When I first heard Star Trek: The Motion Picture was two hours long, I was elated. Then I sat down and watched it. The truth is that you could probably cut out at least 45 minutes of the film and keep the same exact story without a single problem. Many of the sequences that could be cut are the equivalent of space porn with dramatic music. At least the music was good. It was nice to see The Original Series characters again, plus a few more that I liked, but some relationships and moments between characters were infuriating to say the least. I only liked the film as much as I did because of the relationships between Spock, Kirk, and McCoy, even though their interactions weren't the best. This picture could be skipped by Trek or sci-fi fans.

An okay Sci-fi film. The performances and script were pretty solid, but the film is 30 minutes too long and moves at a glacial pace at times. I thought the final bits were really good and I enjoyed the NASA connection at the end, but with a slow-moving middle and the showcasing of some horrendous visual effects, Star Trek 1 is a mediocre entry in the genre.

A weak start to the franchise - luckily they get better. I would actually recommend watching Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock before this one, then going back or you may be turned off by the entire series.

This movie just is too slowly paced to keep anyone's interest. It just has so many sequences of the space screen. These scenes just go on and on without stop, there is nothing interesting about them, I do not know what Robert Wise was thinking. The other problem is the film has so little focus on the characters from the actual series.
