A satisfactory continuation.

This film is the third of the franchise and addresses the theme of death and resurrection of Spock, something that I honestly could not understand immediately but, being an alien, did not make any knot in my head when I've got it. The script is not bad but it gets even better from the moment the Klingons, a welcome element of action, are added to the story. However, being a film that continues the story of "The Wrath of Khan," it is natural that both are similar at several points. On a technical level, they're almost identical, the sets and costumes are the same and the special effects are still what we could expect at this period. And as for the actors, this film is almost entirely of Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley, actors that the script privileged and that they had the capacity to shine. In the end, we get a film that honors its predecessor without, however, being able to match it.

The Perfect Continuation From Part 2

This movie picks right up from where Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan left off. Khan was a great "cliff-hanger" film that deliberately left an opening for Search for Spock. If you've never watched the Star Trek films and want to do so then I highly suggest you to watch Wrath of Khan before you watch The Search for Spock so you will know what is going on... but you will not have to watch the first movie in order to know what is going on in parts 2 and 3.

To talk about The Search for Spock without giving away too much for first time viewers is hard to do. I can say that this film concerns a Klingon named Commander Kruge and his crew, the planet Genesis and, duh, Kirk and crew searching for Mr. Spock.

Once again, another outstanding movie that fell in love with as a pre-teen and I find it quite "fascinating" today. A really good film for fans of Star Trek and has a happy ending.

10/10

Up your shaft.....

The unpleasant incident with Khans Wrath had cost the life of Mr. Spock...........or so it seemed.

Admiral Kirk is informed by Spock's father Sarek that his son is being kept alive in the thoughts of one of the crew members. It now becomes necessary to search for Spock's body, so that flesh and soul can be rejoined on Vulcan.

It turns out that Spock's spirit is residing within the mind of the Vulcan's longtime shipmate, Dr. McCoy.

Finding the body is another matter, since the Enterprise has been consigned to the trash heap and thus is out of Kirk's jurisdiction......

With a helpful 'previously on....' At the beginning of the film, ST:TSFS takes no time in getting straight to the main point of the narrative, find Spock, and maybe we can find ourselves along the way.

There are a lot of metaphors in the film surrounding life, mortality, and finally death, but these never really hinder the pace of the story, and after the tense and dark second entry, it's a bit of a relief that this has a more light hearted, almost Schumacher touch to the sets and the colours of the film.

Take Lloyds uber villain, as despicable as he is, he's almost pantomime with his performance and gait, and when we first meet him with his Henson Workshop pet, and that really eighties neon lighting, it takes the urgency away from his motivation.

But Lloyd seems to be enjoying the fact he is playing a Klingon, and Nimoy as director just seems to let him do what he wants. Shatner is more Shatner in this, and he hams up the screen, especially in the hilarious final fight between him and Lloyd (I particularly loved the backflip).

But it's all highly enjoyable, the sets are astonishing, and the film is full of vibrant colours that almost make the film feel a little like 'The Temple Of Doom' in the final act (which was out at the same time).

But do yourself a favour, don't do what my father did and take me to see this without seeing the prior movie, you'll feel like you're watching totally incoherent.

It's best watching II and III back to back.

It works so much better...
