Antarctica ... The most isolated landmass on Earth. Six million square miles of ice. Six months of darkness. Winds at 100 miles per hour ... Nature never intended you to survive here. For U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale Snow Angels, The Aviator), things are about to get even more dangerous. The only law enforcement in this unforgiving territory, she has just been sent to investigate a body on the ice. Antarctica's first homicide. A shocking discovery in itself, it will plunge her into an even more bizarre mystery and the revelation of secrets long-buried under the endless ice ... secrets that someone believes are still worth killing for. As Stetko races to find the killer before he finds her, winter is already closing in. In the deadly Antarctic whiteout, she won't see him till he's a breath away. Also starring Gabriel Macht (The Spirit) and based on the graphic novel by Greg Rucka.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Kate Beckinsale is as lovely as ever, and does her best with the material, but moribund pacing and an uninspired plot leave Whiteout in the cold.

South Pole-set whodunnit is bloody but bland.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this wintry murder mystery based on a graphic novel involves grisly violence, including autopsy sequences, blood-spurting wounds, and more. There's also some adult material related to sexuality and drinking, but it's glossed over fairly swiftly in favor of murder and mayhem. Expect a good bit of strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t")
