Star Trek V - The Final Frontier Reviews
Kirk: Yes, Spock?
Spock: Life is not a dream.
Kirk: Go to sleep, Spock.
Then there was Sybok. This is where Star Trek V kind of falls apart. Laurence Luckinbill plays him very mellow, which is strange for a zealot on a mission from God. His methods are frustrating, especially since we don?t see the actual brainwashing process until very late in the film. It?s like people just suddenly are on his side. When it?s revealed how he?s doing it, I could not comprehend why this would magically make people behave in ways that are counter to their personality. I admit his motive was acceptable, being driven by a vision of God makes sense. And it also seems logical that he would be the one to have these visions because the Vulcans have some psychic sensitivity.
So this begs the question, since the Federation seems to be an organization that is all about exploration, why did they never attempt to explore the center of the galaxy? Because it ends up being so simple to get in there, it feels like this would be something they would have tried in the past. Then when they get in there, Kirk is willing to go against everything he said before simply out of curiosity. There are several things like this that Kirk and Spock do which seem out of character and that bugged me a lot. The truth is that The Final Frontier is not one of the better Star Trek films, it has all these flaws I?ve listed, but it?s also not the worst Star Trek film. I?d be willing to watch it again for sure, which is much more than I expected going into my first viewing of the film.
but yes the story is a little bit poor and bad
but it is a movie whit beatiflu music and meaning
Cinematography - 30% - 9/30

Music - 7% - 6.5/7
Final - 40/100
Cheap production values abound and the less said about the story the better.
There are a few "silly" moments that edge towards parody including an hilarious moment when Spock uses his Vulcan death grip on a horse. If anything lets the movie down it's the special effects which are too often rather ropey. "The Final Frontier" is perhaps a grander sounding title than it deserves but it's nevertheless worth a watch.
