A subplot about a traitor was cut from the film. However, toy manufacturer X-Toys made and distributed the "Pilgrim Traitor" action figure. It comes with a mask hiding the traitor's face. When the mask is removed, the identity of the traitor is reveled: Admiral Wilson. See more »
In Admiral Tolwyn's communication to Capt. Sansky, the Admiral's name is listed as "ADMIRAL TOWLYN." While this sort of thing could normally be chalked up to human error, spelling such a high ranking official's name wrong would probably subject a soldier to severe punishment. See more »
[after Rosie completes a barrel roll the second before landing]
Now that was a sweet 360!
Actually, that was a 540.
Did you just do that to impress me?
I'm just trying to redirect some of that testosterone. You're a total... Maniac.

A fun ride, not a serious one. A must for all fans of the game.
The film has been critically panned and it bombed at the cinemas. But it's actually a pretty good film. Yes it isn't technically the best, nor is it scientifically plausible. And for devotees of the games it kinda screws with history, but for all that it is a good ride. You watch it and appreciate it. Saffron Burrows is great. David Warner and David Suchet excel in their (small) roles. It's a shame John Rhys-Davis and Mark Hamill don't reprise their roles, but their replacements do well enough.
You get caught up in the story, and the visual effects are fantastic, aided by good acting with the actors working well together.
So overall I would recommend this film. Don't expect it to be fantastic, but just enjoy it. It's a fun film and a worthy addition to Wing Commander lore.
