Product Description

You didn't think Mr. Spock was really dead, did you? When Spock's casket landed on the surface of the Genesis planet at the end of Star Trek II, we had already been told that Genesis had the power to bring "life from lifelessness." So it's no surprise that this energetic but somewhat hokey sequel gives Spock a new lease on life, beginning with his rebirth and rapid growth as the Genesis planet literally shakes itself apart in a series of tumultuous geological spasms. As Kirk is getting to know his estranged son (Merritt Butrick), he must also do battle with the fiendish Klingon Kruge (Christopher Lloyd), who is determined to seize the power of Genesis from the Federation. Meanwhile, the regenerated Spock returns to his home planet, and Star Trek III gains considerable interest by exploring the ceremonial (and, of course, highly logical) traditions of Vulcan society. The movie's a minor disappointment compared to Star Trek II, but it's a--well, logical--sequel that successfully restores Spock (and first-time film director Leonard Nimoy) to the phenomenal Trek franchise...as if he were ever really gone. With Kirk's willful destruction of the U.S.S. Enterprise and Robin Curtis replacing the departing Kirstie Alley as Vulcan Lt. Saavik, this was clearly a transitional film in the series, clearing the way for the highly popular Star Trek IV. --Jeff Shannon

Special Features

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock follows the same winning formula of the first two Star Trek special-edition DVD releases, although it has no extra footage as The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan did. The first disc presents the film with an audio commentary track, the bulk of it handled (appropriately) by director Leonard Nimoy. He doesn't do it in character as Spock, but rather chortles and gushes about his cast and crew, especially William Shatner. Other contributors include Robin Curtis, who explains how Nimoy and writer Harve Bennett made it easy for her to take over Kirstie Alley's role as Saavik. There's also a subtitled commentary track full of trivia and details by Michael Okuda, joined this time by wife Denise. If you want, you can listen to the audio commentary while reading the subtitled commentary. The second disc offers the basic "Captain's Log" documentary (2002, 26 min.) plus substantial documentaries about models, creatures, and Klingon and Vulcan languages and costumes. Last, in "Terraforming and the Prime Directive," scientists discuss how a Genesis-like project could lead to humans colonizing Mars. --David Horiuchi

It's a classic, all my favorite actors and a good story. It's got the original feel to it(1968 TO 1970 TV SERIES), nothing complicated and fun to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars the power of family Sept. 25 2011
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
star trek 3 was the crew going back to genesis to retrieve their dead friend spock. this movie showed their loyalty to spock and their determanation to not let any one stop them. christopher lloyd was excellent as commander kruge the klingon commander. this one was more character driven than wrath of khan but it,s hard to top khan. this shows the power and loyalty of family.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than number two (3.5/5) Aug. 17 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
this Star trek installment is better than the previous one.i liked the story more.i thought it was interesting and well written.i also feel that this movie was better paced than the last one and it maintains that pace,mostly.the only time it slows down is toward the end,when it becomes more dramatic.but these end scenes are also well written and compelling.it seemed to flow better,for the most part.there is not a lot of action,but what action there is,is quite good.the special effects are also quite good in this movie,considering it was released in 1984.the characters also have more to do in this one,than in both previous movies,in my opinion.i still feel that it could have been improved,but there are no glaring problems.i do wish though that a few of the secondary characters would have been developed more.but i don't consider that a glaring problem.all in all,not a bad effort. for me Star Trek 3: The search for Spock is a 3.5/5

Another classic trek movie, this one taking place directly after the famous Spock death scene in Wrath of Khan. But Spock was just so hip and cool in his stiff, emotionless, Spock-ish(??) way that they had to bring him back. And Kirk and the boys do it in style.
The story is basically this: Ambassador Sarek (Spock's father) comes up to Kirk and makes it known to him that his essence may be living within a crew member of the Enterprise. They discover it is McCoy (which is hilarious, considering Spock and McCoy's quirky friendship), which explains why many in StarFleet thought he had been driven insane, and locked him up for it. Kirk and the boys spring McCoy out of the cell, steal the Enterprise, and head into space on "personal matters."
Even if this movie lacked in action, which is does not at all, it would have plenty in hilarious dialogue. There are many examples, such as when McCoy tries to hire a mercenary at a bar (very reminiscent of the Star Wars cantina, clientele et al). McCoy tells him, "Place I name, money I go." And the perterbed alien (eerily reminiscent of George C. Scott and Dr. Evil) fires back, "Place you name, money I name or else bargainnnnnnno." It hilarious the way he says it. Another funny part comes when Sulu jokingly prods a bored Federation security guard, "Keeping you busy?", the guard slowly, menacingly stands up from his chair, towering over the short Sulu and says, "Don't get smart, tiny." It isn't so much what they say that's funny, it's the body language and the intonations, brought out in full by first-rate directing by Leonard Nimoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars I thought this was pretty good. July 6 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I'm not a Kirstie Alley fan, but I thought that 'Search for Spock' was a decent follow up to 'Wrath of Khan' (Which had me in tears the first time I watched it - I was eleven). A few of the parts were sort of slow (like when the planet is breaking up), but overall I thought that 'Search for Spock' was an acceptable film, if only to find out what exactly happened to Spock after 'Wrath of Khan'. Worth a rent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spock Returns in Third Trek Film June 11 2003
Format:DVD
After the success of Nicholas Meyer's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, it soon became apparent that the Trek franchise could continue, with or without Spock. Despite rumors to the contrary, Leonard Nimoy had never stipulated in his contract for Star Trek II that Spock be killed off. According to Nimoy (as revealed in a "the making of" featurette), the actor really did think that the second film would be the finale of the Star Trek movies, so why not have Spock go out in a blaze of glory?
However, even before production ended on The Wrath of Khan, Nimoy and producer Harve Bennett decided that "there were always possibilities" for the future, both for the franchise and Spock.
Thus it came to pass that Star Trek III: The Search for Spock had its, pun intended, genesis. With a subtle scene here and a more upbeat ending there, several plot strands were left unresolved....what did Spock mean when he gave Dr. McCoy a mind meld with the word "Remember?" Why was he left on the Genesis Planet? Those two scenes, coupled with Nimoy reciting "Space: The Final Frontier" at the end of the second movie practically screamed "Sequel Ahead!"
As it happened, Star Trek III would also mark Nimoy's feature-film directorial debut. Although he was given a modest budget - which does, unfortunately, become obvious in many scenes - Nimoy fared fairly well his first time out as a director.
As in the movie that follows (The Voyage Home), Bennett and Nimoy give us a mix of adventure, suspense and even moments of comedy in the continuation of a three-movie story arc.
The setup is simple. After the events depicted in Star Trek II, the USS Enterprise has been ordered back to Earth. Spock is dead, the Enterprise's trainee crew has been reassigned, and Starfleet has quarantined the Genesis planet.
