place for a murder mystery in "Whiteout," but apart from the cold tempertures and the presence of Kate Beckinsale, the film lack suspense. the recent murder are link to a plane crash that happen some fifty years ago. And a few people are turned up dead. And a major storm is coming. The only thing beside Beckinsale, that intrest me is the weather and the tempture. I notice at the bottom of the screen that the temperture is 65 degrees below zero. If you add the chill factor, it might be in the triple digits below zero. Something you think about as you see this movie, or don't. The flashback of Beckinsale being assulted by a drug dealer has nothing to do with the present. I love Kate Beckinsale more that I love this movie.

This is a run-of-the-mill thriller whose only claim to fame is the Antarctic setting. Tension is raised not by a good story and interesting characters, but by a soundtrack that tells you how you should be feeling at any given moment.

Kate Beckinsale is definitely easy to watch in any movie, but here, the director starts with a shoe-horned undressing and shower scene that doesn't do anything for the movie, but will probably thrill a few people no matter what. It's an awkward scene that lingers far too long, and nothing of substance is shown anyway, so what's the point? I'm amazed that Beckinsale agreed to do the scene and leave it in the final cut...

The relationships between some of the characters provides some redeeming qualities, but you still end up caring very little for the outcome. Perhaps some will be surprised by the identity of the killer and accomplice, but it wasn't hard to see coming.

There is some amount of tension as the climax draws near and the characters are fighting not only each other, but the onslaught of winter weather in the Antarctic, but it's a completely forgettable experience overall.

A final word of warning. This is one of those movies in which the trailer does not convey the plot of the movie accurately at all. This is a standard murder mystery and action thriller, and the trailer makes it out to be something very different.
