One of my favorite films from my childhood. Although it's ripe with scientific and technical flaws, it never-the-less captured my imagination as a child and lays the ground for a fun mystery/action adventure. Basically a "haunted house" movie set in space, The Black Hole manages to deliver an eerie yet fun adventure while giving us two of the screens most memorable robot characters, V.I.N.Cent and Maximilian. Check it out.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
As a die-hard Trekker I'm biased towards old school, so I admit that up front. That said there's a great deal to like here including the lead actor's portrayals of Kirk, Spock & McCoy. Karl Urban's McCoy is clearly the best and overall its a great film with lots of adventure and wonderful pacing.
Things that let me down:
• Scotty in water tubes
• Bazillion lens flares
• Enterprise being built on Earth not in space (AND IN IOWA)
