This film debuted at a time when sci fi were very popular and came about following a TV series that reached levels of popularity that are still enviable today. These assumptions could have made this movie into an icon but that never happened.This film debuted at a time when sci fi were very popular and came about following a TV series that reached levels of popularity that are still enviable today. These assumptions could have made this movie into an icon but that never happened. The director's exaggerated ambition has created a nearly three-hour film that does little or nothing good. The rhythm of the film is almost a torture session: it creeps into unnecessary scenes without any reason. It even seems that the editing team just did not want to get bored doing their job decently. The film has no screenplay for such length. In fact, it has no script, it has an idea for a script that did not find any happy development. The main actors (William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley) were perfectly up to the challenge, but the rest of the cast left unwanted, lifeless interpretations to match the scenery and costumes that look like pajamas or nurse's robes. In fact, everything on that ship looks like a hospital corridor. If all this had been different, we would probably be facing a classic as dear as the original series. Unfortunately this did not happen. Expand

I'm a huge Star Trek fanatic I love every series and every movie except for The Motion Picture. This is put simply the weakest Star Trek entry ever. Every now and then I watch it because it's Star Trek but I still hate it. Most of the problemI'm a huge Star Trek fanatic I love every series and every movie except for The Motion Picture. This is put simply the weakest Star Trek entry ever. Every now and then I watch it because it's Star Trek but I still hate it. Most of the problem is the pacing it's way too slow and painful, theirs a lot of long and slow sequences where it's just not interesting and quite boring. Theirs also barely any action at all.

Star Trek at it's weakest. But Star Trek becomes great again The Wrath Of Khan forwards because the pacing issues are resolved.

Its A Torture although Visually Stunning but sometimes little dumb!the music was epic but the impact was missing,the story and screenplay is bad it felt like a simple premise stretched into a 2-hrs movie,As per 1st star trek experience theIts A Torture although Visually Stunning but sometimes little dumb!the music was epic but the impact was missing,the story and screenplay is bad it felt like a simple premise stretched into a 2-hrs movie,As per 1st star trek experience the characters were forgettable and there math and science throughout the movie was like i'am in a class it was way too much and watching whole things explained in detail and then the ending outcome of all that was literally torture,the starting intro was amazing the ship and visuals and all then the intro to characters and fast paced situation overview after that the slow and stretched actions till the end it was too much to handle,the simple premise of attack and defend and explore unknown thing has to be more engaging and interesting whereas we got is A class of math!some things in whole movie felt little mind-blowing and good the Visuals obviously and the ship and Voyager twist and all but apart from that the characters,the story and screenplay and the dumb thing it was all a mental torture,as per starting star trek series freshly better watch TV series,Overall its a Worst Movie!
