3.0 out of 5 stars Updated to reflect new 6/7/05 Special Edition September 15, 2003
Format:DVD
Please note: This review is for the Special Edition of "Star Trek: Insurrection" released 6/7/05 and was updated.

Most of these reviews of Insurrection damn the film with faint praise. It wasn't this, it wasn't that. The Federation wouldn't do this. There's petty squabbles about legal points, etc. Writer Michael Piller clearly uses Star Trek Insurrection, much as Roddenberry did, as a soapbox to decry the injustices visited upon others. Usually he'd use Star Trek as a analogy of what had occurred in the past or present.

The next to last installment in the "Trek" film franchise, "Star Trek: Insurrection" received a bad rap from the very beginning. Despite the fact that it was scripted by one of the series best writers (Michael Piller a producer and writer on "The Dead Zone") and directed by series vet/actor Jonathan Frakes the film was seen as disappointing as a follow up to the action driven "Star Trek: First Contact". While the film certainly lacks the intensity of "First Contact", the humor and thoughtfulness that drove some of the best episodes of the TV series remain remarkably intact. "Insurrection" certainly is much, much closer to an expanded bigger budget TV episode but it is by no means a bad "Trek" film.

Data (Brent Spiner) while on a covert mission to gather information on an alien race called the Ba'ku malfunctions and exposes the mission to the natives. It seems that the radiation belt that surrounds the planet is a fountain of youth reversing aging for those that live there. The Federation in collaboration with a race called the Son'a plan on relocating the Ba'ku so that the Federation can "harvest" the radiation belt and use it to cure people of illnesses. The leader of the Son'a Ru'afo (F.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the best!!!!!!!! October 7, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have read the reviews and they certainly are mixed. In my and my family's opinion (we are all trekkies) this movie is simply the best to date (pre-Nemesis). It has character instead of the usual pomp and circumstance (which I like as well). But, something was different here, there is a real cause, it provokes a real longing to see the right thing done. The acting was simply phenomenal. This is not your run of the mill sci-fi - simply much more. If you are just interested in visual effects - get a life and watch something boring. This one is way above the baseline. The movie doesn't rely simply on the techno skill of the special effects crew - it relies on the actors as well and the cause - a wonderful movie with a real heart. The people on this planet represent what we all might like to have - a real life of satisfaction away from the pressures and demands that drive us into the grave 20 years before our time - something worth fighting for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound over Substance. January 11, 2000
Format:DVD
OK, lets face it. We want to love Star Trek movies because we feel so apart of the series. And for the most part, the movies just don't hit their mark. As a movie, this one probably ranks fourth in the series behind, Kahn, IV, and First Contact. But it's certainly not a bad film, which can't be said for about half of the Star Trek movies. However, if you have a sub woofer, surround sound speakers and are buying this for your 5.1 DVD... Pull out your wallet and get it. Star Trek is perfect for DVD. The Laser Fights, the Space Battles, the hiding in caves during an alien bombing give ample opportunity to be pounded into your chairs. In DVD no one can hear you scream, simply because the movie is so darn loud. I LOVE IT. So if you're a Star Trek fan or just someone who enjoys your home theater. Pull out your wallet and have a great time. However, if you don't have 5.1 DVD with all the trimmings, buy the wrath of Kahn, or simply go buy a better movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure and perfect Star Trek! September 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Constantly being listed as one of the worst Star Trek films ever made, this movie could hardly be better. It embodies a perfect Star Trek story: a morality tale with an engaging dilemma, a cast of great chracters with a carefully cultivated, almost perfect chemistry, fantastic pacing and timing, great humor and photography, a beautiful score and a great message. It is the perfect follow-up to the SciFi horror actioner First Contact and clearly superior to both the overly constructed Generations and the somewhat underwhelming, sterile Nemesis. I believe this picture to be both a classic and the late Michael Piller's masterpiece, something which all the people involved with the teenage BS J.J. Abrams is serving nowadays should take a hard look at!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good ST:TNG Episode November 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is a good Star Trek _episode_, meaning it would fit in very well as an episode of the tv series. It's not as flashy or dramatic as most of the movies, however. The story leans more toward the characters and their inter-relationships than toward big space battles. It's a movie for the long-term TNG fan, not the casual SF action movie fan. The story isn't terribly memorable, but does have some very nice character-developing moments for the Enterprise regulars. Worth watching and no where near living up to the "odd-numbered movie" curse!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up, fellow Star Trek fans! August 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
In a TV series, especially a sci-fi series, you expect a certain number of shoot-em-up shows. You expect to see our heroes conquer evil aliens while overcoming seemingly impossible odds. but will someone please show me where in the rulebook it says every show should be about this? Some of the original series and TNG's best shows were about political, romantic, and/or humorous exploits of our favorite characters. "The trouble with Tribbles" is almost always in a listing of the top 5 shows whenever TV guide or simply a group of trekkies talk about their favorites, and "The city on the edge of Forever" won a Hugo for crying out loud and neither one of them were slashed with phaser fire. Yes, Insurrection may have been a little uneven in spots plotwise but I've not seen any you could drive a semi through. And the central theme of the displacing of a small group of people to satisfy the demands of a larger group as being a terrible injustice as well as a clear violation of Trek's prime directive is right on par with the overall vision of Star Trek. I don't think Roddenberry will turn over in his grave because of this one and neither should a true Trek fan get all disappointed just because the Borg, the Romulans, the Dominion or any other "traditional" Star Trek villian is not involved. In fact, I think this film breaks the so-called legacy of "odd-numbered" trek films being not so good as "even-numbered" films. No, Insurrection is no "Wrath of Khan" but it is a solid entry in the series. After all, Johnathan Frakes himself said they wanted to have to have some fun with this one and I think they accomplished that while still making an entertaining movie that lives up to Star Trek's ideals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't stand well on its own as a movie.
Felt more like it should have been an hour long episode from the series than it's own movie. Felt pretty flat compared to other movies in the Star Trek series.
