Product Description

Amazon.ca

Movie critic Roger Ebert summed it up very succinctly: "Of all of the Star Trek movies, this is the worst." Subsequent films in the popular series have done nothing to disprove this opinion; we can be grateful that they've all been significantly better since this film was released in 1989. After Leonard Nimoy scored hits with Star Trek III and IV, William Shatner used his contractual clout (and bruised ego) to assume directorial duties on this mission, in which a rebellious Vulcan (Laurence Luckinbill) kidnaps Federation officials in his overzealous quest for the supreme source of creation. That's right, you heard it correctly: Star Trek V is about a crazy Vulcan's search for God. By the time Kirk, Spock, and their Federation cohorts are taken to the Great Barrier of the galaxy, this journey to "the final future" has gone from an embarrassing prologue to an absurd conclusion, with a lot of creaky plotting in between. Of course, die-hard Trekkies will still allow this movie into their video collections; but they'll only watch it when nobody else is looking. After this humbling experience, Shatner wisely relinquished the director's chair to Star Trek II's Nicholas Meyer. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! Aug. 12 2003
Format:DVD
First off, THE FINAL FRONTIER is by far the most underrated of the Star Trek films, as well as one of the most underrated films ever made. Sure, it's the most flawed of the Trek adventures (mainly in the field of special effects, which really[is bad], and the trashy, anticlimactic ending). But it also has a lot going for it: the best character interplay between Kirk/Spock/McCoy ever, more screen time for the other crew members than in the previous films, and the return of Jerry Goldsmith (without a doubt the greatest Star Trek composer ever).
But it is actually because of all of STAR TREK V's flaws that I have longed for this DVD above all the rest of Paramount's line of Special Collector's Edition Star Trek DVDs. I'm eagerly awaiting learning all about the film's troubled production and Paramount's butchering of the budget. It may help to improve my (as well as countless others') opinion on the film.
But I must admit that I am extremely disappointed in Paramount's decision not to grant William Shatner a Director's Edition. I mean, they gave one to THE WRATH OF KHAN, for God's sake! Though a DE is always welcome, the film was is no need of one! It was perfect as it was. Meanwhile, they deny a DE of THE FINAL FRONTIER, the most in need of new special effects, added scenes, digitally remastering, and all other aspects of a DE. Oh well . . . . . . I take what I can get.
Here's the run-down on the Special Features (not yet posted on Amazon.com), and judging from them, I'd say this looks to be the best Star Trek DVD yet:
Disc 1

2.0 out of 5 stars Thank God... for "Generations"! Jan. 3 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This Star Trek film is most definitely not THE worst ever...but only because "Generations" manages to fare even more dismally. At least Captain-Admiral-Captain J.T. Kirk was not "killed" twice in the same film. Too, this film, while relatively more episodic than "The Search for Spock" and "The Voyage Home," does not possess the ambience of a made-for-television movie the way "Generations" seems to, given its secondary storylines having to do with Picard's brother and nephew, the Duras sisters Lursa and Bator, and Enterprise-D's destruction. Better yet, while "Generations" may be set aside from the Trek chronology and lore, "The Final Frontier" may not - considering that this is the first mission for Enterprise-A and the last time that Commander (later Captain) Sulu would serve aboard the same vessel as Kirk, Spock, and company. Also, note that the main plotline for "Generations" - Soran the Madman and the Nexus Dimension - has already been trotted out in this very movie - in the form of Sybok the Madman and the Great Barrier Dimension.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give the man a break! July 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I take it not everyone is well versed in Star Trek history or Hollywoods knack for messing things up. The truth is this: The Budget was cut, so William Shatner couldn't even use the Special Effects he intended to! Also, Shatner didn't have his hands on the reigns completely througout filming. What really happened is a lot of people in charge pretty much told him to cut some of the movie out (atleast an hours worth!), forget about the Special effects and NO! Sean Connery will not play Sarek, and etc., etc. Instead of knowing the truth, too many people assume the movie stinks because of Shatner. Perhaps if Shatner had gotten the chance to make the film like he wanted, it could have been one of the best. Needless to say, of ALL the ST films, this one gave the characters actual personalities. It showed they had lives and loves outside of the Federation. And it was hilarious! Like I said, don't knock the man, it really WASN'T his fault, but then again, if anyone cared to find out the truth, they would know all this already!

2.0 out of 5 stars Uneven in the extreme. June 27 2004
Format:DVD
Any Star Trek fan is well aware of the place Star Trek 5 has occupied in the film series. Most people avoid it and try not to look directly at it, for fear of turning into a pillar of salt. But is it really that bad?
Yes and no. If you watch some of the special features and watch the film, you'll see some of the aims were noble and even achieved. Shatner and Bennett mention trying to stay true to the original series by exploring the emotional core of Spock, Kirk and McCoy. They also try the tried-and-true formula of commenting on the human condition by asking a deeper question about humanity within the framework of science fiction.
That, of course, what makes this film so uneven. The moments focusing on Spock, Kirk & McCoy are the film's strongest -- informed with an easy sentimentality and nostalgia but underscoring the long-standing friendship of the characters and chemistry of the actors. McCoy's wit is at its sharpest in this film. These moments are worth the time.
But the larger question about God is where the movie stumbles. For many, the memory of this movie and plot is summed up in the line, "What does God need with a starship?" It's one of those cringe-inducing lines that even Laurence Olivier would have trouble lending any measure of credibility to. Shatner does the best he can within the constraints of character, time, budget, etc. and the result, unfortunately, doesn't work.
According to the special features, this movie was plagued by budget and time shortfalls as well as an effects house that might not have been up to the task. Shatner's commentary repeatedly mentions time and money shortfalls. Is it possible that this hurt the quality of the film? Most likely.
