William Shatner's inauspicious feature directing debut is a double letdown.
[The] special effects, despite the hefty budget, look strictly bargain basement.
The plot, about a quest for the Ultimate Answer, resembles something Douglas Adams would have thrown in the bin.
Captain Kirk and his crew go where too many film makers have too often gone before.
| Original Score: 2/5
Bloated, bombastic and maddeningly pretentious.
The whole point of the movie has something to do with the search for God and Eden, but the theme is presented in the most mundane fashion imaginable.
| Original Score: 2/4
A snoozola of astronomic proportions.
Of all of the Star Trek movies, this is the worst.
