Wing Commander, another film that received a lot more hate than it deserved, some people went as far as to say it’s the worst film they ever watched, hardly. Surely they haven’t seen some of the drekk on Action Channel.
This film delivered exactly what I wanted from a Sci-Fi film, action, unstoppable aliens, last desperate act to save the human race. I don't know what people expected when they went to see this, Hamlet perhaps?
The film follows the same basic plot as the games, following the early adventures of Christopher Blair (FPJ), anyone who has played the games will recognise the characters, and will follow the story fairly quickly. People unfamiliar with the games, should not worry either, as the film stands on its own fairly well.
One thing that has always stood out for me is the soundtrack, it’s fantastic. The special effects were fairly well done, and the acting on par with what you would expect of a Sci-fi film of this type.
The film is not perfect, there is a lot of problems with it, for one, the "science" is a bit iffy, and they didn’t show nearly enough of the catlike Kilrathi, but overall I really enjoyed this film, I was a BIG fan of the games, and maybe that has made be biased, but I think this film deserved more than it received, and is better than most people will admit.

Never played the game, but that's absolutely not necessary in order to enjoy the movie.
A very good movie which is extremely under-rated. One South African film critic in particular, gave the movie a rating of 0, which I thought was a load of crap.
Not for anyone who doesn't like sci-fi, but if you do, don't miss out on this!
