There are weaknesses here--especially when the climax becomes too packed and chaotic, and the goodby over-hasty. But Meyer and Flynn get a fullness back into the characters.

Not very great Star Trek, but it's such an impeccably made popcorn movie that it's just not worth it to pretend that it matters.

...mostly combines the interminable interstellar politics of the later Star Wars films with the slowest game of Clue you've ever played.

Why is this such a good Star Trek movie? Well, Spock makes a mean captain, standing in for the imprisoned Kirk.

Weighed down by a midsection even flabbier than the long-in-the-tooth cast, director Nicholas Meyer still delivers enough of what Trek auds hunger for to justify the trek to the local multiplex.

SPOCK: 'Logic dictates we include all the ingredients which have proved popular in our earlier films. Data indicates that one crucial element is what humans call 'tongue-in-cheek' humor; in-jokes about previous episodes, self-mocking references, etc.'

Meyer's direction and dialogue are among the most fluid and exciting of the whole series, and he manages a lovely 'final' feel, saying goodbye to the old crew and embracing the future at the same time.

The bang/buck ratio is high and it's packed with pithy dialogue and little emotional kicks that make it a worthy, dignified sendoff for the crew we've followed for so many (dear God, so many) years.

Though patchy, this is a lot more fun than the disastrous Star Trek V.

The original crew at its finest, and the Trek lore at its most thrilling.

As with many of the Trek movies, the acting is exaggerated and the plot has holes. But flaws and all, it's fun to watch this crew complete its final big-screen mission.

A rousing sendoff for Kirk, Spock, and Bones, and a fitting transition from the original series' Cold-War milieu to the Next-Generation age of engagement.

The principals' enthusiasm for their material has never seemed to fade. If anything, that enthusiasm grows more appealingly nutty with time.

There is some blood and violence in the film, but it is generally a lot of fun, a fine holiday movie.
