Someone forgot the story
23 August 2005 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Dear oh dear oh dear.

About a US Army base in Greenland, this film could have been a winner.

Instead, due to the lack of an engaging storyline, it is pretty dull.

When the film ends, your reaction is likely to be "is that it?".

Some good performances and pretty well filmed for a low budget film, but I'd say an average day at work is more interesting than this.

The film is nowhere near as meaningful, funny, poignant or satirical as it thinks it is, instead it merely takes nearly two hours to tell a story which could easily have been well told in 30 minutes

I saw the UK premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival and I'd be very surprised if Guy X sets the UK box office alight when it is released in October.
