3.0 out of 5 stars An uninspiring film, 29 May 2008
This review is from: Star Trek: Insurrection (Special Edition) [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
This is the third film made by the Next Generation Enterprise crew and unfortunately, in my view, it is the worst of all of their films. Insurrection begins with Data going haywire while serving with a federation team observing a primitive culture on an isolated planet and when the crew of the Enterprise investigate they uncover secrets that make them question the actions of the Federation.

There is nothing essentially wrong with this film, it is well made and acted with some good CGI and an interesting, if somewhat dull, script with some good twists. The problem is that it just doesn't excite as much as some of the other films and coming after the truly great film First Contact only exasperates the problem. There are some attempts to inject some excitement into the proceedings and some of the ship-to-ship combat in the film is good but this is unfortunately few and far between. In the end everything conspires to make Insurrection feel like an extended but average episode of The Next Generation series and lacks the cinematic feel of the many of the other Trek films.
