    A reviewer

    Star Trek III:the Search for Spock is a great movie! Star Trek III (1984)is directed by Leonard Nimoy (Spock)who was given the director's chair for this movie! William Shatner (Admiral James T. Kirk) is great! Dr. McCoy (Deforest Kelly) is great! The rest of the Star Trek cast is great! This film is in the tradition of the original series. A

    Spock lives!!

    OK so I HAD to see this movie after seeing ST2. The special effects were very good and the story line was believable. I did NOT like the actress who played Savaak in this one. Also many things did not make sense to me in this movie, how come Spock didn't keep aging and eventually die like the Genesis planet did? I absolutely HATED seeing the Enterprise destroyed, that was very upsetting. Dr McCoy has many many funny lines in this movie. The very end of the movie when Spock starts remembering things is touching... yup, you gotta see ST 4 after this one!!!

    Outlaws...

    What could be cooler than to steal the Enterprise? STIII is a shocker in many ways. Its character charisma retains well and bands them into (of all things) outlaws in cohoots with the Vulcan Ambassador, Sarek. The movie plays on the feelings left over from the end of STII and creates a gut-wrenching, tight story. III provides, ST fans with new toys...the Klingon Bird of Prey, science vessels, and the ''great experiment'' USS Excelsior (a far superior ship than the refitted Enterprise). Although, the Excelsior is not immune from Mr. Scott's handiwork, it's still a nice visual site (as is the interior of Spacedock). The crew goes on a forbidden mission back to Genesis, steals the Enterprise, and duels with the Bird of Prey. These luxuries combine to a few sad moments, a goodbye to a ST mainstay, and the spiritual ending that leaves you wanting for more and anticipating ST: IV. I left one star off because it does have a few boring moments...about 7 minutes worth. The adventure begins, again.

    A great ride

    I really enjoyed this film in the theater when it came out. The plot basically is a setup for a movie that I think should have happened, but didn't. This film starts right where Trek II leaves off; Spock is dead and the crew of the Enterprise is still in shock. When the Enterprise arrives on earth, Kirk and Scotty get the equally distressing news that the Enterprise is to be decommissioned. We also find out that Dr. McCoy is acting quite strangely since the events with Khan. On earth, it is revealed to Kirk by Spock's father, Sarek, that the dead body of Spock should not have been left on The Genesis Planet in a photon torpedo tube. Sarek thinks that Spock might have had time to transfer his Katra, his living spirit, to Kirk before he died. No such luck, however, Kirk puts two and two together and determines that McCoy was the recipient of the Katra. On the other side, Christopher Lloyd plays a Klingon named Lord Kruge who has heard of the genesis Device and wants to secure its secrets for the Klingon Empire. On the Genesis Planet, Lt. Saavik and Kirk's son, David, are investigating the planet for Starfleet and find... no more spoilers. It is a race to see if Spock is saved and Kirk (who has, by now, sacrificed his ship and his career for his friend) and his renegade crew are redeemed. The direction by Leonard Nimoy is workman and the music by James Horner expands on themes already set forth in ST II. Again, it is the perfrmances by the actors and, in this case, the dialog, that makes this movie memorable. There is also the introduction of a new starship class, Excelsior, captained by James B. Sikking in a classic performance. The problem with this film is, it is the middle of an unintended trilogy (no one expected Leonard Nimoy's willing participation in this movie) and as such, the question is ''How do we top this?'' My answer would have been, ''Star Trek IV: Courts Martial'' Leonard Nimoy's answer, ''Star Trek IV: Save the Whales''.

    Good Film,nice chapter

    This film does throw away the so-called ''odd number curse'' since it is a good watchable story that connects STAR TREK'S II and IV in a nice way.The work that Leonard Nimoy put in as director is part of it,but the story is well written and respects the STAR TREK name.This is a movie with a great plot,great looking starships(of classes we read about in the TV series era but never saw),and good acting by the whole cast.There are points in this film where the cast were able to ''play around alittle'' with the script--'don't call me tiny' and 'get in the closet' were only two of the light-hearted momemts that helped to make this film good.It's true that this isn't the best of the STAR TREK films,but it's good enough to be a great film.
