Sometimes blamed for killing the movie franchise starring the original cast, V holds it's own as a decent trek film. At least, it's better than IV. If you're watching the series, don't stop at IV. If you're not a trek fan, skip it.

"Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" by Yojimbo

The crew of the Enterprise are sent to rescue three diplomats from the neutral zone, but their captor's true motive is to steal the ship to aid his quest to find God. The Final Frontier is widely regarded as the worst example, but Star Trek films are very much like the series; the ones you thought were brilliant at the time date really, REALLY quickly, yet the awful ones just seem to become more and more endearing! The laughable script, naive direction and iffy effects also echo the TV show, but somehow the likable cast, knockabout charm and sense of humour win through. William Shatner is clearly not an experienced director, but the pacing is fine and the enduring friendship between the central characters that forms the core of the film shines through. It does suffer for the fact that the...

The Very Worst Star Trek Movie

Yeah, it's a close one, but I'm going to have to say William Shanter's Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the very worst of the series. The story has something to do with Spock's brother Sybok, who ends up taking over the Enterprise and searches for God. I don't really know, I was way too baffled to try to conceptualize anything that was supposed to be going on in this movie...and if anyone tells you that 'film directing is easy and anybody could do it' you say "Bullshit. I've seen Star Trek V!" You can clearly see chaos through out the movie, because there is no director to be found.

Hmmmm....Where do I begin? Well first off, the dialogue and the delivery from every actor makes the writing from the rest of the Star Trek movies seem like they were written and directed by Tarantino... T...

Interesting concept, shoddy execution

After two successful sequels by Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner got a chance to direct his own STAR TREK movie. Unfortunately, the resulting film, STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER, turned out to be what is now infamously known as the worst of the STAR TREK films (I personally would argue that everything after the subsequent STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY save STAR TREK 2009 were even weaker). I don't know whether the blame lies on Shatner (who, in all fairness, tries, but never quite seems to get a good grasp on the atmosphere of STAR TREK in the same way Nimoy did) or on the poorer production values (the special effects are obviously cheap and shabby -- ILM was unavailable to produce them -- and the editing is unforgivably choppy), but either way, this is a major disappointment aft...
