I have read William Shatners book and if they had given him the financial backing this film deserved it would have been up there with the likes of "Wrath of Khan" sadly they did'nt and what we have is a good trek yarn but let down by the special effects.The shots of the Enterprise clearly look cheaper and the whole production does have a strange feel to it. That said Shatner does have a really excellent attempt at directing his first film, the comic touches are clearly the best in the series,Overall for fans this is excellent entertainment and was intended to wrap the series up. But just like trek fans,we WONT let it die for long.

This film is highly understated and often dismissed but the more time passes the more I appreciate this film, the ultimate quest the search for God is the main theme add the original cast, action, well crafted humour and heart felt scenes star trek V is still a gem if unpolished.
This film was plagued by budget constraints and poor marketing leading to poor box office through it did well enough on DVD to get star trek 6 made which is very good. Shatner himself criticized paramount on the way special effects and budget for as handled leading to a curtailed ending. The acting and story still manages to shine through. The reason I give it a 5 star is for effort the matter of the story is unique, humour, acting quality all make this still heads above most sci films if not the best in the series it still deserves to be among them.

Definitely the most underrated of all the films in the series, Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier is a success on many levels. Of course, living up to the hopes of the previous trilogy (meaning Star Trek's 2, 3 and 4), would be hard to ask, but it felt different in a good and refreshing way.

One of the best things about Star Trek 5 is the interaction between the main characters. The film really shows how close Kirk, Spock and McCoy are and how their strong friendship has kept them going. There are many memorable scenes revolving around the three, most notably the campfire scene - brilliantly written. The film is also very humorous, and I believe the humour to be the most successfully executed in this one out of all the Star Trek films. Like Star Trek 3, The Final Frontier captures the feel of the original show which gives a sense of warmth to what you are viewing. Another major plus side of the movie is it's score, yeah they might have nicked it from TNG, and the Motion Picture, but who cares. (It shows the Star Trek spirit.)

Sometimes in Star Trek 5 though, the special-effects don't work quite as well, they are done more cheaply. Compared to Star Trek 3 for example, the visual effect of the Enterprise is obviously lower budget, and some shots don't look very good. However, many visual images do work well. William Shatner, who directed had so much grief about this film as the critics slated it - an unfair slating at that. The only reason I can see for them axing it, is that the plot was a bit too far-fetched; otherwise I can't see the problem. Yes, Cybok's mob might have been able to take over the Enterprise a little too easily as they maybe had gotten through the great barrier a little too "easily", but get over it.

Of all the Star Treks,film,TV, cartoon and internet from 1966 to date this must be the worst, give or take Spocks Brain

Thin plot,childish dialogue,daft effects and a cast looking way over-age are not helped by Shatner's poor direction

The cheaply made modern internet fan episodes show how poor this really is

No redeeming features

A surprising mess bearing in mind the 4th film's class and the 6th film;s high production values - didn't Paramount watch this before distributing it ?

The fifth Star-Trek movie kicks off with a truly unusual phenomenon a 'Vulcan'
laughing.
Back on earth many of the 'Enterprise' crew are on shore-leave in 'Yosemite -
Park.
Meanwhile on-board a red alert is sounded with a directive from 'Star-Fleet'
Command to respond to a crisis in the safe-zone on 'Nimbus III'
The crew of the Enterprise have to be gathered up to proceed on the mission
to free the hostages taken by the eccentric 'Vulcan' 'Sybok'
Upon arrival 'Sybok' hijacks the 'Star-Ship' his intention is to find the mythical
planet believed to be situated at the centre of the universe, 'Sybok' believes
he will find the creator.
Will the finding of the planet bring them face to face with God himself....does
the planet exist, if so, what will they find ?
The Captain has to strike up an unlikely alliance to resolve the issues involved.
There is plenty of humour harboured within the Space-Age adventure.
This is a pretty good HD update of this 1989 'Star-Trek' movie.
