Delance sent us a whole bunch of links and assorted stuffs for the Brazilian Movie release (primarily in Portuguese). We'll just run down the list here.
Another movie site in Brazil. It's old, has some pics including a WCIV tolwyn: here
The official site for the Brazilian distributor of WCIV(with portuguese subtitles): here
It's also mentioned in article about SW that it's too dumb to translate: here
(The first movie review, negative as expected. This is from one of the Brazilian main newspapers, O Globo. At least he didn't compare it with other computer game movies. He is wrong in his statement about the fans...) 1 of 5 (sleeping) Wing Commander by Tom Leão "A game that doesn't change level" The space adventure "Wing Commander" (released today on Rio Sul 1 and circuit) is the cinema recreation of one of the most famous computer space combat games. However, the game is much more dynamic and interesting than the movie, despite the fact it was directed by the creator of the games, Chris Roberts. The Confederation (us) faces the threat of the Kilrathi, an alien race (that looks like poorly articulated Ninja Turtles with a cat face) that intend to invade Earth which results in some space battles (the only point of interest in the movie). And that's it. The rest is a rain of cliches, that would be even tolerable if it weren't the amateurish performance of the main actors. The teen actor of the moment, Freddie Prinze Jr. (she's all that), for example, is laughable on the dramatic moments. The bottom line is, prefer the computer screen to the cinema. Or rent the legitimate space war trash "Starship Troopers". Not even the fans are going to stand this. (Note: Episode 1, TPM got 2 ratings, 1/5 and 2/5. Thomas Crown also got 1/5.)
Delance also notes that Wing Commander is opening in 8 theaters in Rio, which is not bad, considering that "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Eyes Wide Shut" are being released at the same time.
