Storyline

US Army Corporal Rudy Spruance arrives at a remote American military base at Qangattarsa, Greenland - located somewhere above the Arctic Circle - just before the summer solstice in June, 1979. Beyond a two day out of the year environmental occurrence which negatively affects his arrival, his reaction to which he will probably be forever best remembered by his fellow GI's at Qangattarsa, Rudy faces two problems: he is not supposed to be there, his next assignment which was supposed to be at a base in Hawaii; and he cannot convince anyone at Qangattarsa that he is not Corporal Martin Pederson, who is the GI assigned to this posting. Based on the paperwork at the base, Rudy learns that Pederson is a model soldier - an army brat - whereas he himself only enlisted as it was better than the alternative of jail. Lieutenant-Colonel Lane Woolwrap, the base's long time commanding officer, has long wanted a person in Pederson's position as the base's Public Information Officer, aka the head ... Written by Huggo

What the Eff?
7 October 2008 | by VJReeJrSee all my reviews

I kept expecting a pay-off in this film; it never happened. It never really made any sense. It reminded me of a really bad X-files episode. Even Alien3 was more engaging than this.

However, Natasha McElhorne is hot (as usual) and her femininity is the only thing worth watching in this film. Even Michael Ironside - such a magnetic actor - is underutilized in this film. Otherwise, everyone else seems like they were hung over the day after a frat party with a great deal of drinking.

Sadly, this is not a good movie even though it seems like it ... just ... might ... make it, but doesn't. Maybe it should be redone with different actors and a much different director.
