Consensus: Although not terrible, the sluggishly paced Insurrection plays like an extended episode of the TV series.

Lisa Alspector
Chicago Reader

The extravagant makeup and special effects are actually unobtrusive because they're demanded by the pleasantly formulaic story, whose conflicts--and broad, innocuous political allegory -- justify the heartwarming resolution.

Fun for most folks, heaven for Trekkers.

The problem with Insurrection [isn't] that it's like a two-part episode. The problem is that it's like a one-part episode that was more than doubled in length without having nearly enough drama.

Strikes a deft balance of predictable heroics and quirky humor.

Liam Lacey
Globe and Mail

More of the the same-old -same-old.

Charles Cassady
Common Sense Media

Like a long episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Despite the usual strained stabs at topical social significance, Frakes maintains a brisk pace, staging the battle scenes with panache and undercutting the absurd techno gibberish with crass but leavening humour.

The latest and ninth installment in that line, Star Trek: Insurrection, lacks the adrenalized oomph of its predecessor, but no adventure of the Starship Enterprise is without its gee-whiz affability.

Feels like an overly long, slightly dull episode from the series.

This was a very interesting Star Trek film, quite different from the others, I remember. I only wish I could see it again, since the story escapes my memory.
