Admiral Kirk's defeat of Khan and the creation of the Genesis planet are empty victories. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is dead and McCoy is inexplicably being driven insane. Then a surprise visit from Sarek, Spock's father, provides a startling revelation: McCoy is harbo ring Spock's living essence. With one friend alive and one not, but both in pain, Kirk (William Shatner) attempts to help his friend s by stealing the U.S.S. Enterprise and defying Starfleet's Genesis planet quarantine. But the Klingons have also learned of Genesis and race to meet Kirk in a deadly rendezvous.
The name says it all--Star Trek III: The Search for Spock--so you didn't think Mr. Spock was really dead, did you? When Spock's casket landed on the surface of the Genesis planet at the end of Star Trek II, we had already been told that Genesis had the power to bring "life from lifelessness". So it's no surprise that this energetic but somewhat hokey sequel gives Spock a new lease of life, beginning with his rebirth and rapid growth as the Genesis planet literally shakes itself apart in a series of tumultuous geological spasms. As Kirk is getting to know his estranged son (Merritt Butrick), he must also do battle with the fiendish Klingon Kruge (Christopher Lloyd), who is determined to seize the power of Genesis from the Federation. Meanwhile, the regenerated Spock returns to his home planet, and Star Trek III gains considerable interest by exploring the ceremonial (and, of course, highly logical) traditions of Vulcan society. The movie's a minor disappointment compared to Star Trek II, but it's a--well, logical--sequel that successfully restores Spock (and first-time film director Leonard Nimoy) to the phenomenal Trek franchise ... as if he were ever really gone. With Kirk's wilful destruction of the USS Enterprise and Robin Curtis replacing the departing Kirstie Alley as Vulcan Lt Saavik, this was clearly a transitional film in the series, clearing the way for the highly popular Star Trek IV. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

ADMIRAL KIRK and his bridge crew risk their careers stealing the decommissioned Enterprise to return to the restricted Genesis Planet to recover SPOCK's body.
Directed by LEONARD NIMOY, this is the one where WILLIAM SHATNER really acts. A beautiful, low-key performance (I am not joking), purposely reigned in by a colleague who knew exactly how to handle what is in effect a study about life, death and rebirth. It also has something insightful to say about friendship and sacrifice - huge continuing themes, all of significant importance here (and, if you're into that sort of thing, there are any number of Shakesperian references to be found throughout the television episodes and movies, just by scratching at the surface).
STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK was deeply satisfying to me, but not for most of the fans, it seems. Many thought it was too maudlin. But that's their loss, because if ever a STAR TREK film had something to say about the Triumph of the Human Spirit then this was it; Nimoy captured something no other director has managed before or since. And it's still got all the sci-fi trappings you could ever wish for, so what's not to like?
The Blu-Ray transfer is so detailed it actually emphasizes the 'garbage' mattes around the ENTERPRISE in the 'approach to Spacedock' sequence, a particularly harrowing example. Other than that, it's solid and consistent throughout. Colour is vivid, yet lifelike, and the sound is marginally better than the Special Edition DVD release, but dialogue still lacks high-end sharpness.
AND FINALLY...WILLIAM SHATNER
For once, the ham was placed to one side, no lines were carved up and no scenery chewed. The Transformed Man went for it and gave us something truly special.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
