Star Trek Generations Reviews

    (71/100) Star Trek: Generations is a bit of a let down, it basically reaches the same level of mediocre as Star Trek V: The Final Frontier did. The passing of the torch is pretty nice, but it felt like William Shatner was only in this movie for the paycheck, and not for the fun of it. The set design is amazing and the special effects are getting better with every movie. But the script is just not really up to par with the really great Star Trek movies. Overall, Star Trek: Generations is one of the weaker movies in the franchise, but still very enjoyable.

    Why did William Shatner appear in a film where Captain Kirk gets killed off? Terrible decision from Shatner to allow that to happen. Malcom McDowell and Alan Ruck are notable bad performances.

    Its an ok hand over movie from the original crew to the TNG crew. Wish it had a better story, as the it feels like an extended tv plot. Could be better.

    Overall, this was and still is, one of my favorite Star Trek Films, is it the best one, not by a longshot, but it is still a fun film and worthy of the name Star Trek. https://latetothegame.blog/2019/02/15/retro-tv-review-movie-edition-star-trek-generations-1994/

    It's nice to see the two most iconic captains of the franchise on the same screen, but little is done to take advantage of the situation. It does enough to entertain, getting dull at the end. Data struggling with his emotions chip is a fun subplot that adds a little brevity to the movie and does a lot. This is easily the highlight of the film and unfortunately the movie feels like a let down by the end. Enjoyable, but should be so much more.

    The first Star Trek film to feature the cast of Next Generation, and I was pretty pleased with this installment. Maybe not as impacting as the the film before this one, but I thought this was a good tie-in for the next set of films. I might also comment that the effects were quite good in this one compared to some others.

    Bizarre space phenomena and an obsessed antagonist boldly expands the Star Trek universe.

    A creditable attempt to resurrect the moribund Star Trek film franchise

    A great job by the cast an visually stunning effects makes up for this story that runs with two left feet. Trying to bridge the gap between these different ascetics of TOS and TNG leave the film feeling like it hasn't captured the spirit of either generation.
