After 2013, I have finally decided to do a review on a STAR TREK film, I quite find that the first two instalments weren't so bad after all in spite of being originally spun out of a program that created a cult following among the Trekkie fan bases everywhere. Since the now untimely passing of Spock's actor Leonard Nimoy, I have decided to post the review of THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK (TSFS) to pay his respects. To resonate the fans of the Enterprise crew, TSFS continues the adventure only to go downwards of what many considered it to be the middle child of the original film series and it's almost near being the weakest instalment. There is no overbalance of the plot and action in a subpar Trek film, it feels there is nothing left to compensate the drama and the audacity which is all but spent on THE WRATH OF KHAN (click here). This was Leonard Nimoy's directorial debut and even he knew that this film lacked a spark that fans were disappointed with. He still could have done better in crafting a scene that had the same intensity and climax of the death scene in the second movie.
Christopher Lloyd who while in his big break at Hollywood is solid enough to showcase his performance as a Klingon commander who I consider is a very brooding antagonist. This consequently lead to Lloyd in the next year to eventually play a role of a scientist who would create a DeLorean time machine and be used by a teen slacker to travel back into the 1950s.
Could it be that THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK is a decent episode which due to lack of direction did not match the excitement and tears shown in THE WRATH OF KHAN? It's predecessor had started the story-arc of the Genesis, it'll have to wait until the fourth sequel is introduced to the Trekkers which would be released in the next two years in the final frontier. Stay tuned for the next Trek movie review until Scotty beams ourselves up!
