Wing Commander

Critics Consensus

The low budget may explain Wing Commander's cheesy special effects, but can't excuse the lame dialogue or the movie's obsessive reliance on sci-fi cliches.

    Feeble sci fi based on a computer game, which was actually more convincing, and had bigger stars (Malcolm McDowell and Mark Hamill, vs. Jurgen Prochnow and that bloke who was in...erm , that thing, you know....) Tries to be Top Gun in space, but manages to be even more cliched and simplistic. And the aliens are bollocks.

    Some games don't lead themselves to the world of Cinema, this is not one of them, but with the cast they chose they might as well called it Scream Next Summer In Space.

    Sure its crappy if you want it to be, but were you expecting an Oscar winner? Just enjoy!

    This movie based on a video game SUCKS!!! This movie is ridiculous and the storyline might just as well be from a 1950's B movie. The dialogue is awful, the acting worse, and the supposedly futuristic spacecraft looked like they were bought from a studio auctioning off props from old World War II movies. The characters are extremely well crafted in the game series, well, for a video game series anyway. Here, they come off as a bunch of tired clichés. Also, I take issue with the fact that Blair, the main character, is some kind of chosen one with special powers.
