Movie Description:
Following Kirk's encounter with Khan that left the Enterprise severely damaged and Mr. Spock dead, they return to Starfleet so that Enterprise could be repaired. Kirk's hoping to go back to the newly created Genesis planet where he laid Mr. Spock to rest. But upon arriving he is told that the Enterprise will not be repaired and that Genesis has become a delicate matter and until it's resolved, no one is allowed to go there or talk about it. McCoy is also acting strangely. Later when he starts talking about Genesis he is detained. Kirk is visited by Spock's father Sarek, who tells him that he betrayed Spock because being placed on Genesis was not what he would have wanted. He tells Kirk he's supposed to bring Spock's body along with his soul or katra as the Vulcans call it which he passes onto someone, and bring it to Vulcan for the final rites. Sarek assumes Kirk would have it but he doesn't...

Unimaginative, fails to live up to the build up

I'm a more recent Star Trek fan and have recently moved onto the movies. I have to say, this one was a bigger disappointment to Star Trek I for me.

After the how brilliant 'The Wrath of Khan' was, I was hoping Star Trek III would be a worthy follow up, but even the title seemed a little unimaginative now I look at it.

The story takes forever building up, has some great moments during that, for example, the Klingons are brilliant but it just lacks some imagination much like how 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' often felt.

It's like the franchise took one huge step forward, Star Trek II was an exciting film but still about morality at the end of the day, but this film offers none of it.
This film is the third of the franchise and addresses the theme ofdeath and resurrection of Spock, something that I honestly could notunderstand immediately but, being an alien, did not make any knot in myhead when I've got it. The script is not bad but it gets even betterfrom the moment the Klingons, a welcome element of action, are added tothe story. However, being a film that continues the story of "The Wrathof Khan," it is natural that both are similar at several points. On atechnical level, they're almost identical, the sets and costumes arethe same and the special effects are still what we could expect at thisperiod. And as for the actors, this film is almost entirely of LeonardNimoy and DeForest Kelley, actors that the script privileged and thatthey had the capacity to shine. In the end, we get a film that honorsits predecessor without, however, being able to match it.
Spoilers Ahead:

Poor Judith Anderson the first lady of Film Noir. Want to see herbefore? Watch THE STRANGE LOVE OF MARTHA IVERS and other greatperformances. Young actors, this could happen to you if you do not saveyour money. I bet England called and wanted her title back. Do youblame them? How would you like to be enveloped in smoke bombs,surrounded by bald people in bathrobes with big triangles on them? Hey,seriously, I felt really bad for her. A great actress and this is whatpeople under 40 will remember her for. If you like bald people millingabout doing some kind of hokey pokey smoke bomb ceremony for twentyminutes; this is the movie for you. Before this, Kirk brought the partsto Vulcan for reassembly, his Katra or some mumbo jumbo, hey I wasasleep at this point, who gives a crap? I love the rescue of Bones, theworst shot action scene in film history. The big guy begins his rollbefore Sulu throws him, now that is strength, must be his Katra. In thesame scene, the big guy is shown blocking the wall ram with his arm,Nimoy was not exactly Michael Bay.

If you ran the space station and Kirk, after you turned him down forusing the Enterprise, says I will hire a ship, I'll get a ship! Wouldyou raise the security around the Enterprise say a wee bit? Yes, youcan just walk right in, he never would have anticipated that, greatwriting. See, they call it a space station because they have more thanone ship there. They would not just send Excelsior, maybe like sixother ships? The Genesis planet ages in wonderful consanguinity withthe script, slow until the Enterprise is blown up then it goes likelightning. I love when humanists do ethics, see axioms haveconsequences; the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many whoseaxiom was that, let me think, I know; Adolph Hitler. Yes, that was therule he lived by, how'd that work out? It is the exact opposite ofSpock's axiom in the WRATH OF KHAN. See, put down the comic books andthink about what words mean when you say them. Why are we living on theKlingon ship? Why do I know all about Kruge's, cabbage head, littledogie? Why would I give a poop?

The film has to be seen to be believed; you will see why Kirstie Alleydeclined to reprise her role as Saavik, do you blame her? Would youlike to do some kinky, creepy scene with her fingers and Spock: thedisassembled, kiddie years? Talk about making your skin crawl scene,please we are eating out here. GROSS OUT. The film is surpassed only bySTAR TREK 5: God Wants Out Of The Picture as the absolute nadir of theoriginal cast movies. The acting is terrible; it is boring, stupid andas believable as your flying through the air. Some scenes evokedlaughter when I saw this with 500 other people. The kinky finger matingscene had non stop giggling by the audience all through it. Kirstie,you made the right decision, you saved yourself eternal humiliation.Please, get a room; the movie is bad even for Star Trek and that issaying something.
