Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The story has enough plot switchbacks, space battles and gizmo wizardry to ensure that most viewers won't forget the film until at least the next morning.

Rotten: Doesn't exactly boldly go where no one has gone before.

The best of the odd-numbered Star Trek films, Insurrection doesn't boast nasty villains or relentless dangers, but plays like a great extended TV episode, employing a compelling plot that works as a smart political criticism to the Western imperialism.

It?s like one of the rubbish episodes where they go onto a gypsy planet because they ran out of budget! "Why are we going to this planet captain"? "Because I need some lovin? from an under developed human like alien" ?Again captain? Couldn?t we just use tea bags twice, cut out some coupons and blow up some Klingons??

Don't let some of the bad reviews for this film put you off watching it. I finally got around to watching it last week and I must say that It was no where near as bad as what some people have said about it. In-fact I thought it was pretty good. It's not the best Star Trek film but it's not the worst either. Some people have criticized it by saying that it looks like an extended television episode- All the films except 'the motion picture' have - what's the point of changing the television look and feel when it is so good? The one time they did try to change it from the episode feel (the motion picture) it was crap. Come on people, this is Star Trek - what were you expecting - this was not meant to be another Shawshank Redemption. I like this film so I'm going to give it 8 out of 10 because I don't care what other people say.
