Film Review - Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country
This really ought to be called Star Trek VI- The Apology.
You know what's wrong with Trek films? It's the economics. The typical Star Trek TV show costs about 1.3 million bucks. Nope, that's not cheap, but it's peanuts compared to the price of one of these films.
That's a problem, because the TV series takes risks and is about exploring our society and asking the really tough questions. A $50 million-plus film can't afford to take a risk; so it goes for the easy win.
Oh darn, the Klingons seem to have blown up their moon and polluted their atmosphere. What should we really nice humans do?
Lots of really cool space battle effects. It's not enough.
