Reviewer : LLAMAGOAT Rating : 2
Review : True, this movie's plot is quite absurd, however it does have some redeeming qualities. Specifically, the character interactions are quite good. I enjoyed all of the bad puns they put in. I think that people don't enjoy this movie as much because it doesn't have the same feel as a Star Trek movie. So, in my opinion, Star Trek V is an average movie and a below average Star Trek flick.
Reviewer : Guybrush Rating : 2
Review : Some of the best scenes ever witter for the Kirk, Spock, McCoy triad save an otherwise completely worthless installment in the Trek film franchise. Also running against this film is the knowledge that its failure could be in part responsible for the nixing of the original cast one film later.
Reviewer : Bob Rating : 1
Review : Yes, it's bad. Here's the movie in a nutshell: Kirk falls off a mountain, Spock gets an evil brother with a goatee, the rest of the crew are brainwashed, the Enterprise, despite being "put together by monkeys", gets to the center of the galaxy in less than a day's travel, the Great Barrier which apparently no starship can negotiate turned out to be not much of an obstacle at all, and everyone acts incredibly stilted and out of character, especially in scenes that are supposed to be "funny". Oh, also, Sulu and Chekov act really creepy. However, you have to give some credit to the actors who did the best they could with the terrible material they had. The visual effects are poor - El Capitan was a styrofoam wall, the shuttle crashlanding was badly done, the Bird of Prey's disruptor cannon looked like an amateur effort, and the Enterprise warp effects almost comical. But The Final Frontier does have a few things going for it. For one, we get some nice scenes of the inseparable trio on their camping trip, bonding over a hearty campfire. We also get a fantastic soundtrack by the great Jerry Goldsmith, with the TMP theme at its most majestic, and the Klingon theme as highly energetic as it should be. Those redeeming qualities aside, this movie is, to put it bluntly, a poorly scripted, poorly directed film that even Gene Roddenberry considered to be apocryphal. That would be a fair enough warning.
Reviewer : Satan Rating : 0
Review : This movie is crap, plain and simple. "The Search for God" was just a horrible plot line for a Star Trek film, and the directing didn't exactly help either. And how can the Enterprise make a 25,000 light-year trip to the center of the Galaxy when the much faster (and more advanced) Voyager needs 30 years to make the trip. All in all, I really don't feel this movie has any redeeming features, just a total flop.
Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 0
Review : If I were writing the novelization of this, I would end the second last chapter 'And then Kirk woke up'. I really want everything that happened in this film to be a dream, because some of it is so bad, it's almost funny. Yes there were a few good bits, with the interaction between Kirk, Spock and McCoy being the most notable. However, Sybok and his strange followers, some form of mental power that just doesn't really work on our heroes (although it does tell us something about them), Uhura's fan dance, flying to the centre of the galaxy, a (?Led Zeppelin-inspired?) 'Turboshaft to Heaven' and a god that turns out to be God knows what, what is it all supposed to be? "The Nth Degree" gave us the Cytherians as a possible explanation, but I wish this film would just be a bad dream. "The Way to Eden" was a terrible episode, so why use it as a starting point? So, the question is, does the odd bit of clever writing win it back a star? Nah!
