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.

Excruciatingly earnest yet convictionless.
Though the ingredients are potent, their blending here mostly comes off as formulaic, humdrum and sometimes unintentionally laughable.
As the movie transforms into a video game -- with a faux John Williams score to boot -- the human element turns corny, then laughable.
Wing Commander is based on a video game and has roughly the same degree of character development. That is all most moviegoers will need to know.
The plot has all the depth and originality of a video game without the fun of the interactivity.
Things get truly dispiriting when the character dramas recede and the spark provided by Lillard and Holder goes out, leaving us only one incomprehensible battle after another.
One of the most kitschy adaptation of a video game to film, and one of the biggest box office failures ever. [Full review in Spanish]
Cliched sci-fi movie has slow pace, gratuitous sex talk.
One of the lousiest and tedious science fiction entries of the late nineties...
Playing up the military angle is the best move, but this and some excellent incidental effects can't completely disguise the shortcomings.
[Features a] poor script, one-dimensional characters and abysmal dialogue.
At the risk of sounding repetitive, I feel angry that I have wasted a perfectly good Friday night watching something this completely worthless.
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.
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.
Freddie Prinze and Matthew Lillard? BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
