Product Description

Amazon.ca

Star Trek V left us nowhere to go but up, and with the return of Star Trek II director Nicholas Meyer, Star Trek VI restored the movie series to its classic blend of space opera, intelligent plotting, and engaging interaction of stalwart heroes and menacing villains. Borrowing its subtitle (and several lines of dialogue) from Shakespeare, the movie finds Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) and his fellow Enterprise crew members on a diplomatic mission to negotiate peace with the revered Klingon Chancellor Gorkon (David Warner). When the high-ranking Klingon and several officers are ruthlessly murdered, blame is placed on Kirk, whose subsequent investigation uncovers an assassination plot masterminded by the nefarious Klingon General Chang (Christopher Plummer) in an effort to disrupt a historic peace summit. As this political plot unfolds, Star Trek VI takes on a sharp-edged tone, with Kirk and Spock confronting their opposing views of diplomacy, and testing their bonds of loyalty when a Vulcan officer is revealed to be a traitor. With a dramatic depth befitting what was to be the final movie mission of the original Star Trek crew, this film took the veteran cast out in respectably high style. With the torch being passed to the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation, only Kirk, Scotty, and Chekov would return, however briefly, in Star Trek: Generations. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Following the disastrous critical and box office reception of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Paramount could have easily dropped the original cast in favor of The Next Generation. However, sentiment prevailed and Nicholas Meyer, who directed The Wrath of Khan (still the most popular film with most Trekkers) and who co-wrote The Voyage Home (still the highest grossing Trek film), was called in. He, along with Leonard Nimoy, fashioned a script which features most of what has made Trek endure through the years: a relevant story drawing on then current events (i.e., the lightning paced changes in the relationship between the United States and the then Soviet Union, which precipitated the end of the Cold War), with plenty of action, drama, humor (appropriate humor, not slapstick) and character development. Thus, the original cast would be able to exit the franchise with their heads held high.
The pacing of this film is much smoother than the earlier films (even Treks II & IV took too long to get moving) starting swiftly and accelerating to the pulse-pounding conclusion. The overall tone of the film is darker and edgier than any previous Trek (perhaps the filmmakers were taking a cue from 1989s Batman, which obliterated Star Trek V at the box office). The directing is fluid, with Meyer's camera swooping around the bridge (a notoriously difficult set to film in) and the other sets, and the editing is tight. Although the story primarily (and correctly) focuses the action on the triumvirate of Kirk, Spock & McCoy, the supporting cast is given plenty to do as well. Sulu, in particular--finally Captain of his own ship--has greater involvement.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country has probably the best plot of all the Star Trek films. It was criticized at the time for seeming to copy the real life fall of the Soviet Union. However, the intention was only to link events of the end of the original series to Star Trek: The Next Generation. The film is full of suspense and the cast at some of their best performances. I first watched this movie just out of boredom, but was pleasantly surprised. It made this former Star Trek hater into an instant fan.

Three cheers for Leonard Nimoy and Nicholas Meyer. After Star Trek was MUGged by the absurd ego of William Shatner with his disastrous Star Trek 5,Nimoy came up with the idea of Star Trek 6 with the fall of Communism in the Soviet Union and the Berlin wall coming down.
Nick Meyer chipped in with his ideas and brilliant direction to save Star Trek,as he did with his writing and direction in ST2 and his writing of the San Francisco scenes in ST4.
Nimoy,who had previously done so well with his directing in Star Trek 4,this time produced Star Trek 6:The Voyage Home.
Highlights of this film are - the explosion of the Klingon moon(based on Chernobyl),the assassination,the Klingon trial of Kirk and McCoy,the prison camp,the escape and the finale.
It is amazing what they did with a Star Trek 6 budget that was similar to the cheap looking Star Trek 5.
And they had the good sense to bring the brilliant ILM back to do the effects. ILM's brilliant effects make a huge difference.
Rick Berman followed Shatner's mistake of ditching ILM for the last two Trek films,will they ever learn?
ILM made a huge difference in six Star Trek films and the Peter Pan line at the end "second star to the right and on till morning" is a delight.

Nick Meyer's "Undiscovered Country" is a terrific movie which involves witty dialogue, a terrific plot, great special effects (for that day and age), a complimentary score by Cliff Eidelman, and surprisingly good acting. I was only eight when the film was released in '91, but when they special edition DVD's were released, I decided it would be best to buy just my favorites, and this one is on the list.
Why? Well, the script takes you for a good ride for close to two hours and never lets up - I mean never. There aren't many scripts that can do that. What impressed me the most is the acting. The actors aren't the same, campy, over-dramatic ones which they were claimed to be during the run of the television series. These are actors that pretty much know that this is the last movie in the franchise that made them stars, and they give down to earth and funny performances. It's almost like five grandparents and a grandma acting, with all that wisdom and wit. Shatner's performance was the greatest. This isn't the actor that released a horrible CD and is still impersonated - this is William Shatner at his best. Christopher Plummer is also incredible as the villain Chang. The trial scene is a great piece of acting for him.
True, the premise is based on the post-Cold War collapse of Russia, but isn't this how Trek was started after all? The Federation was NATO, the Klingons were Russians, and the Romulans Japanese? Roddenberry took our world, made races out of countries, and boom, we have "Star Trek." Many people who believe that "Trek" is unrealistic must do is look to our history to believe how wrong they are. Either way, this movie is a fitting sendoff that features the crew, and is what I believe right up there with the second movie as one of the best.
