Better than you think......,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The Director's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
It's a hard movie to watch by any means but I do quite like it. I have the blu-ray collection but to date a director's cut of this movie has not been released onto the HD scene.
I bought this as a companion piece. It's tighter and the new effects improve the look without abusing the source material. Some prefer theatrical releases and refuse to budge on any other interpretation. I like to see alternate versions of a lot of films. I think it keeps them fresh especially if they don't detroy the essence of the movie itself)
Because it's off the radar as a successful "even" number Trek movie, I find a lot to love in this. McCoy is his most grouchy, Spock is his most alien, Kirk........ erm.....

Great review Paul, I was lucky to get the 20 extended edition dvd disc set that was released many years ago & glad I did as the later release standard movies.
This was a far better edit mixing standard & theatrical adding a exellent Directors edition.
