Movie Review: 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country' (1991)

MPAA Rating: PG
EW's GRADE
B-

Details Rated: PG; Length: 109 minutes; Genres: Action/Adventure, Sci-fi and Fantasy; With: Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Boasting a high-tech gleam absent from grainy prints shown in theaters last winter, this letterboxed disc of Star Trek VI also restores three minutes chopped out of the theatrical version at the behest of Trek's creator, the late Gene Roddenberry. An assassin foiled in the finale is exposed not as a Klingon but as an Ollie North-type officer — a denouement less in synch with Roddenberry's vision of an incorruptible Starfleet but more full-bodied as drama.
