Mine: Downright embarrassing. I am amazed they made more movies after this. WAY too long. Plodding pace, this makes the complete lack of acting talent by Shanter unbearable.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: The crew of the Enterprise is reunited to combat a lethal force field headed toward Earth. Slow, talky, and derivative, somewhat redeemed by terrific special effects and majestic Jerry Goldsmith score; still, mainly for purists. Network and videocassette version--generally considered an improvement--runs 143m. Followed by many sequels--and several new TV series! Panavision.

Kinda bland. The visual effects and Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score are its only merits. The story's not bad, but it's dragged on. The characterization and the overall style of the original Trek is gone. Shatner's not that great of an actor, but it's not entirely his fault; the script sucks. Overall, NOT recommended.
