“Well, there's three hours I'll never get back”
Debug is a 2014 direct-to-DVD documentary film following the day-to-day activities of a man debugging code. No seriously, that's it. It was written and directed by David Hewlett and stars David Hewlett.
In 2010, David Hewlett, writer and director of Debug, was suffering due to lack of employment. He decided to revive a project he had shelved due to dedicating his entire life to Stargate Atlantis. He got out his laptop and began writing the script. It took him 2 years to finish it. In November 2012, Hewlett ordered a massive set to be built at the Bridge Studios in Vancouver. After a month of staring at the stage that used to house the Atlantis set, he finally went about creating the Debug set. The set took a total of 3 days to complete. Filming began in January 2013 at the Bridge Studios and lasted a day. The set was de-constructed a day after filming. In February 2013, Hewlett ordered that music be made for his film. The music took a year and a bit to complete and in July 2014, the music for his film was ready. The film was released in November 2014.
More like Hewlett has lost the plot with this film. Anyway, the documentary follows a man called Rodney McKay who has lost his job because he has killed everyone in the Pegasus galaxy with a nuclear bomb. He is ordered to return to Earth where he is stripped of his honours. He manages to get a job at a programming firm in Vancouver. The rest of the film follows McKay debugging some code. For 3 fucking hours. What a waste of time for the viewers at home. Soon after, he discovers the code makes absolutely no sense at all and he wakes up in the Ancient chair on Atlantis, only to discover that while he was in a simulation all that time, Colonel Sheppard has been shagging McKay's girlfriend, Jennifer Keller. The film ends with McKay killing Sheppard and him getting sent back to Earth anyway for murder, only to get a job at a programming firm where he has to debug some code. Basically the entire film is one massive foreshadow.
edit Critical Reception
The film has been critically received by viewers. It has been widely criticized due to the fact Hewlett stole sets from Stargate Universe. Other people have said it's an absolute piece of shit, stating "No one wants to sit down for 3 hours watching a guy at a desk debugging code. Who made this shit?".
