Following two straight-to-DVD releases, Kate Beckinsale sees her career take another blow with this messy, confusing murder mystery set in Antarctica. Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshal stationed at an outpost where a body is discovered. It turns out somebody is running around killing people with an ice ax. Tom Skerritt shows up as a crusty doctor, and nothing of interest really happens. Director Dominic Sena throws in a gratuitous shower scene at the beginning, as if he knew his film had nothing to offer and needed a marketing hook. Beckinsale is a decent actress, and she deserves better than this.

Other than a tacked-on skin scene, there's nothing worth seeing in 'Whiteout'
