Product Description

In this most colorful and relaxed installment of Paramount's longest running series, Captain Picard leads his multicultural starship crew in a rebellion to save a planet from the very Federation they serve so proudly.

From Amazon.co.uk

Star Trek fans were decidedly mixed in their reactions to this, the ninth big-screen feature in Paramount's lucrative Trek franchise. Die-hard loyalists will appreciate the way this Next Generation adventure rekindles the spirit of the original Trek TV series while combining a tolerable dose of New-Age philosophy with a light-hearted plot for the Next Gen cast. This time out, Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his executive crew must transport to a Shangri-la-like planet to see why their android crewmate Data (Brent Spiner) has run amok in a village full of peaceful Ba'ku artisans who--thanks to their planet's "metaphasic radiation"--haven't aged in 309 years.

It turns out there's a conspiracy afoot, masterminded by the devious, gruesomely aged Ru'afo (F. Murray Abraham, hamming it up under makeup resembling a cosmetic surgeon's worst nightmare), who's in cahoots with a renegade Starfleet admiral (Anthony Zerbe, in one of his final screen roles). They covet the fountain-of-youth power of the Ba'ku planet, but because their takeover plan violates Starfleet's Prime Directive of non-interference, it's up to Picard and crew to stop the scheme. Along the way, they all benefit from the metaphasic effect, which manifests itself as Worf's puberty (visible as a conspicuous case of Klingon acne), Picard's youthful romance with a Ba'ku woman (the lovely Donna Murphy), the touching though temporary return of Geordi's natural eyesight, and a moment when Troi asks Dr. Crusher if she's noticed that her "boobs are firming up".

Some fans scoffed at these humorous asides, but they're what make this Trek film as entertaining as it is slightly disappointing. Without the laughs (including Data's rousing excerpt from Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore), this is a pretty routine entry in the franchise, with no real surprises, a number of plot holes, and the overall appearance of a big-budget TV episode. As costar and director, Jonathan Frakes proves a capable carrier of the Star Trekflame--and it's nice to see women in their 40s portrayed as smart and sexy--but while this is surely an adequate Trek adventure, it doesn't quite rank with the best in the series. --Jeff Shannon

I've always found that the general public in general are too demanding and don't really appreciate what goes into a good film, or what appeals to people. For one you cannot please all the people all the time and therefore you are always going to upset somebody. ST Insurrection is such a film and although it is not the best film in the series there is enough in it to keep you entertained and there are also some wonderful moments which I will not forget. Like for example Bev and Deana discussing about the firmness of their boobs, Rikers claim that his clean shaven face is as smooth as an andriod's bottom, Data and Picard singing Gilbert and Sullivan, and the moment Geordi finally is able to see with his own eyes for the first time.
Some people have said this is the worst film of the series bar The Final Frontier ( a film some people have called one of the worst films ever... clearly a ridiculus statement to make considering there are hundreds of worse films than that and the person saying this couldn't possibley have seen every film to make this judgement).
For some people something is either great, or rubbish. A trait which comes from reading too many tabloid newspapers who couldn't give a balanced view of things if their life depended on it.
It's no First Contact, but then only The Wrath of Khan betters that and being a fan of all the series of Star Trek I feel this makes a worthy edition to the franchise.
Star Trek isn't all about blowing Borg/Romulans/Klingons to kingdom come, there is another side to it and this film is that side.

Format: DVD
Star Trek Insurrection the 9th film in the long running series is quite a disappointment following on from the much better First Contact. Again it seems the curse of the odd numbered Trek films, being weak, is here to stay.

This film strays from the well established and successful niche that Star Trek has made for itself. Rather than have a baddy to confront and defeat we have a baddy that's not really a baddy and a goody that's not really a goody. As a result I was not sure who the real bad guy was, even if there was one. The Prime Directive (do not interfere in other civilizations) is being flouted and Captain Picard is being ordered to go along with it. He's not happy and disobeys orders to stop it happening, if he can.

The Baku live peacefully and without technology (their free choice) but has stumbled on a kind of Fountain of Youth, and as you can expect everyone wants a piece of it. However this means the forced repatriation of the Baku people in direct opposition to The Prime Directive. So far so so, but it gets a lot worse. The rest of the film seems to be nothing but endless shots of people walking up a mountain.

A wordy and frankly dull script is served up to use with little enthusiasm and the director's apparent flair in First Contact has abandoned him. The actors appear on autopilot, except in the case of the ever wonderful F Murray Abraham as the main baddy. He does at least try to put some chutzpah into his performance, even if you can hardly see him. The bad guys in this film are quite ridiculous and not in the least intimidating or scary. Captain Picards "romantic interest" only slows the pace even further with sleep inducing dialogue and constant doe eyed looks at Picard.

Okay, first, I love Star Trek (assume from that what you will), however, I have found that (apart from First Contact) the films that involve Picard and his crew are really average verging on bland. They're not particularly appalling, but they're certainly not brilliant. This plot, I think, is trying to make a point about forced relocation, but just ends up coming off as preachy (as do many of the characters). The basic premise of Captain Picard turning on Star Fleet has promise, but it's executed fairly poorly. If you're buying it to complete your Star Trek collection, then please don't let me stop you, but I don't think I would want to see it again.

After the excitement and action of First Contact, things slowed down a bit for this next film in the star trek series, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. there's a little more time for some charachter development,humor and some wonderful plot developments (Riker and troi rekindelling their romance for instance). it does drag a bit at times, but the pace picks up nicely in the second half to an exciting climax.
the film centers aroung picard defying starfleet orders to prevent 600 people from being uprooted from their planet. i do feel more could have been made of this. Kirk did a similar thing in Star Trek III and ended up stealing the enterprise, going to a forbidden planet and ultimately blowing the ship up. THAT'S how you disobey orders. picard on the other hand, merely hangs around when told to return to earth,makes a nuisance of himself and ends up arguing with an admiral - not quite in the same league.
Despite this there is still plenty to keep audiances entertained.
i was disappointed that there was no director's commentry. Jonathan Frakes came across really well on the commentery to First Contact, as genuinely nice guy who enjoys his flimaking, so i felt a little let down by the absence of any commentry here. he does make up for it in the movie, however, by showing us the best way to have a shave (the lucky git!!!).
All in all, a solid addition to the series and well worth adding to your collection.
