Product Description

Starship Enterprise crew takes the ultimate voyage as they search for God and the mysteries of cosmos, both believed to be found on the legendary planet Shakaree.

From Amazon.co.uk

Almost universally derided on its first release as the worst of the Star Trek movies to date, The Final Frontier might just have been the victim of bad press. Following in the wake of the massively successful fourth instalment The Voyage Home didn't help matters (notoriously, even-numbered entries are better), nor did having novice director and shameless egomaniac William Shatner at the helm. But if the story, conceived and cowritten by Shatner, teeters dangerously on the verge of being corny, it redeems itself with enough thought-provoking scenes in the best tradition of the series, and a surprisingly original finale. Granted there are a few too many yawning plot holes along the way, and the general tone is over-earnest (despite some painfully slapstick comedy moments), but the interaction of the central trio (Kirk, Spock and McCoy) is often funny and genuinely insightful; while Laurence Luckinbill is a charismatic adversary as the renegade Vulcan Sybok. The rest of the cast scarcely get a look in, and the special effects betray serious budgetary restrictions, but with a standout score from Jerry Goldsmith and a meaty philosophical premise to play around with, Star Trek V looks a lot more substantial in retrospect. Certainly it's no worse than either Generations or Insurrection, the next "odd-numbered" entries in the series. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Definitely the most underrated of all the films in the series, Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier is a success on many levels. Of course, living up to the hopes of the previous trilogy (meaning Star Trek's 2, 3 and 4), would be hard to ask, but it felt different in a good and refreshing way.

One of the best things about Star Trek 5 is the interaction between the main characters. The film really shows how close Kirk, Spock and McCoy are and how their strong friendship has kept them going. There are many memorable scenes revolving around the three, most notably the campfire scene - brilliantly written. The film is also very humorous, and I believe the humour to be the most successfully executed in this one out of all the Star Trek films. Like Star Trek 3, The Final Frontier captures the feel of the original show which gives a sense of warmth to what you are viewing. Another major plus side of the movie is it's score, yeah they might have nicked it from TNG, and the Motion Picture, but who cares. (It shows the Star Trek spirit.)

Sometimes in Star Trek 5 though, the special-effects don't work quite as well, they are done more cheaply. Compared to Star Trek 3 for example, the visual effect of the Enterprise is obviously lower budget, and some shots don't look very good. However, many visual images do work well. William Shatner, who directed had so much grief about this film as the critics slated it - an unfair slating at that. The only reason I can see for them axing it, is that the plot was a bit too far-fetched; otherwise I can't see the problem. Yes, Cybok's mob might have been able to take over the Enterprise a little too easily as they maybe had gotten through the great barrier a little too "easily", but get over it.

Format: DVD
So Spock has a half-brother who looks like a pointy-eared Saddam Hussein, who manages to attract and then hijack a sad excuse for the Enterprise, all in an attempt to penetrate the Great Barrier (which has apparently moved from the edge of the galaxy to the exact center) and find the universal God. That's pretty much the plot of this movie in a nutshell. While Star Trek V: The Final Frontier does have its good moments, particularly in terms of the interplay between Kirk, Spock, and Bones, most Trekkies and movie-goers in general agree that this is without a doubt the worst of the six films featuring the original crew. Even Gene Roddenberry was critical of various parts of this film.

You could hardly ask for a more disappointing opening for a Star Trek film, as we watch a mysterious rider come upon a desert hole farmer (yeah, I said hole farmer) and release the man's pain. That pointy-eared stranger is Sybok, the half-brother Spock has never bothered to mention. One can only imagine the shame Sarek would feel (if Vulcans didn't bury their emotions) over this son, a renegade whose rejection of logic and embrace of emotions led to his expulsion from Vulcan. If nothing else, we now know that Spock was by no means the black sheep of his family. Following a vision of Shakaree, the legendary Vulcan "heaven," Sybok puts together a small army on the Neutral Zone planet of Nimbus III and takes the tri-partite council of Klingon, Romulan, and Terran ambassadors hostage, all in an effort to bring a starship into orbit. That starship is, of course, the new Enterprise, which has been dispatched by Starfleet despite the fact it has less than a skeleton crew - and almost nothing on the ship is actually working (despite Scotty's best efforts).
