Best of all the Star Trek movies, and a fitting finale to the series. As usual, there is a philosophical content: the "undiscovered country" of the title is not another planet but the future. Star Trek VI neatly spoofs the notion that the thawing of a cold war means the end of history. But basically this is a first-rate action movie with impressive special effects, ably directed by Nicholas Meyer (who also directed Star Trek II ). There are some of the seediest-looking aliens since the bar-room scene in Star Wars, and the dialogue and ideas are consistently witty. Even if youíre not normally a Star Trek fan, youíll enjoy this one. A few critics didnít appreciate that it was any different from some of its less inspired predecessors. Most, however, appreciated its strengths.
