I saw it on theaters 35 years ago. Loved it then, absolutely cherish it now. Many of the cast have taken the real voyage home since then, and watching their talents in this movie makes me appreciate them, and everyone in the credits even more. Thanks for the experience again!

Seeing it on a large screen in a movie theater is much better than watching at home even on an 82 inch tv.

I never got to see it on the big screen, until now. My personal favorite of the original cast movies with a story line which still needs enforcing today. The whale songs on the big theater speakers, their fins slapping the water, that was awesome and I never got that watching it on VHS or DVD.

Really enjoyable to see this film on the big screen for the first time. Great remaster! More of this please Paramount!

It’s Star Trek at its best. Add the Fathom informational lead-ins and you’ve got a more-than-winner. Fathom events are just plain fun!

A beautiful print of one of my favorite movies of all time. An expertly directed, performed, and written Star Trek film whose themes hold up 35 years later.

I enjoyed the movie. It was fun to see it on the big screen again! I did not appreciate that it started more than 30 minutes late!

I saw this in the theaters five times in 1986. This movie needs the big screen experience. Movies II-IV were perfect. If the Trek franchise had ended after this movie, it would mean not one bit less than it does now. Leonard did a fantastic job crafting this film. My teenager daughter loved it.

It's always great and exciting to see any Trek movie on the big screen even when these films are easily accessible in the comfort of ones' own abode.

Glorious print. What sets this ST movie aside from others, and from many other movies in general, is that the only antagonist is time. There is no mustache-twirling villain. This alleged ws the film to have a lot of heart and convey its social message about conservation and whales with a little more sincerity. Although the film is a tad cheesy in parts, it is definitely worth seeing, more than once. Very glad I went to see it on the big screen.

“The bureaucratic mentality is the only constant in the universe”. Love that scene!

Metacritic

88

This is easily the most absurd of the Star Trek stories - and yet, oddly enough, it is also the best, the funniest and the most enjoyable in simple human terms. I'm relieved that nothing like restraint or common sense stood in their way.

Metacritic review by Roger Ebert

Nimoy directs the comedy in a loose, relaxed, almost sketch-like manner, but when the film moves into its multiple-cliffhanger climax, he's still able to generate some genuine dash and tension. The only drawback is that the Enterprise gang is starting to look a little long in the tooth for such strenuous action.

Star Trek IV, while not a superior effort, is an effective and enjoyable sample of entertainment -- not good science fiction, but a lightweight piece of comic fantasy utilizing characters so familiar that they feel like old friends.
