Star Trek: First Contact Reviews
Not only is this the best film starring the next generations cast, it's arguably the second best star trek movie period, behind only of course The Wrath of Khan. Personally, my favorite character has always been Riker, but Picard, Worf, and Data all get a real chance to shine here in a way they just couldn't on the TV show, and the actors nail it.
I must also complement Jonathan Frakes for his unbelievable directing job behind the camera as this movie was wonderfully directed, particularly the opening scene, which, in my opinion, is one of the most memorable moments from any Star Trek movie, and it immediately draws you in and engrosses you into the movie.
If you are a fan of, not just Star Trek, but the sci-fi genre in general, this is a must see as it is an absolute classic!
Very good music,
The camera movements are convenient,
The pace and timing was developing in a very appropriate manner not too fast, not too slow,
You pass through a happy and worry feelings and some thrilling while watching the movie,
I liked the idea of free will, also the idea of Appreciating the iconic characters and events of the past,
The characters was well convincing,
Final rating 9/10
In First Contact, Captain Jean-Luc Picard must face off once again with the Borg, arguably the most tenacious and threatening villains ever concocted on Star Trek. The Borg have gone back in time to the dawn of Earth's interstellar space age. They plan to annihilate the inventor of the warp drive and assimilate Earth. Naturally, Picard and crew are at the right place and in the right time to confront the cybernetic Borg. I found this version of the Enterprise (a brand new Enterprise, the TV version having been destroyed in Star Trek: Generations) much darker than the Enterprise-D. Who would want to work in such a dismal setting? But the cast was as good as ever. Data has an emotion chip. Worf joins in from his assignment on Deep Space Nine. Deanna gets drunk. The Borg infiltrate the Enterprise itself. Lots of action, lots of clever solutions to impossible problems, some violations of the Prime Directive, and a reference to Moby-Dick (which also featured in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan). What more could you ask for?
