Weighed down by a midsection even flabbier than the long-in-the-tooth cast, director Nicholas Meyer still delivers enough of what Trek auds hunger for to justify the trek to the local multiplex.
-Variety StaffFull Review
The principals' enthusiasm for their material has never seemed to fade. If anything, that enthusiasm grows more appealingly nutty with time.
-Janet MaslinFull Review
Director/coscripter Nicholas Meyer moves this vehicle efficiently. He employs some tremendous visuals.

If, indeed, Star Trek VI turns out to be the last of the series, it couldn't have made a more felicitous or more satisfying exit.
-Hal HinsonFull Review
For a movie that begins with such promise, The Undiscovered Country ends with a whimper.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
Nice to see you in action for one last time, Captain Kirk.
-Scott NashFull Review
entertains and has a number of interesting comments on contemporary human affairs
-John A. NesbitFull Review
Cold War-influenced exit of classic space crew.
-Charles CassadyFull Review
...mostly combines the interminable interstellar politics of the later Star Wars films with the slowest game of Clue you've ever played.
-Josh LarsenFull Review
one of the best of the series

Why is this such a good Star Trek movie? Well, Spock makes a mean captain, standing in for the imprisoned Kirk.
-Matthew De AbaituaFull Review
SPOCK: 'Logic dictates we include all the ingredients which have proved popular in our earlier films. Data indicates that one crucial element is what humans call 'tongue-in-cheek' humor; in-jokes about previous episodes, self-mocking references, etc.'
Meyer's direction and dialogue are among the most fluid and exciting of the whole series, and he manages a lovely 'final' feel, saying goodbye to the old crew and embracing the future at the same time.
-Jeffrey M. AndersonFull Review
The bang/buck ratio is high and it's packed with pithy dialogue and little emotional kicks that make it a worthy, dignified sendoff for the crew we've followed for so many (dear God, so many) years.
-Mark BourneFull Review
Though patchy, this is a lot more fun than the disastrous Star Trek V.
-Derek AdamsFull Review
The original crew at its finest, and the Trek lore at its most thrilling.
-Rob BlackwelderFull Review
As with many of the Trek movies, the acting is exaggerated and the plot has holes. But flaws and all, it's fun to watch this crew complete its final big-screen mission.
A rousing sendoff for Kirk, Spock, and Bones, and a fitting transition from the original series' Cold-War milieu to the Next-Generation age of engagement.
-Steven D. GreydanusFull Review
A heavy-handed yet curiously weightless swan song
-Bill ChambersFull Review
Shows just how difficult it is to practice peace
-Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatFull Review
There is some blood and violence in the film, but it is generally a lot of fun, a fine holiday movie.
-Robert RotenFull Review
One of the best of the Trek films with Plummer really hamming it up as a Shakespeare-quoting Klingon.
The original cast go out with a bang.
Easily the best made, most intelligent film of the entire Trek series.
A fun, exciting -- and dignified -- sign-off for Captain Kirk and crew.
-Danny GraydonFull Review
Like its even-numbered predecessors, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country is fast-paced and entertaining.
-David BezansonFull Review
Rich, action-filled and loaded with familiar literary and political references, not to mention a number of savvy in-jokes, Star Trek VI is an utter delight that should more than please fans of the series.
-Chris HicksFull Review
[The movie] realises that its strength lies in our familiarity with the characters by now and exploits this cleverly -- particularly in scenes where the crew must unearth traitors in their midst almost like in a Agatha Christie detective story.
