Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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 Staff, Variety
"Director/coscripter Nicholas Meyer moves this vehicle efficiently. He employs some tremendous visuals."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Not very great Star Trek, but it's such an impeccably made popcorn movie that it's just not worth it to pretend that it matters."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Cold War-influenced exit of classic space crew."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Why is this such a good Star Trek movie? Well, Spock makes a mean captain, standing in for the imprisoned Kirk."
‑ Matthew De Abaitua, Film4
"Though patchy, this is a lot more fun than the disastrous Star Trek V."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"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 Hinson, Washington Post
"Nice to see you in action for one last time, Captain Kirk."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"...mostly combines the interminable interstellar politics of the later Star Wars films with the slowest game of Clue you've ever played."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"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.'"
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The principals' enthusiasm for their material has never seemed to fade. If anything, that enthusiasm grows more appealingly nutty with time."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"For a movie that begins with such promise, The Undiscovered Country ends with a whimper."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"entertains and has a number of interesting comments on contemporary human affairs"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"one of the best of the series"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"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. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
