Movie Review 130: Star Trek V The Final Frontier

This has to be the most underrated Star Trek Movie of all time.  The search for God and Heaven finally make it to a Trek film. You couldn't ask for a higher concept than that. 

A big critic of this film called it "one of the weirdest Trek flicks, with all the good and bad that goes with that".

I must point out that encounters with "godlike beings" have happened many times in the Star Trek Universe. It's all part of the theme of "going where no one has gone before".

The cult leader/bad guy, Sybok, who wins over many followers is both a complicated and charismatic person. With Christ-like abilities, he is able to feel someone's else pain. When he takes over the Enterprise, most of the crew willingly follow him.

All of the Star Trek movies are being shown on "The Space Channel" and I  watched this one a few nights ago.

The biggest knock against the flick could be the special effects. It just didn't measure up to other features and a better "heaven" could have been created for the end of Sybok's quest.

This was the last film the original crew made together and the camaraderie was great between Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

Despite the critics, this movie is well worth a view or two. Three Stars.
