Film Review - Star Trek V - The Final Frontier
What's wrong with this phrase? "William Shatner, Film Auteur" Yeah, you've just figured out what's wrong with this film.
Star Trek V is the worst Trek ever. Control was transferred to Shatner because of a contractual obligation. That's not a good reason to make someone producer, director, writer.
At one time, Star Trek was about the Voyages of the Starship Enterprise and a wonderful mission to push out the boundaries of human knowledge and wisdom. This flick is to show off Shatner as a horseman and a climber of rocks. Jeez, James T. Kirk was never that kind.
Common, retire this tired old cast. The stories in the current Star Trek TV series are a purer form of Trek than any of these sorry films have ever been.
