->The créme of the crap in Uwe Boll's abysmal resumé, a film so bad the worst part comes ''before'' the camera even starts running. For a film that is called ''Alone In The Dark'', barely ever is anyone alone at any given time. What constitutes "horror" in this film is turning the light switches on and off again, as well as casting Tara Reid as a scientist. This film is the very reason we list Uwe Boll as the #1 Worst Director in Hollywood.

->If ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' was the first nail in the coffin of movies based on video games, then ''Wing Commander'' was the last because, believe me, nobody ''ever'' took video game movies seriously after this [[FranchiseKiller complete and utter ruination]] of gaming's best original sci-fi saga. They shoulda just saved themselves a heap of trouble and put some kid's LP of ''Wing Commander IV'' in theaters. ([[BoxOfficeBomb Woulda made a lot more money.]])

->After watching this, in mounting aghastment, I've now realized why it's so bad. It's because it's good. Unfortunately, what it's good at is being a movie of a computer game. If you've played your way through the TR games you'll realize that. The atmosphere of the locations, the way Lara runs and fires, the traps ... someone sat through all the games, taking notes. It's truer to the feel of the games than most novel-based movies are to the original novel. Time and care was spent on that. Then, since the games have no characterization, or any plot much above the level of "get all the bits", they pasted together an inconsistent load of old garbage in twenty minutes and hoped the SFX would carry it. They don't.

->The answer really is simple: What is the best video game movie? It hasn't been made yet.

->They tried to apply characters and a plot to this? It's ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}''! People play ''DOOM'' to get away from talking. We only liked it because it was all about blowing stuff up REAL GOOD. The game was made during an era when people didn't care a kangaroo's nipple about plots in a first-person shooter. In fact, at the first sign of plot or text screens, our left hands would jerk spasmodically to the ESC key SO WE COULD GET BACK TO THE SHOOTING.
