William Shatner's inauspicious feature directing debut is a double letdown.
-Variety StaffFull Review
[The] special effects, despite the hefty budget, look strictly bargain basement.
-Jonathan RosenbaumFull Review
Captain Kirk and his crew go where too many film makers have too often gone before.
-Caryn JamesFull Review
Bloated, bombastic and maddeningly pretentious.
The whole point of the movie has something to do with the search for God and Eden, but the theme is presented in the most mundane fashion imaginable.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
A snoozola of astronomic proportions.
-Rita KempleyFull Review
Of all of the Star Trek movies, this is the worst.
-Roger EbertFull Review
Worst in series; some tricky religious content.
-Charles CassadyFull Review
Easily the weakest of the original cast Star Trek films.
-Scott NashFull Review
Final Frontier is a warmly crafted picture only lacking a sophisticated technical and dramatic finesse the earlier features held in abundance. The film is never aggressively odious, just undernourished.
-Brian OrndorfFull Review
Did it really take William Shatner in the director's chair to finally give us a decent Star Trek movie?

Although the film's ontological approach may be intriguing, this rather dull entry fails to generate the kind of thoughtful, exciting adventure that made the Gene Roddenberry TV series so compelling.
The worst Star Trek movie.

Proceed with caution.

...delivers all the pleasure of a plucked pubic hair.

The plot, about a quest for the Ultimate Answer, resembles something Douglas Adams would have thrown in the bin.
Shatner can be funny, but he stinks as a director.
Disappointing production, but always good to visit the old crew.
Isn't horrible, but I'd only recommend to a diehard.
The only thing worse than letting William Shatner act in a movie is letting William Shatner direct one.
It will likely maintain its long-cemented reputation as the worst film in the series.
-James KendrickFull Review
absolutely terrible... a vanity project for William Shatner
-Christopher NullFull Review
A science fiction thriller with the moral message that we should look for God within the human heart and appreciate the moral dimensions of friendship
-Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatFull Review
The worst movie of the franchise. Even God couldn't save it. An embarrassment to the series.
Only the most fanatical Trekkies would find this dismal entry palatable.
It's amazing an entire studio would bend over to make William Shatner's ego trip.
There is no doubt about it - Star Trek V is a bad movie.
