Product Details

Product Description


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

3.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with problems but still worth watching May 31 2013
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
So Spock has a half-brother who looks like a pointy-eared Saddam Hussein, who manages to attract and then hijack a sad excuse for the Enterprise, all in an attempt to penetrate the Great Barrier (which has apparently moved from the edge of the galaxy to the exact center) and find the universal God. That's pretty much the plot of this movie in a nutshell. While Star Trek V: The Final Frontier does have its good moments, particularly in terms of the interplay between Kirk, Spock, and Bones, most Trekkies and movie-goers in general agree that this is without a doubt the worst of the six films featuring the original crew. Even Gene Roddenberry was critical of various parts of this film.

You could hardly ask for a more disappointing opening for a Star Trek film, as we watch a mysterious rider come upon a desert hole farmer (yeah, I said hole farmer) and release the man's pain. That pointy-eared stranger is Sybok, the half-brother Spock has never bothered to mention. One can only imagine the shame Sarek would feel (if Vulcans didn't bury their emotions) over this son, a renegade whose rejection of logic and embrace of emotions led to his expulsion from Vulcan. If nothing else, we now know that Spock was by no means the black sheep of his family. Following a vision of Shakaree, the legendary Vulcan "heaven," Sybok puts together a small army on the Neutral Zone planet of Nimbus III and takes the tri-partite council of Klingon, Romulan, and Terran ambassadors hostage, all in an effort to bring a starship into orbit. That starship is, of course, the new Enterprise, which has been dispatched by Starfleet despite the fact it has less than a skeleton crew - and almost nothing on the ship is actually working (despite Scotty's best efforts).

Star Trek V has always been noted as the worst of the entire Star Trek franchise, and yes, I too, once considered it an awful film, but after having seen it again, I can't help but feel it's not nearly the worst (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock), though certainly far, far from the best (Star Trek: First Contact). If there's one thing I'll give this entry credit for, it's that it has the most absurdly fascinating premise of the whole series.
Ok, I realize summing the film up by stating it's about an eccentric Vulcan searching for God might sound kind of silly, and it certainly is, but for me, just hearing the premise fuels all sorts of ideas in my head, sparks thoughts of the limitless posibilities of the universe and the imagination, and really, isn't that what Star Trek is all about? In The Final Frontier's case, the concept alone is enough to attain my interest.
Delivery is a completely different story. This is where the movie stumbles, and often quite badly. As all Trek fans know, this is the one movie in the series directed by William Shatner himself. What he obviously aspired to do was not only to create a popcorn adventure filled with action and humor, but also to infuse themes of spirituality and the wondrous possibilities of the unknown. Sounds like a great odyssey, I know, and while I'm sure some Trek fans will be fully satisfied with the film, I can't help but feel a little frustrated.
For starters, the opening segment set on Yosemite while the crew is on shore leave is one of the weakest extended scenes of the series. We get lame attempts at humor, totally unconvcing special effects (Spock's Superman-ish rescue of Kirk), and some rather pathetic bits of dialogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars I hate to tell you, but your not trekies at all! Jan. 11 2003
By E -Man
Like I said I hate to tell you but I happen to like Star Trek alot, I've been a long time trekie, I LOVE ALL THE TREK MOVIES, and really love this one. Yes I think the effects could be better, but Star Trek is more then effects,its the friendship between Kirk, McCoy and Spock that makes this one great. Over all its not as good as ST6 but still one of the best(just think of ST:TMP!)The thing I like about this one is you get to see Spock as he was in ST1 and ST2, not the "teen" in ST3 or the stick in the mud Spock in ST4(had no life at all!). And I like the klingons, I like there culture, there always good(unlike some enemies like the Sona). If you read reveiws you can tell these people aren't trek Fans, there complete fools and don't know what there missing out on. Trust me, if your a trekie you will like it.
PS can't wait for the directers cut! if it comes out!

For me, I personally loved this entry in the series because it goes back to the magic of the original show in a way. Finally, you have Kirk demoted from Admiral ("The Voyage Home") to Captain, and he gets to live out another adventure with his crew as captain of the Enterprise. You bring back Jerry Goldsmith ("The Motion Picture") to compose a masterpiece of all Trek musicals. And you give the characters more roles than they did in the last films. It truly goes back to the spirit of the show. After all, one of the dillemas with movie adaptions is that they tend to take away that magic. William Shatner does recapture that magic with this film which was his directorial debut. He brings in an interesting story in terms making you wonder if God could really exist out there in space. In a way the whole movie is about understanding each other, and our place in the universe. Although it does mimic the first movie, it does have a fast-paced feel, and it makes up for the first film in more special ways than one. Fun and enjoyable no matter what.
