Though he's supposed to be transferred to Hawaii, Rudy is instead thrown out of a plane on a quasi-vacant airstrip in an unspecified location. He hits his head, loses consciousness, and comes … More

Critic Reviews for Guy X

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

A movie that doesn't know whether it is slapstick comedy, satire, mystery or a schlock horror flick. Whatever it is, it is highly derivative, and of little consequence.

A jack of all formulas and master of none.

A political black comedy without the bite of the classic military satires it tries to emulate.

Succeeds in creating a languid, almost hypnotic portrait of go-nowhere, do-nothing peacetime military life.

Audience Reviews for Guy X


Strange, but altogether intriguing. The story of a soldier transferred to Greenland instead of Hawaii and the impossibility of escape.

When I saw Jason Biggs, I didn't expect much but he wasn't too bad in here. Sure, the movie itself is based upon a book I suspect that is aimed at mocking the whole idea of transfer errors.

There, in Greenland is base Quarratanga [sp?] - pretty much somewhere where soldiers go 'cause they've screwed up too many times to simply useless. Up there, they load and unload cargo that flies there every once in a while.

When, set soldier [Biggs] accidentally walks into a terrible secret...then things start to get really interesting.

Sarcastic at times, gritty and possibly miserable at others. A bizarre film, no doubt...because you'd expect nothing to happen and yet it does.


This film probably would have been a lot better if it could make up it's mind as to exactly what it is: one minute it's trying to be Buffalo Soldiers, the next some Military thriller involving something that's never actually explained. And as the film doesn't take either of these seriously it fails on both accounts.

It was different that I had thought it would be with a little more serious parts. I wouldn't go as far as to say that it was something special though, because it had some really slow parts.
