    Superb quality sequel full of heart. The film franchise's big budget equivalent to City On The Edge Of Forever.

    One of the my favorite Star Trek films. The chemistry of the cast is fantastic and the humor and light tone help to propel this movie past some of the more serious ones in this franchise.

    Its the lightest of the many Star Trek movies that involve the original crew and cast. Because it's set in the current day, there's not a lot of CGI needed unless its about the whales. The story is ok - its not good or bad, but it works to get the crew home after the last movie.

    Excellent 4th instalment of the series has wonderful humour, involving drama and is a really fun adventure. The original crew cast are on their very best form with some great material to work with.

    I was actually more engaged by this one, more than Search for Spock if I'm being honest.

    A more interesting and even humorous take on the Star Trek film series. Not quite as good as some of the previous films, but this alone is still an entertaining watch and a pretty unforgettable adventure for the classic crew.

    Pros: Spock is crazy, punk music, cold war humor, amazing predictions of the future. Cons: Set on earth in the 1980s, rehashed plot, overly political, low budget, Shatner's hair

    The Star Trek universe is unique in that it is clearly a fantasy, though somewhat of a reality we'd love to see come to fruition. Meshing our present world with a contrived future can be risky, especially when interlacing the story with clear political and social commentaries of the time. Star Trek IV accomplishes all of these things, while delivering a brilliantly self-deprecating performance from most parties involved, all the while presenting a story that is entirely believable, in great part thanks to strong acting, writing, and special effects.
