3.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the Kilrathi? Feb. 19 2001
As a diehard Wing Commander fan, I had been anticipating this movie long before it had come out. Constantly going to websites almost daily to see how it was coming along. Unfortunately once it was finally released and I heard the terrible reviews, I decided not to go see it. This might seem strange to many of you, but as a hardcore fan I did not want to be disappointed as many other Wing Commander fans were.
Recently I saw the movie when a close friend of mine bought it on video. Although I was prepared for the worst, I was pleasantly surprised. I now definitely think that the critics were too hard on this film.
Not as good as the Star Wars series, upon which the games were totally inspired and loosely modeled, to me this film still stood on its own. What made the movie worthy of this position? Well it was the space battles. Watching large cap ships fighting with each other and small fighter craft zinging between them was very cool. All the battles were done in the unique way that only the wing commander universe could do them. Also the fine cast of actors (minus Freddie) made the non-battle scenes at least watchable. My favorites were Maniac and the captain guy who died.
One of my mixed feelings regarding this movie was that it did not follow the games closer. While I understand why Chris Roberts did it, the whole "Space Pilgrims" thing, came off awkward and rather cheesy. It was as if he wanted to put in something like Luke Skywalker's "Force" powers. Unfortunely the Pilgrim power took out any sort reason to worry about any of the characters, especially Blair. Even with the different storyline, I had no doubt that everything would be fine at the end because our hero had supernatural space powers to help him.

1.0 out of 5 stars homocide by movie makers July 9 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I thought this was one of the dumbest most trite movies I have ever seen in my life. The Lildard guy has one note as an actor--the slightly stupid surfer dude who is outrageous and loveable. He has played this same character is several other movies; all they do is change his name and the scenery. The special effect were so hackneyed that I was surprised that this movie was made in the late nineties. It looked and felt like it was created in the late eighties. The plot was predictable. The baddie aliens were predictable. This movie tries to kill the science fiction movie genre. Someone should stop this writer/director before they kill again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too bad I can't give it a 0 Nov. 3 2000
By Spooty
Format:VHS Tape
I had great expectations of this movie. I had heard such wonderful things about the series of games of the same title, I expected a truly good movie. An engaging space opera about combat and the pilots engaged in it. Instead I lost $3.00 renting this. There is a 5-step method to watching this movie.
1.) Rent it.
2.) Place it in VCR
3.) Watch it.
4.) Stop convulsing from massive seizure caused by movie's moronic content.
5.) Return movie and demand refund.
Nuff said.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Can Grow On You. Aug. 16 2002
At first this movie is hokey with aliens that look like a low budget film. You follow along with the hotshot pilots that are defending the earth against alien invaders...sound familiar...
But, if you can get beyond the appearance and the beginning, this turns into a fairly good story.
Freddie Prinze Jr. is one of the hotshot pilots. He is the son of Settlers, early humans that ventured into space colonizing other planets. Because Settlers and earth humans engaged in a war in the past, a lot of hatred is still harbored against anyone with Settlers' blood. Because of this hatred, he keeps this aspect a secret. As the story unfolds, we learn that Settlers' have an instinctive 'feel' for space travel. This special ability will clearly give Freddie Prinze Jr. an advantage as he survives against higher odds. As he encounters Saffron Barrows, his wing commander, he learns to how to trust others as he also falls in love.
One added feature, the DVD version has excellent surround sound for the attack scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Special Effects Takes the Cake April 12 2002
By J.D.
There are over 250 special effects shots in "Wing Commander". If you base the movie just on the effects, then you're in for a ride. Now, if you base it on the plot and the acting, well, you might as well grab a pillow. Freddie Prinze Jr. plays Blair, is a Pilgrim, a descendant of the first space explorers who have a keen sense of the galaxy. So, he is given a weird look every time he is on the flight deck. His friend, Marshall, played by Matthew Lillard, is the usual testosterone driven ace pilot. They are the main characters as they fight the evil Kilrathi, yet another race who wants to take over the universe.
Add tons of special effects, and you've got some of the best battle scenes of the year. The storyline, though, is bland and predictable, and the acting talent is wasted. Talent such as Tcheky Karyo and Saffron Burrows should not be in such a mediocre film. Even if their talent is wasted, their talent is obvious as they are the best acting of the movie, no matter how small their parts are. There is also mediocrity behind the camera, as Chris Roberts, the force behind all things Wing Commander, directs his first feature film. Yet again, something that shouldn't have been. Roberts shows no enthusiasm and does nothing especially different.
"Wing Commander" is a decent film, with decent acting, and extrordinary special effects.

Wing Commander is like a SyFy/Asylum movie with a better budget. Same crappy acting, story, production and directing, just better F/X, which still aren't all that good. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Tchéky Karyo
Worth watching to see Tchéky Karyo as "Paladin". It's a shame he doesn't get to play an even stronger part in the movie.
