Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is enjoyable but it also felt lightweight and slight and ultimately inconsequential. I'm not saying the story was inconsequential, after all, they are trying to save 23rd (I think?) century earth. But it felt inconsequential. And silly as well. Also, the whole whale thing felt kind of preachy as well.

I enjoyed the movie but I do think it's one of the lesser of the Trek movies.

I think this movie is just fine. Not the best Star Trek movie, but it's really not that bad. A typical 80s campathon. I think it's kind of fun at times. The one I really dislike is Undiscovered Country. I may need to give it another watch, but I found it really stale, dry, and bland. I agree with Berardinelli's review completely. The most petty aspects of the story are given way too much attention, especially the murder "mystery" on the enterprise. Kirk's hookup in the jail is crass and out of place. Many moments are out of place. The ending scene at the conference is clumsy. And everyone is just finally too old. Every shot evokes Roger Moore in View to a Kill.

I think Final Frontier is a much more energized entry overall. Even despite the silliness of the 1989 entry, Undiscovered Country feels to me somehow more weightless and inconsequential. For me, FF actually does manage a bit of seriousness.


I think that this film explores the concept of God and what it is?
Very few science fiction films do this.
