The Bonus Features disc is NOT a DVDBy John-James Worrall from Warrington , 11 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The disc is a 10 track audio cd of music from the Star Trek movies. There is no video at all on this disc. Avoid!

The worst of the Trek films, but still not that badBy TheWatchman (491 reviews) from Suburbia , 16 May 2013Most people who know about the Star Trek films feel that the fifth outing was the weakest of the series and theyre probably right. Nothing really fits for the big-screen. The villain isnt particularly villainous. The Klingon sub-plot is pretty lame. There isnt much action and theres never much of a feel of threat to the characters. However, despite all that, the film isnt too bad. I look at as more as an extended episode of the TV show. The Enterprise gets taken over (rather easily in my opinion it must have been the Security staffs lunch hour or something) by some blokes wearing rags, lead by Spocks half brother (who should have been played by Sean Connery, only he turned the part down). Then, the ship is taken to the centre of the universe (which is apparently only a few hours journey away) in an attempt to meet God. Since Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home had a lot of humour in it, it seems like theyve tried to recreate a humorous atmosphere in number 5, too. However, it doesnt really work and take away what little tension there is for the situation. The banter between the Kirk-Spock-McCoy triangle is nice, but, again, it only serves to make this a light-hearted film that deals with serious subject matter. William Shatner, aka Captain Kirk, also directs. And, to be fair, he doesnt do a bad job. Everything here is pretty standard stuff. It certainly wont win over many new fans to either the genre or the franchise. However, if youre a fan of the old crew and have an hour and a half to spare, there are worse sci-fi outings out there.

Even worse the the Motion PictureBy JedHawthorne (1 review) , 08 Apr 2013The simplest way to review this film is to give it a more accurate title - 'Star Trek V: Shatner Spits at God'
brilliant as alwaysBy cheesekake (1283 reviews) from uk , 26 Jun 2012as always with Star Trek its the sort of film that is timeless, i. e. you could watch over and over and still enjoy it.
the storyline is brilliant, the effects are second to none.
defo worth watching.
William Shatner Ego Hour!By Greggers (11 reviews) from Wickford , 21 Jan 2011I have been a startrek fan forever, I lost faith a little with startrek 4-5 but luckely number 6 got me back.
The Final Frontier is't the worst film I've ever seen and it makes a pretty blue ray. It has its moments both good and bad. definatly a trekkie only film.
Its an odd numbered Star trek filmBy ajmac (55 reviews) from Stockport , 08 Nov 2010For anyone who knows star trek then I think the title says it all. For some reason the odd numbered films have always been inferior to their even numbered compatriots, not sure why its just one of those unwritten laws like buttered toast always landing butter side down. Worth a watch just don't expect too much or asked too many questions.
