Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home Reviews

If most movies today are doomed to be sure-fire, presold properties--with ideas leached from our recent TV or cinematic past--let's hope they're all as good at the game as "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home."
May 23, 2013
A bit flimsy to be legitimately counted as "great" Star Trek, but aware enough of its characters and their attachments to each other and the audience that it's "fun" Star Trek.

Buoyant, farcical time-travel Enterprise escapade.

...Kirk has finally reached his full lounge lizard potential (it's as if the comedy has freed him from his remaining inhibitions).

the bad guys... are really my countrymen so... still great though
| Original Score: 4/5

The eco-themes are writ large, but are saved from smacking of cringe-worthy earnestness by the good humour of the whole endeavour.

Latest excursion is warmer, wittier, more socially relevant and truer to its TV origins than prior odysseys.
June 6, 2007
By far the silliest and most self-mocking of the series.

I suspect the unconverted will want to be beamed up pronto.
April 8, 2006
It's a lightweight, entertaining, relentlessly mainstream action-farce. A high old time, no question. Too bad it's such lousy Star Trek. Here's where the series 'jumped the shark' -- and found that it was a whale.
January 26, 2006
Kirk & Co return to present-day San Francisco to save the whales in the most enjoyable film of the series so far, also returning to the simplistic morality-play format that gave the original TV series its strength.
November 8, 2004
one of the more entertaining Trek outings
| Original Score: 3/5

Allows the characters and relationships shine, but whales?
| Original Score: 4/5

The best until First Contact...
| Original Score: 4/5
June 24, 2003
The most successful and widely appealing of the Star Trek films, The Voyage Home is also the most idiosyncratic… some of the most humorous and humane moments in the Trek canon.
Full Review | Original Score: A
May 20, 2003
Mr. Nimoy directed this Star Trek installment, and indeed he should probably direct all of them. His technical expertise leaves much to be desired. But his sincerity is unmistakable, and it counts for a lot.

The Voyage Home isn't as dramatically powerful as the two previous Trek films, but it gives the characters plenty of time to show off their lighter sides.
| Original Score: B
March 19, 2003
One of the most purely enjoyable of the Star Trek films.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 24, 2003
The plot is totally cornball but amazingly it works extremely well
| Original Score: 4/5
November 7, 2002
Star Trek IV has all the elements people love about this series, and it earns its reputation as one of the long-running franchise's standout entries.
