Not just the best of the Next Generation movies, but one of the best of the entire franchise.

If the film itself is a little bit generic, more of a popcorn sci-fi action film than a faithful adaptation of the characters from the series, that's probably all to the good.

In zooming out from Picard's glinty eyeball, this eighth feature film from the Trek factory displays a zippy new energy and a sleek, confident style fully independent of its predecessors.

The problem with most of the Next Generation Star Trek movies is that they feel like extended episodes of the television show. First Contact is the one time that it really feels like they made a Movie, with a capital M.

...a huge step beyond Generations.

May 15, 2009
It does a good job of serving up elements that will please the fans of the show, but it does not quite stand on its own as a memorable motion picture event.

First Contact is no grab bag of camp gewgaws; it stands proud and apart, accessible even to the Trek-deficient. This old Star, it seems, has a lot of life in it.
April 16, 2009
Star Trek finally gets imaginative, exciting and - dare I say it? - kinky.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 19, 2008
Action-packed yet intelligent, this takes the very best of the TV show and gives it epic grandeur.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 5, 2007
The elegance of the story is enhanced by the sure direction of Jonathan Frakes, who also plays Commander William Riker.
June 5, 2007
The historic first Trek movie entirely divorced from the original cast is no blot on the franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 5, 2007
A smashingly exciting sci-fi adventure that ranks among the very best in the long-running Paramount franchise.
June 24, 2006
This makes little concession to non-initiates.
May 26, 2006
Among the two or three best of the Star Trek films.

April 5, 2006
It robustly apes James Cameron's Aliens, even down to the head villain, played with kinky boo-hiss relish by Alice Krige, who appears to be channeling equal parts Cameron's Alien Queen and Marlene Dietrich.
April 9, 2005
This film is going to have lots of return viewers and will be one of the more successful of the franchise.

The best of the Next Generation entries.

March 5, 2005
Compared to episodes before and those that followed, this eighth installment of the unkillable series is surprisingly watchable.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
May 20, 2003
The series now lacks all of its original stars and much of its earlier determination. It has morphed into something less innocent and more derivative than it used to be, something the noncultist is ever less likely to enjoy.
