Here is a movie so concerned with in-jokes and updates for Trekkers that it can barely tear itself away long enough to tell a story.

Mostly, Generations spends its running length searching for, and never completely finding, its niche.

Doesn't work as a goodbye to Kirk or as a hello to Picard.

Star Trek at its geekiest, and cursory filmmaking at its blandest.

At least the special effects and outer space vistas are more handsome than usual.

This entry isn't particularly strong, but it isn't terribly weak, either -- it's probably the best of the "odd number" Trek movies ever made
| Original Score: 3/5

Everything this picture does differently is a piece of a potentially exciting story, but there just isn't any glue to hold this model Enterprise together.

...tries too self consciously to connect the old crew to the newer one and never quite makes a smooth transition.

So so attempt to combine two generations of Star Trek crews.

Even so-called trekkies had several bones to pick with the plot and characterisation of this movie.

It would have, however, been nice if Generations would have gone beyond the scope of the television series to deliver something a bit more substantial.
| Original Score: 2/4

Both a dismal farewell to the old crew and a dull introduction to the new.
| Original Score: 1/5

Disappointing big-screen debut for Picard's gang
| Original Score: 2/5

Rewards long-time fans but contains basic flaws likely to trouble general audiences.
| Original Score: B-

I had hoped Generations would rescue Star Trek from its pervasive dullness, but somehow things have gotten even more boring

The plot holes are obvious and disconcerting, the sub-plots feel tacked-on, and the characters are both thinly-drawn and badly-played.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's so messed up, confused, and cheap that even the sight of Picard and Kirk fighting together can't save it.
