Star Trek III - The Search for Spock Reviews

April 26, 2018
This "Star Trek," the liveliest and most likable of the three, will satisfy hard-core Trekkies and win more than a few new recruits to their ranks.

"Star Trek III" has a genuine spirituality, and, at its end, you may be surprised, especially if you're not really a Trekkie, to realize how moved you've been.

These are classic directorial occasions, and Nimoy rises to them with fervor, in effect beaming his film up onto a higher pictorial plane than either of its predecessors.

An emotionally satisfying science fiction adventure.

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.

May be the unappreciated middle child of the Trek franchise, but it's still one of better and more indispensable episodes.

Decent SFX, but a little more action wouldn't have gone amiss.

All the old Enterprise personnel carry the film, as it is more concerned with character re-animation than development.

'Star Trek III' takes nearly forty minutes, much of which is filled with silly, mystical exposition about the current state of Spock's soul, before things start moving. The last twenty minutes are equally slow, but the stuff in between is quite enjoyable.
