Movie Info

This loose update of John Griesemer's biting and satirical 2001 anti-war novel No One Thinks of Greenland features American Pie starrer Jason Biggs as Corporal Rudy Spruance, a young man enlisted in the U.S. military in the late 1970s, at the height of the Cold War between the States and the Soviet Union. 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

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.

"Guy X" wins the prize for most boring, pointless and disappointing war movie of the year.

January 24, 2006 Full Review Source:

Guy X could be the weirdest failure of the year. It's also not for anyone prone to soft-tissue neck injury, so abruptly does it switch gears from one movie to another.

Jason Biggs (doomed to have some variation of the words 'pie-botherer' in every article ever written about him thanks to the American Pie movies) makes a successful leap from comedy to drama here.

While there's an enjoyable subversive atmosphere, the story simply isn't sharp enough to mean much of anything

Shadows on the Wall

A film which lingers and haunts, but never compels.

October 22, 2005 Full Review Source:

Brilliantly told and will remain with you as you leave the theatre.

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.
