Nothing like a good Government Conspiracy type movie that takes place in Alaska and stars Jason Biggs!

A Modern day Catch 22
Bennet Pomerantz | Seabrook, Maryland | 10/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In someone would want to remake the 1970's film Catch-22, Alan Arkin's role should be played by Jason Biggs. WAIT A SECOND, Guy-X is so similar to Arkin's Catch-22 that you feel this new tale of the modern day miltary is so similar to the classic film.

Biggs's Rudy is an everyman to the wonders that this black comedy avails to miltary life. Guy X pokes a stick at a baying miltary and its red tape. This film does not let up, when coming to their biting satire. As Catch-22 and M*A*S*H poked fun at other styles of the miltary life and SNUFUS. This comedy similar to those and the films Buffalo Soldiers and Jarhead , which showcases how screwed up our miltary is.

This film is cute in spots. It is also sharp and to the point regarding our miltary

Pretty good if you watch in the right mood

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Beware: a few spoilers here...

I realize that the term "dark comedy" doesn't mean a barrel of laughs, so I wasn't expecting that. There are a few funny moments, however. Jason Biggs is underrated in this film, as it's a quality departure from the American Pie antics that made him famous.

More should have been shown of the conspiracy aspect with the Vietnam vets in the "ward." Throwing in a flashback or two to their experience in Vietnam would have explained a lot, although being an indie movie, the producer probably just didn't have the budget.

The film ends with very little closure, and the practically impossible idea that the the Soldiers could just fly off to other installations and assume the identities of random high-ranking officers. Seems like another case in which Hollywood makes the US Military look like a disorganized bunch of buffoons... whether they were trying to or not.

Overall, this is an interesting, well-acted film that had so much potential... until it was made."
A Throwback Film, Nicely Acted and Performed
Todd and In Charge | Miami, FL | 10/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you are hankering for an old-fashioned, liberal anti-establishment War film, ala M.A.S.H. or "Catch-22," or even "Kelley's Heroes," you have found the right film. The tone here captures the comically languid, pointless, and sometimes idiotic role of government and the war machine, matched with a muckraking Jason Biggs and his band of misfits as they battle a despotic, fascist base commander. Throw in a beautiful love interest and a Pentagon coverup and you have an entertaining, admirable near-miss that will leave you satisfied you watched the whole thing, and possibly a bit more than that."
