Not Spock
7 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It must have been nice for Leonard Nimoy to lose the ears and not play Spock in this made for TV movie. He's the commander of a submarine with enemy agents on board,fighting both sabotage and ill health,this is a neat little suspense story which rattles along entertainingly to the end.

And it's to Nimoy's acting ability that after a while you stop thinking of him as Spock and just see him as the sub's commander.

Surrounded by other familiar faces from TV films/series, it's good ensemble work from all concerned. Just wish today's film makers could learn that brevity can be a plus and not a minus and not every film has to be over three hours!!
