Antagony & Ecstasy

Merely a weak, inapt Star Trek movie, not a completely awful one.

The Enterprise's first feature, with smarts outdoing guns.

Three Movie Buffs

Star Trek's freshman big screen effort was crippled by a plodding pace and a somber tone.

More of an event than a movie...more flash than content.

If the endless interstellar vistas of 2001: A Space Odyssey tested your patience, Star Trek: The Motion Picture will make you cry like a little star child.

a little too boring

As an exploration of the loneliness of a unique machine consciousness, great! As an exciting SF experience, maybe not.

The expensive effects (under supervision of Douglas Trumbull) are the secret of this film, and the amazing wizardry throughout would appear to justify the whopping budget.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Director Robert Wise has no feeling for Trek's pop insouciance, and the movie unfolds ponderously.

This 1979 movie adaptation of the cult TV series is blandness raised to an epic scale.

For non-addicts, the smart plot and effects go some way towards compensating for the plastic characters and costumes.

The long, majestic scene in which Scotty (James Doohan) takes Kirk in a shuttle toward the refurbished Enterprise is still breathtaking.

[It's] like attending your high-school class's 10th reunion at Caesar's Palace. Most of the faces are familiar, but the décor has little relationship to anything you've ever seen before.

Often unfairly maligned because it's slow and contemplative, but has some real ideas behind it.

Ponderously long, yes; but it was and still is a true movie event.

| Original Score: 4/5

Star Trek-The Motion Picture is a smart sc-fi thriller whose fascinating characters and thought-provoking plot are emphasized more than special effects.

You've heard the about the curse of the odd-numbered Star Trek films. It REALLY applies to this one.

The result is intriguing as far as the sci-fi genre goes, but not exactly something I'd consider to be Star Trek.
