smacarena’s review published on Letterboxd:
I often wonder how Spock’s death scene at the end of Star Trek II would be viewed in retrospect had this storyline never happened. It would have certainly made it more dramatic. Still, this film is perhaps the most underrated Trek film that’s sandwiched between two more successful films.
If you’re going to kill off a main character and bring him back to life, there aren’t many examples of a better way to do it than this film.
