Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Succeeds in creating a languid, almost hypnotic portrait of go-nowhere, do-nothing peacetime military life."
‑ David Cornelius,
"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."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Brilliantly told and will remain with you as you leave the theatre."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"A jack of all formulas and master of none."
‑ Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
""Guy X" wins the prize for most boring, pointless and disappointing war movie of the year."
‑ Angela Baldassarre,
"While there's an enjoyable subversive atmosphere, the story simply isn't sharp enough to mean much of anything"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A political black comedy without the bite of the classic military satires it tries to emulate."
‑ Jay Weissberg, Variety
"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."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"A film which lingers and haunts, but never compels."
‑ Nev Pierce,
