Not Classic... Classic Star Trek,
This review is from: Star Trek 5 - The Final Frontier [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Star Trek 5 lives up to the belief that the odd numbered films are not as good as the even numbered Trek films. It does however have some good moments within it, although the overall story is not so good. The moment when Captain Kirk is climbing the cliff edge at the beginning is great. Also it works really well to have Spock's emotional (but fully Vulcan) half brother as the bad guy. The interplay between Spock and Sybok is really great and reveals interesting things about the Vulcan character that we didn't know before.
All in all, if you are not a Star Trek fan then this film is probably not worth buying, but if you are a Star Trek fan then this film is definitly worth buying.
