Competent, but not great...

Perhaps it is the inevitable comparison to the previous episode, but Star Trek III very much has a feel of being low-rent or second-rate. An excellent example of this can be seen whenever Saavik is on the screen. Kirstie Alley may not be the greatest actor in the world, but Robin Curtis succeeds in making her look like Anna Paquin or Sigourney Weaver by comparison. The strange thing is that Merritt Butrick seems to suffer a decline in performance whenever he is in the same frame with her.

Let's face it, any dialogue heavy film was going to be a letdown after the epic battles in Star Trek II. A very personal battle between two enemies that have been festering in one another's minds for years is always going to make a brief fight with a crew of Klingons seem pretty restrained by comparison. A lot of the film's plot elements also come second-hand from the previous film, so it isn't as if much is done to separate it.

The spaceship sequences also look far less realistic in this film than is the case in the past two films. It seems that Paramount hired another effects house to simulate these moments, and the result is that the ships look as if they are under a constant invisible spotlight, rather than the realistic tones that were evident in the previous two films. The combat doesn't seem nearly as realistic, either. After the massive tradings of torpedoes and phaser energy in the previous film, expecting us to believe the Enterprise can be disabled by a single torpedo is a bit much.

The dynamic between Kirk, Spock, and McCoy was always a big part of what made the original series work, so it's not surprising that an entire film be dedicated to restoring this dynamic. To the credit of the screenwriters, it works. The fights on the surface of Genesis, and some of the dialogues, give the whole film a connection with the audience that later films in the franchise particularly lack. Everyone certainly has a friend that they'd do things like this for if they had to, so it's hard not to get behind the Enterprise crew as they battle for one of their most prominent members.

I would have appreciated more footage to show how Uhura arrives on Vulcan, and what the Federation does when they learn that the crew is on Vulcan. Still, the film is much more tightly paced than some give it credit for, so we can let that one slide. It is, however, interesting to note how little internal security the Starfleet orbital station has. I would have thought that the Starfleet version of the drunk tank would have more than just two security guards, given the wide variation in alien races that make up the organisation.

In all, I gave Star Trek III a six out of ten. Most sequels try to be bigger and bolder than the previous episode. Star Trek III is an exception, but it certainly is a worthwhile viewing if you like a bit of science fiction.

Garbage. Was Spock in full makeup and costume while directing this mess? What a shame! Star Trek Retirement Home Version.

Garbage. Makes the new Star Trek movies look good. Crap story, acting, cinematography, lighting, sets, costumes, fx. No charisma. Just plain garbage. What a shame.

I'm a fan of the original TV series. I hate all other TV series, including the Next Generation, and all the movies. Even the worst original TV series, like I, Mudd is better than the crap that was produced after the original TV series ended, including this movie, Star Trek 3.

Here's the main problem. The story just plain sucks. The dialogue sucks. The acting is garbage. Best acting was Bones, and even that was a joke compared to the 60's TV. When Kirk found out his son was killed, it's pure embarrassing. What the hell is the deal with FAT SCOTCHY with that stupid MUSTACH? Maybe someone tells him, hey you want to be in the movie, lose some weight and that stupid mustache. Jackoff, Solo, and U Whore You, were there, but nothing special. Spock directed this mess. Maybe he should stick to acting. He was great in the TV series. Here, he's not even there until the end, and the dialogue was just retirement home sleep inducing. What about the villain, Christopher Lorde. He's a good actor. Here, he's a freaking mess, joke cliché nonsense. He tries to pull Kirk down, and gets Kirk's boot in the face and falls into a volcano. Not suck a great villain. Spock's father, another mess. He was great in the TV series. Here, not so good. On Vulcan, U Whore You just shows up. Did Scotchy beam her up?

I would rather if this movie was just the original cast sitting in a retirement home watching tv and telling stupid jokes. That would have made a better movie. Captain Jerk, Spot, Boner, Jackoff, Solo, U Whore You, Scotchy. What a mess. The costumes? 80's neon disco!

What we have here is pollution. It pollutes the airwaves. If you want to unpolluted, consider not watching any of the movies or any other tv series, and just stick to the original 60's TV. There are a few bad episodes in the original as well. But if you stick with it you'll find most have some great stories, acting and even fx.

May the original Live Long and Prosper, and the rest go to hell.

Unimaginative, fails to live up to the build up

I'm a more recent Star Trek fan and have recently moved onto the movies. I have to say, this one was a bigger disappointment to Star Trek I for me.

After the how brilliant 'The Wrath of Khan' was, I was hoping Star Trek III would be a worthy follow up, but even the title seemed a little unimaginative now I look at it.

The story takes forever building up, has some great moments during that, for example, the Klingons are brilliant but it just lacks some imagination much like how 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' often felt.

It's like the franchise took one huge step forward, Star Trek II was an exciting film but still about morality at the end of the day, but this film offers none of it.
