The maturity of the Star Trek saga and its remarkable fan base have combined to produce a polished film that shines like a crown jewel in the Star Trek firmament.
75
Star Trek: Insurrection is out there where the imagination collides with roaring spaceships, exotic planets, wonderfully nutty costumes, a few choice jokes and some fascinating ideas.

The best Star Trek stories are allegorical - in addition to telling an involving story, they're about something other than going into space and blowing up enemy ships. Insurrection continues that tradition.
70
It's an interesting story, more accessible to non-Trekkers than previous entries.

This movie best exploits the strengths of the show as well, such as the chemistry among the cast.

Christian Science Monitor
Trekkers will be pleased by new characters and stunning special effects.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Rather than build on the new momentum, this one's a bit more of a cruise-control effort.

Chicago Sun-Times
There is a certain lackluster feeling to the way the key characters debate the issues, and perhaps that reflects the suspicion of the filmmakers that they have hitched their wagon to the wrong cause.

Entertainment Weekly
That's the moral nut of this highly unexceptional episode, a midlife production in which each Enterprise crew member does his or her vaudeville act.
40
A muddled, gimpy mess, filled with the worst sort of Trek clichés and ill-timed humorous outbursts.
