Star Trek's freshman big screen effort was crippled by a plodding pace and a somber tone.

Merely a weak, inapt Star Trek movie, not a completely awful one.

As an exploration of the loneliness of a unique machine consciousness, great! As an exciting SF experience, maybe not.

You've heard the about the curse of the odd-numbered Star Trek films. It REALLY applies to this one.

What you see is what you respond to, and what you see is a unique cultural phenomenon, and a film that for all its visual splendors falls well short of its aspirations.

The rule with Star Trek films is even-numbered films are good, odd-numbered are bad -- and the first film in the series is no exception.

If the endless interstellar vistas of 2001: A Space Odyssey tested your patience, Star Trek: The Motion Picture will make you cry like a little star child.

There are only so many ways to photograph black starry space and the under-bellies of spaceships, and the films that got there first used them all up.

[It's] like attending your high-school class's 10th reunion at Caesar's Palace. Most of the faces are familiar, but the décor has little relationship to anything you've ever seen before.

This 1979 movie adaptation of the cult TV series is blandness raised to an epic scale.

Director Robert Wise has no feeling for Trek's pop insouciance, and the movie unfolds ponderously.
