Whiteout | Chicago Reader



Shapely but otherwise ungifted Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) is a U.S. marshal racing to solve a series of bloody murders in Antarctica before research facilities there are locked down by six months of polar winter. The crimes have something to do with a downed Soviet cargo plane buried under the ice since the 1950s. The film's slick and expensive looking but dumber than a dead penguin, and director Dominic Sena fails worst where it counts most, in staging intelligible action sequences set in a blinding blizzard. The tepid, undermotivated cast is rounded out by Tom Skerritt (the poor man's Kris Kristofferson), Columbus Short (the younger Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Gabriel Macht (a big, square-jawed lump of nothing.) 96 min.
