Star Trek - The Motion Picture: Director's Edition is no 2001 (its obvious inspiration -- a fact that is more evident here than ever before), but it represents thought-provoking, well constructed science fiction.
So okay, perhaps the plot is somewhat substandard but the glorious special effects thrown up by director Robert Wise ... and a no doubt expert team of special effects craftsmen actually makes this one well worth seeing.
