      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Generations stands as a mediocre changing of the guard for crews of the Enterprise, with a dull plot that sometimes seems like an expanded episode of the television series.

      Albert W Enjoyed it. Nice to see the TNG crew start their movies. Loved some of the lighting and effects. Data getting emotional definitely has its moments. The Nexus or whatever was "interesting" and somewhat silly but it's entertainment. 4 stars. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Mike Much better than most people remember it, and a very well handled passing of the torch. The film holds up, even if it's not the most exciting in the franchise. The debate between Kirk and Picard fans crescendoed into a film with both hero's, and gave us some of the best of each captain. Worth a watch if you're a fan of either. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Mike P Contrived transition movie bridging TOS to TNG; and it IS cool seeing the old and new people interacting;...(I personally think they should have done ALOT more of this, like Star Wars does)...But this script is boring...It's another rehash of Star Trek the Motion Picture where a sentient energy field threatens to exterminate the Enterprise...(Why did they want to do THAT one again??) So, thumbs down for this one, unfortunately 👎 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Alec B The movie is a mess but it is trying to say something profound about death and mortality, something that few mainstream movies ever try to do. Honestly the fate of Kirk here is one of the things I like about the movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Alysha S Scenes regarding Captain James T. Kirk are touching since they look back on life. It is also awesome to see him and Captain Jean-Luc Picard working together. The acting is tremendous across the board. And overall, the story is enjoyable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Blu B It's ALMOST good mainly because the last 30 minutes out of nowhere start to get much more entertaining and have more character driven drama to it. The problem is the 1 hour 20 minutes before it is just a whole lot of nothingness. It's just ok and feels very stretched out. It's half decent overall because of that final 30 minutes or so. Everything just gets better but it's too little too late. Most of the time it's just everything weve seen before in the other movies but done better and with the old crew. The dumb comedic relief is so unneeded and out of place as well. The special effecs are solid and McDowell isn't a bad villian but the plot is a bit too simliar to others (especially the weaker entries of the franchise) and it's a bit jumpy between Picard, the crew, the villians, and the opening 20 minutes with Kirk. This really needed to just focus on slimming down and getting Picard into the Nexus with Kirk iright from the sart and slim down the opening 20 minute sequence. This would've allowed a much stronger emotional connection and focused drama to stop McDowell. anyone who is a fan of the franchise or any actors in this should check this out. It's worth it to wait through the boredom to the end and set up to watch the rest of the new series. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jake Cole Slant Magazine Star Trek: Generations feels like such a miscalculation of the show’s strengths. Apr 5, 2023 Full Review Leonard Pitts Jr. Miami Herald As Kirk's showdown with Soran makes painfully apparent, it was time for him to boldly go. Rated: 2/4 Aug 17, 2021 Full Review Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer Three things make the film worthwhile: [William] Shatner's performance; the sequence involving Data getting his "emotion chip" implant; and John Alonzo's crystalline cinematography, which makes Generations the most beautiful Trek ever. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 25, 2020 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The result was perhaps not what devoted fans hoped for, but in its own right, it's a solid production and entertaining Star Trek adventure. Rated: 3/4 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk For every good moment there are two or three awkward ones, and while there is an undeniable thrill of seeing the two “generations” of Enterprise captains working together, it is hard not to wish that the film had more grandeur and more guts. Rated: 2/4 Jun 19, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A solid franchise entry. Rated: 3/4 Apr 8, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
