Star Trek III - The Search for Spock Reviews
October 3, 2020
Despite the grim goings-on there is still a sense of humour and fun scattered thoughout.

The sci-fi themes are just as esoteric as before (and fitting for the universe), but the sense of adventure has vanished.

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is much better than its reputation would lead you to believe.

An uneven and at times quite ridiculous follow-up to The Wrath of Khan, but still worthwhile thanks to solid performances and great character work.

Almost certainly the best of the "bad" Star Trek films... and for the first 30 or 40 minutes, it's not really even bad, to speak of.

...a somber, mournful installment of the Star Trek franchise. And when the defining trait of your series is dullness, this isn't exactly the best strategy.

Not bad, but the series would boldly go to better places.

It's reasonably entertaining fare for non-fans.

This 1984 film's few and unimpressive special effects evidently qualify it as science fiction, but the genre it really belongs to is the male weepie: there hasn't been a gooier buddy romance on the screen since Joe Buck took Ratso Rizzo to Miami.
