It's not long now until the WC Movie is available to rent in the UK, so now reviews are starting to appear. Here's one from today's copy of The Sun newspaper:
WING COMMANDER (PG):Tch. "Kilarthi" and "2564." Despite the various little mistakes in the review, it obtained the highest rating this week.
The hit computer game has been turned into a special-effects adventure that is sure to keep children more than happy on a miserable winter's day.
It is set in 2564 and Earth is caught in a brutal war with the Kilarthi, a vicious, bloodthirsty alien race.
They have captured a computer which they are planning to use to jump behind enemy lines and destroy the planet.
Freddie Prinze Jr and Matthew Lillard star as a couple of space pilots who set out to see off the Kilarthi and save the world.
Out to rent on monday (Fox Pathe).
Rating: 7 out of 10
Says Lucy Stultus. Mums! Are your offspring driving you beyond the levels of socially-permitted abnormal behaviour with their petulance and whining? Don't you just wish that there was a wholesome and cheap form of entertainment could divert their hyperactive minds for more than three minutes? Then perhaps you should consider visiting Jacques, performance artist par excellence. With his traditional blanched face and bobbly hat, Jacques will keep them quiet for ages with his repertoire of classic mime, such as 'Man walking in the wind', 'Where did these walls come from?', and 'The Rape of the Sabine Women'. Don't delay, see Jacques today!
