If a thriller starring Kate Beckinsale as a badass U.S. Marshal sounds a bit off, based on early critic reviews for Whiteout, you're correct. But there is an extended, gratuitous Kate Beckinsale-in-her-undies scene.
"...a conventionally jam-packed, dutifully ludicrous action thriller..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"While the setting can be mesmerizing, little else about this movie is captivating. It's a standard-issue thriller, with a twist you see coming a continent away."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"...like the Antarctic setting, this overly confusing expedition leaves us cold."
— Pete Paras, E! Online
"Dull and draining, Whiteout should have been offered under one of these preferable alternate titles — Washout, or even better, Wornout."
— Bill Gibron, filmcritic.com
"...a severely nonthrilling thriller..."
— Kyle Smith, New York Post
