Wing Commander | 1999 | PG-13 | - 3.5.4

Based on the popular video game of the same name, military pilots try to destroy an alien fleet heading toward Earth with the intent to overtake the human race. With Freddie Prinze Jr., Matthew Lillard, Saffron Burrows, Jurgen Prochnow, Tcheky Karyo, Ginny Holder, David Warner and David Suchet. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo (including a reference to masturbation). Two kisses, one is passionate. A clothed man and a scantily clad woman are seen snuggling in bed, obviously post-coital.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Many aircraft are shot and we see them explode. An aircraft is bombed several times; people are knocked down and we see a few small fires on board. A pilot crash-lands and apparently dies. Gunfire is exchanged in two scenes; a few people and aliens are shot, but we don't see any blood. A woman threatens a man with a gun. Two men have bloody cuts on their heads and one man has blood running down his chin and in his mouth. A man shoves another.

LANGUAGE 4 - A few anatomical references (plus several slang terms), many scatological references, several mild obscenities and a couple insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Space exploration and travel, war, death, prejudice, friendship, loyalty, loss of parents.

MESSAGE - Never give up, even when the odds are against you.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
