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.

Excruciatingly earnest yet convictionless.

Though the ingredients are potent, their blending here mostly comes off as formulaic, humdrum and sometimes unintentionally laughable.

[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.

As an action film, Wing Commander lacks any original ideas of its own.

Wing Commander incorporates a few new twists on the space-movie genre.

I liked the unpretentiousness of it all.

It is a fairly shallow action movie and it delivers on that level with plenty of action, engaging characters, competent acting, good pacing, good special effects and a solid plot.

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.

These actors, alas, are at the service of a submoronic script and special effects that look like a video game writ large.
