These actors, alas, are at the service of a submoronic script and special effects that look like a video game writ large.
Though this could be the meat of a good space story, the combat scenes are weak variations of the games.
It is a fairly shallow action movie and it delivers on that level with plenty of action, engaging characters, competent acting, good pacing, good spec ..
Wing Commander looks like it was put together by people who couldnt agree on whether or not the year 2564 would be colored with red bulbs and fluoresc ..
As the movie transforms into a video game with a faux John Williams score to boot the human element turns corny, then laughable.
And, of course, the latex suited, whisker faced costumes dont do much to help.
Playing up the military angle is the best move, but this and some excellent incidental effects cant completely disguise the shortcomings.
One of the lousiest and tedious science fiction entries of the late nineties...
Things get truly dispiriting when the character dramas recede and the spark provided by Lillard and Holder goes out, leaving us only one incomprehensi ..
Wing Commander is such a mind numbing, awful, embarrassing, idiotic, corny, ludicrous, laughable, superficial, just plain bad, movie that I almost cou ..

My, what a field day Mike Nelson and his robot pals would have had with this prime piece of sci fi schlock.
Mr Brown Movies
The plot has all the depth and originality of a video game without the fun of the interactivity.
A completely vapid, special effects reel that would make a pretty nice screensaver for a computer, but as far as a 90 minute movie, it can lean somewh ..
This dopey sci fi/action movie features robotic acting, amateurish direction and inconsistent (and sometimes laughable) special effects.
The director hasnt a clue what an establishing shot is, though, so when we are finally treated to a little bit of action, theres no way to tell whos d ..
Tcheky Karyo, however, is terrific in a role that doesnt really test his acting mettle.
As an action film, Wing Commander lacks any original ideas of its own.
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.
I think kids will love this picture...I enjoyed myself too, half the time drawn into the film, half the time laughing at it.
But I dont recommend trying that at our own Garrett 8 Cinemas; Faith just isnt in the mood.

Listen, heres whats wrong with Wing Commander: it is dead dull, boring and predictable filled with stereotyped characters.

Its a film where nothing makes sense and the filmmakers dont care.
Scientific fact: the universe is a big vacuum. Scientific corollary: Wing Commander sucks.
His personality is like one of those bright colored cars: fast on the road but overfilled with fuel.
I would recommend avoiding this cosmic accident even in the video bargain bins.
Wing Commander incorporates a few new twists on the space movie genre.
One of the most kitschy adaptation of a video game to film, and one of the biggest box office failures ever.
