It has high adventure, nifty special effects and much good humor, but it also has a wonderful resonance to it.

The absolute nadir of the series, a movie so bad in so many ways that the second-worst has to squint and use binoculars to see that far down.

Worst in series; some tricky religious content.

Easily the weakest of the original cast Star Trek films.

Final Frontier is a warmly crafted picture only lacking a sophisticated technical and dramatic finesse the earlier features held in abundance. The film is never aggressively odious, just undernourished.

Did it really take William Shatner in the director's chair to finally give us a decent Star Trek movie?

William Shatner's inauspicious feature directing debut is a double letdown.

TV Guide

Although the film's ontological approach may be intriguing, this rather dull entry fails to generate the kind of thoughtful, exciting adventure that made the Gene Roddenberry TV series so compelling.

[The] special effects, despite the hefty budget, look strictly bargain basement.

...delivers all the pleasure of a plucked pubic hair.

The plot, about a quest for the Ultimate Answer, resembles something Douglas Adams would have thrown in the bin.

Shatner can be funny, but he stinks as a director.

Disappointing production, but always good to visit the old crew.

Isn't horrible, but I'd only recommend to a diehard.

The only thing worse than letting William Shatner act in a movie is letting William Shatner direct one.

It will likely maintain its long-cemented reputation as the worst film in the series.
