    Synopsis


    Wing Commander
    Based on a popular series of video games, Wing Commander introduces us to an elite fighter squadron in the year 2654. The Earth confederation is at war with a vicious race called the Kilrathi. The Kilrathi have captured a navigational device which will allow them to jump through worm-holes in space to arrive behind enemy lines. Only this highly trained squadron, led by three young pilots, stand in their way. Christopher "Maverick" Blair (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is just out of the Academy, but his lack of experience is more than compensated by his exceptional navigational skills, though he is still haunted by the deaths of his parents in a previous galactic war. His friend, Todd "Maniac" Mashall (Matthew Lillard), is a brash, gung-ho fighter jock always rushing into danger. Their wing commander and leader is Jeanette "Angel" Deveraux (Saffron Burrows). Assigned these two new pilots by Admiral Geoffery Tolwyn (David Warner), the strong and beautiful Deveraux is at first resentful, but later develops feelings for Blair. Perhaps the two will find time for romance on their way to saving the solar system. ~ Ron Wells, Rovi

      Based on a computer game of the 90's, this movie is hard to rate. Although it has a simplistic story line, unremarkable acting and poor portrayal of the alien protagonist, it is enjoyable over and over. It possesses the visceral qualities that make you cheer for the good guys time and time again.

      For evey Sci-Fi fan, I think you will really appreciate the concept of this movie. Although they could have invested at little more money and time regarding the visuals of the enemy, overall the movie was well worth my time.
